Alfred Carry is an experienced litigator. He practices at both the trial court and appellate level, and he represents a broad range of businesses and individual clients in complex commercial litigation, internal governance disputes, and real estate matters.
A creative and vigorous advocate, he regularly litigates commercial claims, construction defects, real estate issues, as well as internal governance disputes between shareholders or owners, and actions involving breach of contract, breach of warranty, insurance coverage, fiduciary duties, business torts, losses from injury or property damage, and constitutional and civil rights law claims. In addition, he has experience defending employers facing wage and hour law violations, work-related injury claims, among other labor law compliance issues and employment related matters. Prior to joining Press, Dozier & Hamelburg, Alfred gained extensive trial experience from his work in the Public Defender's Office in Massachusetts. Alfred also brings experience as a former family law practitioner and coverage or defense counsel on behalf of national insurance carriers and their insureds. Because of his diverse legal knowledge and experience, Alfred's practice includes counseling individuals and corporations in areas of liability management to prevent costly litigation. Whenever possible, Alfred will first pursue a non-judicial outcome through mediation; but, when alternative dispute resolution fails, he works tirelessly to deliver argument, whether on paper or in court, that is persuasive and based on sound legal analysis.
He serves on the Criminal Justice Act appellate panel for the D.C. Court of Appeals. A stalwart of social justice, he is also active in nonprofit organizations including D.C. Law Students in Court, one of the oldest and most well-regarded legal programs in the District of Columbia, which works to fight the consequences of poverty, prevent homelessness, and alleviate inequalities in the justice system. He also has pro bono experience in administrative removal proceedings in Immigration Court in Arlington, Virginia, and teaching experience as a trial advocacy coach for local law school moot court trial teams.
