Dear potential client:

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am a North Carolina lawyer with 20+ years of experience in a multitude of areas, including workers’ compensation, personal injury, wrongful death, civil litigation, maritime injuries, Jones Act and Longshoreman claims, and traffic law.  It is my purpose to provide legal services to residents of the Cape Fear region, including but not limited to Bladen, Columbus, Brunswick, New Hanover, Robeson, Scotland, Cumberland, and Sampson Counties, as well as other potential clients in the surrounding areas and throughout North Carolina.  Whether you reside in Elizabethtown, Bladenboro, Clarkton, Dublin, White Lake, Tarheel, White Oak, Lumberton, St. Pauls, Garland, Kelly, East Arcadia, Riegelwood, Whiteville, Harrells, Roseboro, Clinton, Fayetteville, Supply, Shallotte, Wilmington, or any other location near my office in Elizabethtown, I want to be your attorney.

My practice is currently focused on workers’ compensation, personal injury, wrongful death, and maritime injuries.  However, I also enjoy litigation which does not involve injury.  If you happen to have a case which is not in my areas of specialty, I will gladly find another attorney who can handle the matter for you.

I am licensed to practice in all state courts in the State of North Carolina, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina and the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.  I am also a certified Superior Court Mediator, and can perform mediations (also known as Mediated Settlement Conferences) anywhere in the state.

I offer free initial consultations, regardless of the nature of your case.  If your case involves a personal injury, work related injury, maritime injury, or death, I am usually willing to handle it on a contingency basis.  This means that there is no fee unless there is a monetary recovery, and I get paid a percentage of the settlement or judgment.

If I cannot take your case on a contingency basis, I accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, personal checks, and of course, cash.  I want to make it affordable for you to get legal help from a good lawyer.  Please call and make an appointment to see me so we can discuss your legal matter, free of charge.
