The firm today represents over 80 years of providing legal services to people in Onslow and surrounding counties. Located near Camp Lejeune, a United States military base, we are well-versed in the unique aspects of legal representation of military personnel in divorce and child custody. We also have become well-versed in actions against the federal government because of military motor vehicle accidents and medical malpractice at the military hospital.

We can answer any questions regarding what to expect and how the military issues affect the proceedings. TRAFFIC CASES AND CRIMINAL LAW: Attorneys of the firm are regularly involved in representing persons charged with DWI, Speeding and other traffic offenses as well as serious misdemeanors and felonies. Conviction of a traffic offense can cause both points on your driving license and an increase in your insurance rates. We can frequently obtain results in these cases which prevent or minimize increased insurance rates and driver’s license points which can result in a loss of your driving privilege. PERSONAL INJURY: A significant portion of the services provided by our firm is the representation of persons who have been injured, or representation of the estate of persons who have been killed in automobile accidents, tractor trailer collisions, airplane crashes, commercial accidents or any other negligent means.

Insurance adjusters are trained and expected to settle cases at a minimum cost to the insurance company which employs them. We are available to discuss your legal rights with you. There is no fee for the first conference. You may have insurance of your own available to cover your hospital and doctor's charges. This insurance may be available under more than one policy and may include both your health insurance and your own automobile insurance. We will help you to collect these benefits without any fee for this part of our assistance. Our employment in personal injury and wrongful death cases is on a contingent fee contract under which we receive a percentage of the recovery at the time your case is settled or resolved. If you do not recover in the case, you owe no fee to our firm. The attorneys in our office have many years of experience in representing the injured against insurance companies. In our office every negotiation with an insurance company concerning the value and settlement of your case is handled directly by an attorney.
