Flynn Carey Attorney • Mitchell Stein Carey • Practice areas: Criminal defense, administrative law, school discipline, Title IX litigation Background: Carey defends clients throughout Arizona in violent crime and vehicular prosecutions, advocates for professionals in licensing investigations and in board proceedings, and assists companies and governmental entities in conducting internal investigations and litigating white collar and fraud cases. Trend to watch: “Advances in technology will result in more potential clients — especially those who are not regular consumers of legal services — to rely on technology and Internetdriven tools to identify and select attorneys. Wordof-mouth and traditional marketing is an important part of a practitioner’s marketing strategy and can result in more personalized matches. Technology, such as bidding for services in the market, will present challenges to more traditional modes of advertising.” Source of pride: “My biggest point of pride is any opportunity I get to advocate for a client and ensure that he or she is given the full due process of the law. I am humbled each time a client chooses me as his or her advocate.”
