As a member of a very special profession, Mr. Carroll believes that it is the duty and responsibility of every attorney to acknowledge the special recognition and privilege every person enjoys by being able to say that they are an attorney and counselor at law. As part of that professional obligation an attorney should contribute his time and talents to improve his profession and our system of justice by volunteering with professional, civic and public organizations. The following are examples of the organizations and the leadership roles in which he has served those organizations.
