SPRINGFIELD, MO, April 16, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Experienced criminal defense attorney in Springfield, MO, Thomas Carver, has announced the launch of a new legal practice that focuses on criminal defense, Carver & Associates. The law firm will be able to help clients in cases ranging from capital defense to complex white-collar criminal defense, large drug conspiracies, sex crimes, and criminal tax matters involving the IRS and state taxing authorities.
Thomas Carver has been practicing law in the state and federal courts of Missouri for more than 50 years. His portfolio includes representation of over 300 clients in federal cases and thousands of clients in Missouri state courts. He has faced the ultimate challenge in serious and life-changing cases on many occasions, including the representation and trial of individuals accused of capital murder in federal court.
Announcing the launch of their new practice, Thomas Carver, the founding attorney at Carver & Associates, said, "A lot of people who come to see me, symbolically come carrying a big bag of rocks on their shoulder. My job is to take it off their shoulder and to put it on mine. I take great pride in accepting their burden as my own and try as hard as I can to lighten their load. A federal judge once commented to me, when reflecting on why lawyers take on the challenges of criminal defense, that many times a lawyer is the only person between the client and the wolf at the door. It is with that spirit and attitude that I try to serve my clients."
Aside from thousands of state court trials, he has represented litigants in over 70 appeals in state and federal appellate courts and has received the Robert Duncan Award for Appellate Excellence from the Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Other awards include being named to Best Lawyers in America and Missouri Kansas Super Lawyers for at least a decade along with selection as the "Lawyer of the Year" on several different occasions in the area of criminal defense. Recently, he was awarded the Bernard Edelman Tradition Award for Mentoring Young Lawyers.
Perhaps the greatest assurance clients can have when they entrust their fate to Attorney Carver comes from the rating service Martindale-Hubbell which rates lawyers' ethical and legal abilities. Thomas Carver holds the A.V. rating, which is the highest possible rating that indicates the ultimate respect from a lawyer's peers.
Thomas Carver is admitted to practice in all Missouri courts and has been a member of the United States Supreme Court Bar since 1993. He is also a member of the federal bars for the United States Eastern and Western Districts and the United States Eighth and Tenth Circuit Courts of Appeal.
