A Resource for Clients

We understand that clients do not hire outside counsel for problems they can solve themselves. When possible, we assist clients in resolving disputes without litigation in the most sensible and cost-effective manner. When litigation cannot be avoided, we’re ready. We have broad experience in all North Carolina state and federal courts, state and federal appellate courts, the North Carolina Business Court, the Office of Administrative Hearings, state agencies, all forms of alternative dispute resolution, and even military tribunals. Our attorneys have been recognized for their work and service by receiving awards such as Best Lawyers in America, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite and North Carolina Super Lawyers.

A Resource for Other Attorneys

Large law firms or small specialty firms often need to refer their good clients to other lawyers when they cannot represent them in a particular matter. We appreciate the opportunity to assist in such cases when they are in our areas of expertise and to draw on the experience of our colleagues in other firms when it makes good business sense for our clients.

A Resource for the Community

Public service is one of the cornerstones of our law firm. Our attorneys have been recognized by the North Carolina Bar Association and several community organizations for their pro bono service and community involvement, including the N.C. Bar Association William L. Thorp Award for Pro Bono Service, presented annually to North Carolina’s Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year. We serve on boards of directors of several charitable and service organizations, coach youth sports, and work hard to make Raleigh and North Carolina a better place for all of its people.
