We pride ourselves on establishing connections and building relationships with our clients. Regardless of the size or scope of your case, once on board, we will work tirelessly, making sure we are prepared, making sure you are informed, and making sure we are communicating and engaged throughout the process. We pride ourselves on providing the level of knowledge and effectiveness found in larger firms in a comfortable, spacious, easy to find location, near the homes and communities of our clients. We are able to offer personal attention to each of our clients, giving the most detailed, thorough, and effective representation available.

We recognize that any legal issue or situation can be complicated, overwhelming and frightening. We promise we will earn your trust, and that you can breathe easier as we work towards the end together. We invite you to explore our site to get more details about our practice areas and philosophy. You are also welcome to give us a call if you have particular questions about our services or if you desire to schedule a consultation.

We accept cases in many districts in North Carolina; however, our “home” district is the 11th Judicial District, which includes Johnston County, and our hometown of Smithfield.
