Consumer Bankruptcy

In our endeavor to meet the demands of life, work and family, we are often compelled to utilize, what seems to be, easy and readily available credit.

Real Estate

Buying and selling real estate is a multi-phased process that requires due diligence including title searches, property inspections, and a careful review of all of the documents.

Estate Planning and Administration

In Maryland, administrative and judicial probate is a court-supervised procedure for the identification and collection of the assets of a deceased person, the payment of the decedent’s liabilities and the transfer of the decedent’s assets to beneficiaries.

Very Supportive and Understanding
Mr. Carter was excellent from the first phone call of inquiry to the very last email. I recommend him for all of your Bankruptcy needs. He was willing to explain the process in detail. He answered all my questions in a timely manner. Every inquiry was responded to within a 24hr period. The process was very smooth and he was there all the way. I was never treated like a number but more like a cherished client. Mr. Carter is a man of great talent, patience and understanding. He will take care of you better than most lawyers in Baltimore City. I interviewed alot of them before I selected Mr. Carter. They all wanted money and didn’t have much time, but Mr. Carter wanted to help me and he understood where I was in my life. You will not be disappointed I promise you that.
