CRIMINAL: We strive to minimize the damage that criminal charges cause to our clients' lives. We have cases dismissed whenever possible; we get charges reduced and sentences lightened. We provide criminal defense for felonies and misdemeanors, and crimes that include:
WORKER'S COMPENSATION/PERSONAL INJURY: If you've been seriously hurt, you are probably worried about the medical expenses and lost wages. At our law firm, you will receive a straightforward analysis of your case. The main focus of any injury is treatment and a good medical outcome. The lawyer's role involves the knowledge to find all of the insurance coverage and to maximize monetary recovery for your injuries and expenses. We represent clients in all matters of work-related injuries and personal injury claims, including:
Criminal Defense for College Students Accused of Crimes: College is a time when many young people make mistakes, like underage drinking, drunk driving and doing drugs. Although these mistakes are common among students of this age group, the consequences of these mistakes can be terribly costly for a long time. There are criminal consequences of course, but the school can bring suspensions, expulsions and revocation of important scholarships. With our North Carolina law firm situated right across from the University of North Carolina Greensboro, and close to North Carolina A&T, Greensboro College, and Guilford College, we have handled a wealth of college crimes. If you or your college-aged child has been accused for a crime, we can handle it.
TRAFFIC: In traffic law, more than any other legal practice area, our clients want to say "he handled it" when speaking of their attorney. We usually can take care of traffic matters successfully without the presence of the client in court. From minor traffic violations to helping clients obtain a previously revoked driver's license, we are here to help. Many traffic matters can be reduced to non-moving violations which reduce or eliminate insurance and driver license consequences. We handle a wide range of criminal matters for our clients:
FAMILY LAW: There are many volatile issues that arise in divorce, child custody, and other family law matters. We attempt to reduce the stress associated with these issues and to handle the matter in a way that reflects our client's best interest, whether through a trial, settlement agreement or some other resolution. Some people facing a divorce what that "bulldog attorney" who will do everything possible to make the other spouse's life miserable, regardless of the cost and the results. We are not that kind of law firm. We do our best to resolve matters sensibly and with a minimum of stress and expense. If a trial is warranted, that's what we do; however, the best outcome for all parties in most matters is a negotiated outcome because the client has control, not a Judge. Once the Judge has the matter for consideration, it is the Judge's decision and no longer the client's. If you want results, contact us. We handle family law matters that include:
REAL ESTATE: We represent clients in real estate matters including closings, deed preparation, and other related matters. The firm handles hundreds of real estate closings each year. We are comfortable handling transactions that involved the new TRID regulations. Our focus is on a smooth transaction with minimum input and effort from the client. We are flexible and can change as the needs of the transaction change. Most of our real estate cases come from referrals from banks, Realtors, and former clients who know the quality of our work. We represent clients in real estate matters that include:
WILLS AND ESTATES: In the passing on of wealth, it is important that the documentation is drafted with legal accuracy and that the estate is administered properly. We have more than 20 years of experience handling estate and administrative matters from the preparation of the Will and/or Trust, to the probate and handling of the final estate with the courthouse, including the following:
