Family Law

Divorce, separation and other domestic issues can present some of life’s greatest challenges. These issues can be expensive and emotionally draining for all involved. We can help with issues involving divorce, post separation support, alimony, child custody, child support and equitable distribution (property distribution) in both Dare and Currituck Counties and throughout northeastern North Carolina.

Estate Planning/Administration

Everyone needs to consider end of life issues. If you don’t have a Will or other valid estate planning device in place before death or incapacity, North Carolina law will mandate how your estate will be distributed upon your death. Those laws contained in the North Carolina Intestate Succession Act may lead to serious unintended consequences.

Labor and Employment

If you own a business and have questions about how to properly handle employment matters or if you are an employee with questions about your rights under the federal and state statutes, we can help.

Personal Injury

Eastern North Carolina is no different than other areas of our country. People are often injured through no fault of their own. Some are injured in a car wreck. Some are injured while working. They may suffer terrible injuries and are in constant pain. Their injuries may prohibit them from working or from enjoying their everyday activities. Some may have health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, or some other type of financial assistance that will help them pay medical bills, while others cannot afford to pay a doctor to treat their injuries. Over the years, we have helped people throughout eastern North Carolina receive the medical care they need and recover the income they lost after being injured.

Construction Defects

Our law firm represents property owners, both residential homeowners and commercial business owners, who have discovered substantial deficiencies in work performed by a General Contractor they hired. There are several common issues that typically arise in litigation involving construction defects. The following is a brief summary of certain legal issues that a property owner may face when he or she discovers defects in construction.

Business Formation

Our attorneys can help you launch a new business venture and advise you of all issues to consider at business startup. We will discuss your business plans, explain the various types of business entities and recommend the form of business organization we believe makes the most sense for you.

Traffic Tickets

We routinely help clients charged with minor traffic offenses in Dare County. Merely paying your fine by mail or online without more may result in adverse impacts to your driver’s license status or result in higher auto insurance premiums.

General Practice

Our years of experience have given our firm members broad ranges of experience with most legal issues common on the Outer Banks. We have handled neighbor disputes, landlord-tenant issues, dog-bite (and dangerous dog) cases, and numerous business and other life issues.
