Clients Success Stories and Case Results

  • Ms. Carroll, than you for all you have done for my daughter and for helping us weave the way through Social Security. We are grateful for everything you have done.

  • I want to thank Ms. Carroll for her hard work on my case and a special thank you for her patience and kindness toward me. I was very scared to go through this process, but she made me feel at ease and guided me through the process.

  • The resources Ms. Carroll provides are an integral part of the success of young adults as they transition to the next step in their lives. Her in-depth knowledge and insight are incredible assets in assisting families who are investigating the best options for their young person.

  • I highly recommend Ms. Dana Carroll, an Atlanta area attorney specializing in serving adults and children with cognitive disabilities.  She recently helped my adult son with autism work through the SSI appeals process, receiving a favorable decision on his behalf. She has been responsive, knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough in guiding my son and I through this process. Ms. Carroll maintains the highest level of honesty and integrity in her dealings with others.

  • A credit to her profession. I found Ms Carroll to be above and beyond my previous experiences with this profession She has the human touch to go along with her razor insight of law and procedures. She balances professionalism and humanism expertly. I was very impressed each time I conferred with her both over the phone and in person. We have hired her for additional projects and will continue to go to her should we need legal assistance. I highly recommend her to anyone needing or considering legal representation. My husband is a CEO with a fleet of lawyers at his disposal. He too was impressed with her skill and manner.

  • Impressive Experience. Ms. Carroll is highly personable and compassionately professional. I felt confident she would do a thorough job and that she had thought of every possible contingency. She was detailed without being redundant as she “road mapped” each step of the process and possible “side roads” . I felt I really could call her at any time with any question, and I did! We were dealing with an emotional situation and there were circumstances that were constantly changing. Ms. Carroll handled them all with aplomb.
    I highly recommend her and plan to utilize her skills should I require an attorney with her specific expertise in the future.
