Caroline Carter’s inquisitive nature is key to her success as a lawyer. Her drive to seek a deeper understanding is reflected in the broad array of matters she handles, including commercial, construction, insurance, and antitrust disputes. She has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of civil disputes at both the trial and appellate level, and in both state and federal court.

After graduating from Princeton, Caroline ventured across the world to teach math in South Korea and then worked for several years in East Timor and Indonesia for NGOs and the United Nations. Upon returning to the United States, she realized that law was a profession that would embrace her desire to learn and enable her to put what she learns into practice.

Following her graduation with honors from the University of Texas School of Law, Caroline served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ewing Werlein, Jr. of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. She also worked as an Associate at Baker Botts L.L.P. for several years before joining Jordan, Lynch & Cancienne.

Caroline appreciates the collaborative environment at JLC and frequently calls upon the expertise of her fellow attorneys, applying the insights of former medical professionals and engineers to build a trial strategy for her clients. Digging deep for answers and using that knowledge at trial are the skills she values the most.
