Enthusiastic, innovative, and dedicated are words that sum up our latest successful NSU Legal Incubator candidate. In less than one month, Devika L. Carr completed the incubator training, incorporated her firm, and accepted both pro bono and fee paying clients into her practice.

Devika will primarily practice in the following legal areas: criminal defense, family law, and civil matters specific to the needs of United States veterans. Her specialty will focus on providing legal services to individuals facing immigration consequences as a result of criminal prosecution. A former Broward County Assistant Public Defender, Devika is a great fit for the NSU Legal Incubator because she recognizes the need to provide legal services for underserved members of the community including United States veterans.
