Prior to joining Bryant & Carson, Attorney Carson worked as an associate at the Law Office of Michael B. Cohen in Altoona, PA. Prior to that, Attorney Carson served as First Assistant District Attorney of Huntingdon County. In that role, he was, at times, called upon to step in and act as District Attorney when the DA was away or unavailable.

Attorney Carson revels in fighting for the little guy. “Clients are not just a number, to me,” Attorney Carson says. “They are real human beings with real human problems. America isn’t just naturally a nation of liberty and freedom—those things are the result of strife and struggle. Unless they are fought for, they are lost. The only thing stopping the people from being drowned by the torrent of power raining down from governments and corporations is this umbrella called ‘Due Process.’ I’m just a guy holding it up. I used to do it in combat boots; now I do it in a suit and tie.”
