Founding Attorney

DEVIKA L. CARR, ESQ.


I started this firm in November 2016 because I wanted to take a creative approach to providing my community the access to legal representation and counseling services they deserved.  My personal story led me to exclusively focus on criminal defense and domestic violence for almost 2 years, but my story has changed.

As a wife, mother, and entrepreneur, I am never opposed to listening to my heart and following my passions.  And I know that I best serve my community when I follow those passions. So I decided to transition the goals of my practice and focus on helping children with special education rights fight back when their rights are violated.

This is an area of law that hit my family hard this year and I am determined to make sure children and their families/guardians have the strength and support they need to fight against the school advocates who are failing to provide our children the special education they deserve and are entitled to.

You are encouraged to take as much information as you can from this community website.

I look forward to being of service to you, your child, your family, your friends, or anyone who needs a passionate advocate in their corner.

If you’re interested in taking a deep dive to discover how I came to make this transition, read this letter: What to Do When Your Heart Calls Out for Something New: An Open Letter.
