Areas of Practice

We can help you. Our firm has focused on civil litigation and trial work for decades, and we have represented clients throughout North Carolina in both state and federal courts. Our tradition is that of service to our clients through the delivery of top quality legal services at reasonable rates.

We understand that your matter is not an intellectual exercise: it is a real problem requiring effective solutions. Trying cases to a conclusion before judges and juries, providing advice to avoid legal problems, and effecting out of court resolutions of cases before and after suit is filed — these are the things we do best.

Service to Individuals and Businesses

Our firm represents clients in civil litigation matters throughout North Carolina in all the state and federal courts, including personal injury cases, commercial and business dispute cases, construction dispute cases, collection cases, employment cases, estate dispute cases, workers compensation cases, and professional negligence cases.

Our firm is hired by insurance companies to defend insureds in all the judicial districts of the state, from the coast to the mountains.

In addition to our civil litigation practice, our firm advises clients on business and employment matters and insurance coverage issues. We review and draft contracts, and we advise and help business owners with legal incorporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships. We also help individuals with estate planning and estate administration, and we represent clients in criminal and traffic matters.

Service to Attorneys

Firm principal David O. Lewis is certified as a mediator by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission. Because of his experience over three decades in representing parties in civil court, and in trying hundreds of cases to a conclusion, lawyers across North Carolina designate him to help resolve cases through Superior Court Mediated Settlement Conferences. Attorneys across North Carolina also call on him to serve as an arbitrator in personal injury, estate, and business cases.

Our firm's seasoned trial lawyers are available for association with other attorneys. We are regularly consulted on litigation matters, including case evaluation and strategy formation.
