Daniel C. Carr

“What I enjoy most about my practice is the ability to help employers be proactive, with the goal of reducing or eliminating their risk of litigation.  I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, and relish the opportunity to learn about each client’s business in order to help them develop a strategy that will address their unique set of circumstances.”
