People Come First

Floyd and Bernard (“Budd”) Sarisohn founded Carner & DeVita nearly half a century ago. Although our firm has grown in size over the years, we take pride in having personal relationships with our clients. Since 1957, we have embraced a simply philosophy…to work for our clients the way we would care for a favorite relative or friend. From accidents to arrests, from divorce to real estate, from negligence to Wills and Estates, when you hire an attorney at our firm, you are hiring our entire team of seasoned professionals.

We are dedicated to responsive service – making certain that we are always fully prepared to meet the needs of each client. In addition, we are committed to working diligently in the best interests of every client we represent. Perhaps that explains why many of our clients have looked to us for legal advice for decades, and have counted on us to be their advocate again and again. After all, in any business, the truest measure of satisfaction is repeat business.

The attorneys at Carner & DeVita, many of whom are recognized leaders in their respective legal fields, have developed well-earned reputations for excellence. Many of our attorneys have held public office, and many have served as judges, assistant district attorneys, special counsels to government agencies, and members of community boards…providing us with a well-rounded perspective of the legal world from many strategic vantage points, thus enhancing our ability to serve our clients.

The attorneys of Carner & DeVita are continually involved in the surrounding communities – both where we live and where our practice is located. Utilizing our knowledge and skills, we energetically strive to make our communities better places to live, work and conduct business.
