Community Involvement

Mitzi Sommer Carr has served on the Board of Directors for the Florida Justice Association and on the Board of Directors for the Central Florida Trial Lawyers Association.  On a state level, the Florida Justice Association works tirelessly for the rights of the injured and downtrodden and works to preserve the adversary trial system. The Florida Justice Association is "dedicated to strengthening and upholding Florida's civil justice system and protecting the rights of Florida's citizens and consumers. We passionately believe that all Floridians benefit when deserving individuals have a fair chance to seek justice in our state's courts and that Florida's consumers are made safer when large corporations and industries are held to a high ethical standard and accept fair responsibility for their actions."

Mitzi Sommer Carr has served on the Board of Directors for the Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida and served as  Fundraising Chair. The Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida is a non-profit corporation comprised of local attorneys, judges, law clerks and law school students “who advocate for the rights of the Hispanic community and help Hispanics learn and understand their legal rights and gain greater access to the courts and the legal system.”

The Carr Law Firm believes in giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate through its involvement in and support of organizations such as The Coalition for the Homeless, The Second Harvest Food Banks, and others.

We are also compassionate towards animals that do not have a voice. We help protect animal welfare rights through our work with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
