About

Dr. James C. Carver, Ph.D., J.D.

Dr. Carver established The Carver Law Firm to provide timely, high quality legal services to his clients.

Jim has practiced law for over a quarter of a century. Prior to establishing The Carver Law Firm, Jim was the managing partner of the Oats & Hudson Baton Rouge Office, and prior to that he was a partner at Taylor, Porter, Brooks & Phillips. Before pursing his career in law, Jim was a practicing chemist.
