Providing Legal Services Since 1872


The Carr & Carr Law Firm is a general practice firm engaging mainly in the following areas of law:

  •   Personal Injury
  •   Workers' Compensation
  •   Estate Planning and Probate
  •   Real Estate
  •   Criminal, Family and Business Law

The year 2012 marks the firm's 140th year in practice.  Carr & Carr is the oldest continuous bloodline law firm in the State of Iowa.

There are three attorneys at Carr & Carr who are all natives of Manchester and are familiar with the aspects of the community, Delaware County, and the State of Iowa.  The firm was founded in 1872 by E. M. Carr after graduating from the University of Iowa Law school. He was joined in the practice by his son Hubert Carr in 1901 who graduated from Drake Law School in Des Moines.  Hubert's son E. Michael Carr (Mike) is an Iowa Law School graduate who joined the practice in 1964.  Today the practice consists of Mike and his two sons, John, a 1997 Iowa Law School graduate, and Steve who graduated from Drake Law School in 2001.

The practice has been located in the same building in downtown Manchester since 1872. The office has undergone several remodeling projects including a recent new addition overlooking the Maquoketa River.  The office is neatly appointed and fully equipped to meet the needs and comforts of clients.

The law firm has four generations of experience and stands ready to assist clients with their legal affairs.  The lawyers always attempt to respond promptly and cordially to all who seek their counsel.
