She works as part of a tight-knit team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers, PC, helping clients who were injured in California, Hawaii and Washington.

She and the team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers, PC work to alleviate clients’ stress by taking over all aspects of the case: compiling documents to build a strong case, communicating with insurance companies and medical providers, and prioritizing payment of medical bills. Carmen then pushes to maximize the insurance settlement and negotiate the client’s medical expenses down, to get as much money as possible in the client’s pocket at the end of the case.
