Attorney-At-Law and Municipal Judge
Michael Carter has lived in St Charles county Missouri since 1994. However, he was born in North St. Louis County and primarily grew up near North Hanley and 270 in a highly integrated apartment complex by the name of Morningside Apartments. In the 9th grade his family moved off of Howdershell/McDonnell Blvd. while Carter attended Hazelwood West.
Immediately out of high school Mike started work in the family real estate business. After 5+ years in the trade (he is still a broker) Carter decided to complete his college education and pursue political science, philosophy, journalism, law, and marketing. During this educational trek Carter drove for UPS, bartended at Applebee's and worked for years as a graduate teaching assistant. (he continued to teach under/graduate marketing at Mizzou and UMSL for ~14 years)
Ultimately, Mike obtained his bachelors in philosophy/poli-sci, juris doctorate, and masters of journalism from UMSL and MIZZOU. After graduating Michael went to work for Fleishman Hillard in the Public Affairs department. However, with enough business coming in from family and friends, he started his law Firm — Carter Law Offices, LLC in St. Charles and St. Louis, MO. (handling real estate, criminal, and corporate law)
Michael is the municipal judge of Wentzville, president of Carter Law Offices, broker of Homes USA, and general counsel for Car Shield. Carter also worked for the Missouri Attorney General's Office in Consumer Protection, clerked for Missouri's Western District Court of Appeals, and is past Director of the St Louis Association of Realtors.
In his many years as Wentzville's municipal judge, Carter was ahead of the curve in implementing sweeping changes to Wentzville's court before the advent of statewide senate bills 5 and 572 which ultimately brought the state's municipal courts in line with Carter's municipal court efforts. Area circuit judges have commended Judge Carter for his forward-looking efforts and wrote letters of accolades to his city aldermen and mayor to express such.
Carter also worked for years to help successfully ban red-light cameras in St. Charles County thereby severely impacting their use statewide as well.
