Testimonials

She was tough when it came to the outcome and getting results. Who can I go to? Who can I turn to? You can go to any attorney and get them to represent you. But, who can get your message out? Who can express and get your point across--the seriousness of this issue? She will get the job done and she will stand for us.

As a Small Business Owner I needed help in a legal matter and decided to call Carol Chumney. Reason being I knew I could trust and count on her for guidance and support with this case. She was kind enough to take the time to help and support me with this matter. The main reason I called her, I knew that she would get all the facts and take the time to explain the legal terms, and give me my options. She made me feel comfortable about the case, stayed in touch with me, and was very professional and respected me as a person. The case went to court and she won the case. I am so grateful to her for all her hard work, support and guidance working the case and winning.

When I came to Carol with my case, I knew I was dealing with a system that was frought with injustice and riddled with corruption. Carol never gave me false hope, but took the facts of my case, and studied the details. I was blown away by her fierce, dead reckoning to get to the truth, to force my opponents to admit their wrong doing. It was a brutal fight and Carol handled it with grace and precision. It was sweet revenge when she won my case and cleared my name. The power and brilliance that she brings to the table is impressive! She comes prepared and does not back down. I feel safe knowing I've got a cracker-jack, top-notch lawyer who I can count on.

My son and I will always be grateful for the diligence and competence Carol showed in litigating our case. She kept us informed, especially on aspects of the case we didn't understand. Carol is well known for advocating for young people. My granddaughter is back home because Carol fought fervently on her behalf. Thank God she was on our side.

Back in the early nineties, you helped me get child support from my deadbeat ex-husband. It never mattered what you were doing or where he was hiding. Every time I called you I would soon have child support plus back support! For that Carol I thank you!!! As bad as the child support system is in Shelby County, someone there sat up and took notice when you fought for me and my kids!
Barbara Broome
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without you, I wouldn't have gotten to see my son. You fought hard for me! Thank you for being there in my tough time and thank you for the work you do for the court systems and the people of Memphis!
