COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

community-committed

At D. CARR LAW, we don’t deny there are thousands of lawyers to choose from, but D. CARR LAW is like  jalapeño lime sorbet in a world of vanilla ice cream.  Spending time  connecting with the community so they know people truly care about them is incredibly important.  

D. CARR LAW is sharing  monthly campaigns, community engagement projects, and community initiatives to improve the level of inspiration and positivity people feel.

No professional robots exist in this firm.  D. CARR LAW cares about the problems you or someone you know may be facing and you deserve to make informed decisions so D. CARR LAW is not afraid to give you what you need to know to identify when a problem exists, when you may need help, and who you can trust.

LEGAL LITERACY INITIATIVE

Encouraging legal literacy is our preventative approach to combating common misunderstands about the legal system viewed by our communities.  D. CARR LAW does this creatively through our Legal Literacy Cookbook Series. Think of it like receiving a lesson from civics class in grade school except this is practical stuff most of us weren’t taught.  Throughout Devika L. Carr’s legal career, it bothered her how often she heard people say, “I’ve never been in legal trouble so this is new to me and I don’t know what to expect.”  Not because she didn’t want to help them, but because she was disappointed they were not already given the free tools they needed to improve their legal literacy and improve their basic understandings of what the legal system is really like, not just the charismatic renditions played out on television.

This is an ongoing initiative.  You can read about it more here.  You can also join us during our Community Outreach Engagement Events to meet D. CARR LAW and discuss your unique views!

MONTHLY CAMPAIGNS

FEBRUARY 2017: Stories We Love Campaign

February is recognized as a time to celebrate love.  At D. Carr Law we help people fight for a fair chance at having a bright future despite arrests or convictions. To kickoff our first campaign, we are sharing Stories We Love because they support our mission and inspire us to help as many people as we can.

Emotion is Universal: February 6, 2017

Emotion is  universal and often generated through movement, which is why it’s important to make every movement intentionally, knowing it can change the course of someone’s emotions.

True heroes are those who connect with others through emotion, who believe in brightening the lives of many through compassion, understanding and selfless offerings. Solutions to problems are not always obvious but results become noticeable when someone offers a genuine ability and interest to help.

At D. CARR LAW we extend sincerity when offering our community members real solutions to problems. We do this because our business is built on a promise to brighten the futures of people we care about in the community we love. We know the problems people face cause unwanted emotions but we know there is a way to improve these emotions and transform lives in wonderful ways.

What’s your superpower? What intentional movements do you make to touch the hearts and change the lives of those around you?

“The Present”: February 20, 2017

Stories We Love_ The Present

Millions have witnessed the remarkable story called, “The Present,” which comes to us courtesy of visual artists Jacob Frey and Markus Kranzler.

You can view it here: https://youtu.be/WjqiU5FgsYc

We love this story because it summarizes the common experience of realizing a problem, identifying the negative emotions associated with the problem, and recognizing a solution exists.

At first, the young man is too busy to see what is in front of him: a solution to his problem.

Then, he became curious.  What happens next is unexpected!  But then, he becomes extremely disappointed.  He feels frustrated and pushes his problem to the side by ignoring the solution provided to him, leaving it to appear unwanted.

As time passes, he realizes the solution has an unexpected gift to offer.  It has come before him for a reason.  And emotion connects them.  The present becomes the solution to a problem that has affected him deeply.

The present is in his life to make it better.  And he steps outside to accept it.

Legal issues are problems to most people, but at D. CARR LAW, we brighten people’s futures by providing creative solutions to legal issues.

We are in your life to make it better.  Step outside and accept it.

Let us help you.
