Devika L. Carr, Esq.
After spending 2 years as an Assistant Public Defender for Broward County, Florida, I wanted to focus on domestic violence defense. There’s a lot to dislike about how the legal system works, but I am a firm believer that caring about people first has changed my mindset and approach. My experience in domestic violence as a niche area of law makes a few things certain: people are unfairly displaced in the eyes of the law, the public, and society generally, when they are wrongfully or unfairly accused and charged with domestic violence or violence related crimes. And the consequences are unfair.
My approach to being a legal professional and business owner is to focus on learning about the needs and desires of the people in my community so they can progress beyond their legal challenges and above their future goals. I’ve received a lot of criticism for being community driven, genuine, and caring, (because apparently that translates to some people as not caring about profits). I’ve been told people won’t care about me brightening their futures but will only care about me solving their problems. I’m willing, committed and able to do both. And that’s what makes me one incredible attorney in a legal profession of over 80,000 active members to choose from. If you are only looking for your problem to be solved, I’m probably not a good fit. If you want someone who can solve your problem efficiently and effectively, AND effectuate positive changes for the benefit of your future, I am the best choice you have.
