While our trial lawyers are not afraid to take a case to trial, it is often in the best interests of all involved to negotiate a settlement. Our attorneys in Charlotte will apply their expertise and common sense to your individual situation. From the initial client interview, whether your issue is a business dispute, insurance coverage issue or personal injury, our lawyers prepare to litigate the matter as a well prepared case. We work with the country’s premier experts to assist with presentation of your case. At the same time we will be exploring opportunities to negotiate a settlement on your behalf.

General/Civil Litigation
If you’ve been sued or need to sue, adhering to deadlines will be a key factor in your success. Be sure to contact an attorney immediately in order to avoid penalties and the risk of defaulting. Our lawyers will ensure that deadlines and all requirements are met, and we will take cases that other attorneys decline. If we can’t help you, we will find someone who can.
Business Litigation
Resolving disputes is our expertise. Our team includes an attorney who teaches business negotiation to MBA students, and we are committed to avoiding lawsuits whenever possible. We believe that pursuing negotiation and mediation before litigation is the best course of action.
Contract Disputes
Broken promises can lead to financial difficulties and emotional strain. We provide expert counsel in such cases, offering clients sound advice during stressful and complex disputes. We guide clients to wise, common-sense decisions in the face of challenging circumstances.
Professional Liability
Our goal is to settle without going to court. We achieve this by going the extra mile when preparing for trials—we leave no stone unturned. This gives clients the best chance to settle before litigation. Should a case proceed to trial, clients receive the vigorous representation we are known for.
Conflict Resolution
Our team includes a certified mediator, and our lawyers believe their primary duty is negotiation rather than confrontation. We get to know our clients and the details of their situations, which helps us negotiate from a position of strength and ensures a best possible outcome.
Mediation and Arbitration
When two sides can’t settle, mediation and arbitration offer more efficient, more economical, and less risky options than going to trial. Our philosophy is, if you can mediate or arbitrate a case, do so.
Real Estate/Construction Litigation
When the concerns you wanted to prevent at closing weren’t prevented, you need expert attorneys who will examine every detail of your case with due diligence. We have nearly five decades of experience helping clients resolve challenges of title, partitions, cases of misrepresentation, and other real estate disputes.
Eminent Domain/Condemnation
You must fight to preserve your rights in many eminent domain cases, and we are committed to making sure you have vigorous representation when taking on the government. Condemnation cases also require strong representation. We will ensure that you know your rights and your options, allowing you to make sound decisions about how best to proceed.
