Hometown Law Firm - Hometown Service
At the Law Offices of John Drew Warlick, P.A., our lawyers can help protect your interests in a wide range of legal areas.
The Law Offices of John Drew Warlick, P.A. is the oldest law firm in Onslow County which began in the 1930s when I. M. Baily formed a partnership with John D. Warlick, Sr., the father of the present senior partner of the firm. That firm later became Warlick & Ellis when Albert J. Ellis became a partner in 1945. In 1963 John D. Warlick, Jr. became a partner in the firm.The firm today includes Mr. Warlick's son, Robert Warlick, Deke Owens, Jack Swart, Davidson Myers and James Walter Bateman III. 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. AREAS OF PRACTICE:
Dedicated to representing individuals with legal concerns in North Carolina, we offer a wide range of legal services, including:
FAMILY LAW AND DOMESTIC RELATIONS:
Our firm can assist you through all aspects of your family law case. Whether your case involves divorce, child custody, child support, division of marital property or debts, or paternity, we can help you through these difficult issues. Some cases are able to settle prior to Court intervention. We can draft Separation Agreements and Property Settlements to resolve all issues with outgoing to Court. Further, we also represent clients in the enforcement and modification of previous Court orders or judgments regarding child custody, child support and spousal support (alimony). Finally, we have represented a number of service men and women as well as their dependents in family law cases that involve the military. 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. We feel strongly that these people need someone to protect their rights. Insurance companies are not required to advise you of your legal rights. 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. To assist in properly investigating, evaluating, negotiating and trying your case our attorneys utilize the abilities of trained paralegals, economists, vocational rehabilitation experts, life care planners, accident reconstruction engineers, human behavior analysts, structured settlement consultants, expert medical and nursing witnesses and associate counsel. We will discuss all settlement offers with you and make recommendations concerning settlement. However, you will always make the final decision as to whether your case is settled. If your case cannot be settled we have attorneys with the experience and ability to take your case to trial before a jury. No case is too big or too small for our firm. We are here to help you with all your personal injury concerns:
Motor Vehicle Accidents: Our experienced trial lawyers aggressively seek resolution of tough auto accident cases. Vigorous in negotiations and aggressive in trial, we handle car wreck claims involving a wide range of concerns, such as texting, drunk driving accidents, state government vehicles and federal government vehicles. Tractor-trailer accidents: We have won millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients injured in trucking accidents, including logging truck and commercial vehicle accidents. Motorcycle accidents: A serious motorcycle accident injury is often not your fault, but the fault of inattentive drivers. We know how to recover the compensation you deserve. Bike and pedestrian accidents: From broken bones and lacerations to spinal cord injuries and brain trauma, we handle all types of injuries resulting from bike, pedestrian and recreational vehicle accidents. Product liability: If you have been injured after using a dangerous or mislabeled product, we can help you file a claim against the seller or manufacturer. Premises liability: Property owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe premises. Whether you have been injured on public or private property, we can help you get fair compensation. Medical malpractice: We will answer any legal questions you have about medical malpractice, including questions related to birth injuries and defective medical products and pharmaceuticals. COMMERCIAL LITIGATION:
Attorneys in the firm are experienced in representing individuals and businesses in litigation concerning commercial transactions. While most commercial litigation is eventually the subject of a civil action in State Court, our firm also has experience in pursing these matters through arbitration. NURSING HOME AND MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE:
Our firm is available to investigate and, if warranted, to represent persons who have been injured through the negligence of a physician, a nursing home or other healthcare provider. The representation of persons in nursing home and medical malpractice cases is very involved. We have considerable experience in investigating, preparing and resolving claims in these areas. Over the years we have developed a working relationship with a number of expert witnesses who are necessary to prove cases involving nursing home and medical negligence
At the initial conference or soon thereafter a full and frank discussion concerning fees and expenses will be had. Some matters are handled on a lump sum basis, other matters are handled on a per hour basis, and some matters are handled on a fee based on a percentage of your recovery. All of these matters will be fully discussed with you at the beginning of your case. We feel that it is Important that you have a clear understanding of the fee arrangements. CONTACT OUR OFFICE AND STAFF:
