The Goza & Carreras Difference

In June 2004, Brian Goza and Kara Carreras decided it was time to build a law firm that focused on the right things. That law firm? Goza & Carreras, Attorneys at Law, PC. That right thing? Focusing on personal service.

Criminal defense work is a personal service business. It is not about the numbers—how many cases, how many wins, etc. Instead, it is about how dedicated we are to our clients. It is about building personal connections and personally investing ourselves in each case. It is about the effort and time we put in to get the best outcome possible.

Don’t get us wrong—winning matters. It is what we strive for every day. But it is not the number of wins that matters. It is how we win and what we win that truly counts.

Meet Our Attorneys

Our experienced legal team includes two criminal defense attorneys. Together, they bring more than 35 years of experience to each case we encounter.

Both lawyers have many years of criminal defense experience and have past prosecutorial experience. This gives us the ability to anticipate the other side’s next steps and potential arguments. And one of our attorneys previously worked as a DNA analyst at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas, Texas. This scientific background has proven invaluable over the years.
