About

We are “big firm” alumni, but we do things differently. We are veteran, “hands on” lawyers; if you hire us, you get us. There won’t be a younger lawyer taking the case over after the initial client conference. We’d appreciate the opportunity to discuss your case with you.

Over the past three decades, Carroll & Weiss lawyers have represented some of the most recognized names in American business. For many of these companies, our work was not a single case,  but instead a long representation with significant responsibilities.
