Our Successes

$2M Premises Liability Settlement

An apartment complex did not properly secure its pool. While a mother was napping, her toddler followed his older brother out the front door. He eventually made his way to the pool, which had an inadequate and poorly secured gate. The toddler fell into the pool and nearly drowned, but he was thankfully saved and resuscitated by a neighbor. Our firm was able to ensure the property owner paid this amount even before filing a lawsuit. We are also happy to report the toddler is now on his way to making a full recovery.

$1.95M Wrongful Death Settlement

A sheriff’s department helicopter crashed into our client’s apartment home, immediately killing her. Our client was an elderly unmarried woman with no children, spouse, or living parents. Although this was a state-owned helicopter and there were sovereign immunity monetary caps of $200K, we were still able to secure a recovery that far exceeded what the defense or the state believed they should have had to pay.

$810K Scooter Accident Settlement

Our client was riding a scooter upon leaving from work when he was ran off the road by a commercial truck making an improper right turn. He ended up crashing his scooter and fracturing his tibia. He had to undergo two surgeries, extensive rehab, and suffered significant emotional distress throughout his recovery process. After the accident, the insurance company initially only offered $350,000.00. Through our research, investigation, and presentation of the facts, we were still able to reach an agreeable settlement for our client without having to file a lawsuit.

$250K Pedestrian Accident Settlement

Our client was an elderly homeless woman. She was crossing the street and hit by a city employee, resulting in a broken wrist. She ended up requiring multiple surgeries and permanent damage. The City initially refused to provide any compensation whatsoever before our firm filed a lawsuit. They stated our client was contributorily negligent because she was not walking in a crosswalk. Through hard-fought litigation, though, we were able to receive a just result for our client.

...I always had a special connection to Charlotte...

My family is full of people who have served our community, whether that be through the military, civil rights, church, you name it. I’ve always felt service was engrained in my identity, and that pushed me to serve my country. Upon returning, though, I always felt a special connection to Charlotte and knew there would be a time for me to go back. Having my own law firm gives me the ability to represent everyday people against powerful corporations and government entities that usually don’t have a client's best interest in mind; and I get to do this on my terms through the ideals I value: embodying excellence in service, tirelessly fighting for justice, and winning the day, every day for my clients.

The statute of limitations sets a strict court-enforced time limit on the plaintiff’s amount of time to commence the legal action. While there are varying timelines, under North Carolina General Statutes section § 1-52, the statute for most personal injury claims is three years from the date of the cause of action. The regulation does not apply to car insurance claims and settlements. After a crash, insurance companies require prompt notification and begin the claim immediately.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation does not yet record any data or statistics regarding exactly how many accidents involving rideshare vehicles occur each year.
