A Chapel Hill, North Carolina consumer protection attorney

Making a difference for more than 30 years

It may seem as though it's all your fault, that you could have done something to avoid an injury or emotional distress. If a lawyer doesn't act on your behalf, you may believe it's because you could have prevented it. You might blame yourself for not fully researching a defective product that caused severe damage to you or a loved one.

Stop blaming yourself. For more than 30 years, I've seen cases similar to yours happen across central North Carolina. As a consumer, it's fair to assume manufacturers and professionals are following the lawful standards. 

Despite consumer protection laws, some companies and individuals take the easiest, which is not always the correct, responsible path.

There are consequences you are forced to pay for someone else’s actions. If you lose control of your vehicle and crash on I-40, you expect the airbag to properly deploy and protect you from extensive injury. 

The products North Carolinians depend upon in a car or truck crash don’t always do their jobs because of a corporation’s willingness to cut corners. 

People, each day, are put in harm’s way due to a manufacturer’s need to protect its bottom line. I have built my law firm on the idea that people should not be casualties during the pursuit of financial gain. 

It’s time you sought justified reparations for your debilitation or loss. Let me help you recover.
