As in house counsel I depend on the skills and capabilities of those attorneys that I hire to effectively represent my company. For the past 17 years, Mr. Carrouth has done just that in various forums and on a myriad of issues. He is one of my "go to" attorneys for labor, employment, personnel issues.
