Community Outreach

D. CARR LAW is like the jalapeño lime sorbet in a world of vanilla ice cream.  And connecting with the community is incredibly important.  

 

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 also join us during our Community Outreach Engagement Events to meet D. CARR LAW and discuss your unique views!

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.
