Carl is an outstanding lawyer with whom I have worked on several large cases. He is very smart and diligent. He also demonstrates excellent judgment, which is critical for a litigator. He has the client's well-deserved trust, and is respected by opposing counsel. On a personal level, Carl is an open and friendly person with whom it's a pleasure to spend time. I'm very grateful that our professional paths crossed.
