Smith Debnam’s lawyers are skilled litigators. Practicing in all state and federal courts, we bring or defend suits for business clients in many areas of the law, including:
Many business litigation cases settle before suit, often through mediation. Our lawyers are experienced in reaching fair settlements and nailing them down with good documentation. But, when the case calls for court action, our lawyers are proud of the results we achieve for our clients. A sampling of favorable rulings on matters recently handled is set out below.
Our attorneys capitalize on the efficiencies of electronic filing in all three federal jurisdictions within North Carolina, and are often able to instantaneously notify our clients when pleadings, motions and orders are entered.
Our attorneys practice in North Carolina’s District Court and Superior Court, and at the appellate level in both the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court.
They were polite, attentive to what I was saying. And went to long lengths to be helpful.” -Alice M.
