Carrie Parker’s federal and state criminal defense practice is concentrated in defending individuals charged with white-collar offenses, serious drug offenses, and sex offenses. Carrie also handles related civil matters, including government investigations, civil fraud, and asset forfeiture.

Carrie loves criminal defense work for its combination of democratic ideology and practical impact. She enjoys making constitutional arguments with real world effects. And she delights in telling people’s stories—particularly helping her clients convey who they are beyond their charges.

However, any legal matter that requires problem solving or argument-driven prose falls in Carrie’s bailiwick. She represents judges in matters pertaining to the Kansas Code of Judicial Conduct, counsels attorneys in matters pertaining to the Kansas Rules of Professional Conduct, and litigates matters related to contempt and discovery obligations.

Devoting much of her practice to persuasive writing, Carrie has ample experience with district court motion practice and appellate advocacy. Her motions have resulted in the dismissal of unfounded and unconstitutional criminal charges and civil claims, the suppression of illegally obtained evidence, and lesser sentences for her clients. Her appellate briefs have contributed to reversed convictions, vacated sentences, and the preservation of favorable rulings before the Kansas Court of Appeals, the Kansas Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
