Every year, far too many fatalities and injuries are caused by auto accidents. If you've been injured in an auto accident, or you've suffered the loss of a loved one because of an auto accident, you might be eligible to file a suit for compensation.

If you're one of the 4.7 million Americans who've been bit by a dog this year, you already know it's no joke. Not only are dog bites painful and frightening but they can also be life-threatening. Anyone bit by a dog should always have, at minimum, a blood test to ensure that no contagious disease has been contracted.



If you've been injured in a fall or an accident as a result of someone else's negligence, you are entitled to fair compensation. You shouldn't have to pay for other peoples' mistakes, nor should you have to pay for medical bills or wages lost as a result of your injury. Many establishments and corporations will fight hard to avoid a personal injury lawsuit.

If your family member or loved one has died as a result of negligence, accident or a wrongful act, you may wish to file a wrongful death claim with The Law Office of James D. Carter.

Due to the sensitive nature of a wrongful death claim, you'll want the services of an experienced wrongful death attorney who can devote their full attention to the case with the utmost respect for the circumstances.


 A divorce is a life-altering event. Unlike almost any other legal matter, during a divorce proceeding emotions are heightened and can lead to poor decisions on the part of both parties involved.

This is when the objective views of an attorney can be your best asset.


Premise liability law protects individuals who have been injured in a fall due to the negligence or willful disregard of the property owner where the incident took place.

About The Law Office of James D. Carter

With over 23 years of superior legal experience, James Carter is able to achieve adequate settlements on most cases without putting his clients through the time, expense, and stress of going to trial.

However, when trial is necessary, his purpose and commitment is simple and clear. It is derived from and defined by the Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution: "In suits at common law...the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States."

James dedicates his law practice to the preservation of his clients' fundamental right to have a jury of their peers consider their grievances.






James Carter graduated and received his Bachelor's Degree from Georgia Southern University in 1983. In 1986, he earned his Juris Doctorate from Mercer University. He relocated to Florida in 1987 and married his wife Kumiko, in 1995.

From 1986 through 1987 he worked with the Law Firm of Benton & Boyer, P.A. in Macon, Georgia. That firm specialized in insurance defense. As such, James gained invaluable knowledge and experience pertaining to the proper handling of personal injury claims and civil jury trials at the outset of his legal career.

In 1999, he established the Law Offices of James D. Carter and began to focus even more attention on Personal Injury cases and Family Law.   James has handled thousands of cases throughout his career.  He has made recoveries ranging from a few thousand dollars for clients with minor injuries to over $1million for clients with wrongful death claims.  His competitive spirit and strong desire to help others who are in need combine to make him a powerful advocate for his clientele.

James is currently a member of the Florida and Georgia Bars, the Manatee County Bar Association, the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, the American Bar Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, and the American Judicature Society.
