When an ordinary family faces extraordinary circumstances, you need to feel that you are in good hands. Mr. Floyd’s support, patience and strength were evident throughout the 2 years that he had my case as he negotiated with the A.D.A. on my behalf. His true word was “We don’t go to court if we don’t have to, but I will defend you from my heart if we have to.” His style, approach and execution are second to none. Chris is by far the best man you will need to defend you in the State and federal court system, civil or criminal. He handled my case very efficiently and got the job done. I will recommend Mr. Floyd for any issue you have; he is a man of his word and a great man overall! -JM

This was the best experience my husband and I had in dealing with Chris and this law firm. Very professional, pleasant and thorough. Chris did exactly what he said he would do in getting back with us the same day we contacted him. Gave my husband the upmost respect and was straight forward in his suggestion. in moving forward. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone for any legal issues.

Mr Floyd got both of my cases dismissed in a timely manner. Thanks a lot I definitely would recommend his services

This lawyer knows how to get the best possible outcome for his clients. He is responsive, intelligent, persistent and the guy you want on your side. Chris Floyd is the only lawyer I would trust if my life was on the line. I highly recommend.

Chris did a great job handling my Reckless Driving ticket. I was pulled over by several police officers that accused me of racing another vehicle and issued me a citation. I spoke to Chris over the phone who offered to reach out directly to the officer that issued the ticket. After several months of back and forth, the ticket was dismissed in court. Additionally, he is working on getting the citation expunged from my record!

Positive: Professionalism I just wanted to thank Attorney Phylicia Powers for all of your excellence and hard work toward my criminal case. Me and my family truly appreciated everything you have done for me. This criminal case has been a life changing event and it would have been different if we wouldn't have found you. You’ve given me my life back and I can't thank you enough for fighting for me. God bless you, you are truly a outstanding attorney.

I highly recommend Roberts Law Group. I received a notice recently about a case that Roberts Law Group assisted me with over a decade ago. When I called, I was warmly greeted by the same paralegal that I had worked with in the past. Not only did she remember me, but she remembered my case and within minutes was forwarding me the documents I needed. They truly are the best in the business.

I don't even know where to begin. Between Michelle and Sabina I couldn't have asked for anything better! I had a very simple case but due to a recent move was unable to attend the hearing. They kept me informed and confident and everything Michelle said she would do, she absolutely did! Everything was handled beyond my expectations and all at a very fair and reasonable cost! Thank you Roberts law group and a special thank you to Michelle and Sabina for everything you've done for me!!

The Roberts Law Group was great and help deal with my daughters charges. Attorney Powers was always available when we had question on the phone and in person. She and her colleagues where very helpful and help resolve my daughter charges to an outcome she was happy with. I highly recommend Attorney Powers.

Patrick took on a lengthy and complex case and met it head on, listening to his client and responding to his requests with specialized expertise and utmost professionalism. Sabina was fantastic in keeping the family informed of the legal proceedings and resolving an important legal issue. Excellent, high quality legal services.

Brad Polk is the guy to go when you need of help like Foreal !!! He’s been helping me since 2016 on my first ticket , one of my best friends recommended me to Polk and Thank God I did make that call !! Straight to the point no Beating around the bush like others do !! If he says he gotchu best believe he gotchu !! Hasn’t failed me !! Aways in touch with updates if it’s not him you talking to then His assistants are and they are dope as well and kind friendly!! To much to say but to get to the point of the this If you need help with troubles in need of legal assistance Hit up Brad Polk hands down in the wake County District and if he can’t help he will surly direct you to a place who will

Raymond is a superb lawyer. He keeps on top of things in a way that made me feel reassured that he cared about not just the case but how I was handling the stress of it. Very professional while still being personable, would highly recommend.

Great lawyers to have on your side. Brad is very nice and is very efficient. If I call him, he calls me right back as soon as he can and will make time for me when I need him. He is a very busy man, so when he does this, he shows me he really cares.

My family hired Brad Polk to represent me in a probation violation case from out of state. Brad was a terrific lawyer. He was responsive to my family’s phone calls and gave them updates about me. He also was very well prepared for court. He listened to me and asked lots of questions. I swear I could see him thinking and putting things together as I spoke. My case was dismissed and I went home. Brad and his team followed up with me days later. It was a great experience. I got into this mess because other lawyers didn’t want to take time to defend me they only spoke about deals, and took my money. Brad wasn’t like that. I should have hired him from the beginning, Lord only knows I lost and spent much more money taking a deal than I did hiring a good competent lawyer.

Raymond Tarlton is an amazing attorney. He was professional and very accommodating. I was always able to reach him for any questions I had, unlike other attorneys who take days to respond. He’s confident in his knowledge of the law, not to mention he won us the case! I can’t thank him enough and would easily recommend him to anyone with a legal matter. Thanks again Raymond!

Seth and team worked consistently for three years on my case. At every court appearance, Seth was fully prepared and guided the process with my best interests in mind. After a successful Not Guilty verdict, I can't thank them enough. This is a great firm with a highly qualified and professional staff. Thank you Kurtz and Blum!

Mr. Colby Berry is such a GREAT lawyer I highly recommend. He has always been informative ,responds quickly, shows up in court appearances on time and gives you the best advice. Mr. Berry has helped me many times and I've always been satisfied with my outcome. Contact him if you're looking for a helpful lawyer. Thank me later :)

Emailed this firm with some questions before hiring them. The office manager, Susan Iheanachor, told me she could not advise (not being an attorney) but told me "When you get some time, please give our office a call and we can have an attorney speak with you." I would have thought the correct move would be to pass my email to an attorney who could provide answers, but apparently that was too much trouble for her. There are too many law firms who are professional and responsive, no need to waste time with this poorly-run outfit. EDIT: Response to Kurtz & Blum (no Reply button?) I did not ask legal questions, and thus did not need to speak to an attorney. I Inquired about a simple process that required one filing and one court appearance. I've been too busy to do this myself, so wanted to get a ballpark figure of fees and a rough timeframe to complete from a pro. None of these actions require cracking a law book. If your office manager cannot provide rough costs and timeline for a simple service before speaking to an attorney about the specifics, then no, I won't be doing business with you. And I would advise others not to as well. PS: I don't understand your position. Why would you want to spend an attorney's valuable time speaking with someone who may not be able to afford the service? Letting the prospective client have an idea about approximate fees & time before speaking to an attorney seems like a good thing.

Helped me with all the legal questions I had Great lawyers

Seth Blum is a fair, reasonable, excellent lawyer that I would recommend to everyone I know. I would like to thank the law offices of Kurtz & Blum for handling my case. Seth, being a partner of the firm (KurtzandBlum.com), is straightforward, professional and tells you exactly how it is and is extremely receptive to any questions you may have. Do yourself a favor and hire the law offices of Kurtz and Blum. Extremely satisfied customer, Paul...

I recently utilized The Chetson Firm to assist in a court case and was very pleased with the outcome. Damon is the real deal and works tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome. His efforts in the courtroom combined with the attention to detail and dedication from his paralegal made the entire process as stress free as it possibly could be. Amazing team at Chetson Law Firm!

Damon helped in a very sensitive situation with a VERY mentally ill family member. I was 3,000 miles away and felt helpless until I retained his services. He is very to the point, upfront and honest. I am very pleased with the outcome of my situation and would recommend him to anyone in the area.

Mr.Chetson and his firm are amazing. This was my first time ever having a charge against me. He helped get me off that charge. They are very professional, honest, and straight to the point. I highly recommend Mr.Chetson to be your Lawyer. He’s great ????

Much gratitude for the persistence and leadership demonstrated for this drawn out but vital conclusion. Highly recommend !

We had talked to four attorneys overall but Coolidge emerge out as the best bidder among all of them. David in Coolidge law firm was an amazing lawyer who listened out all our speeding ticket related queries and able to work within our budget. He was immensely familiar with this legal case and resolved it in a very short duration. And you know what, we won at last. Really can’t thank him enough whole heartedly

Extremely fortunate and content with the work Mr. Coolidge did for me. Got my charged dismissed in court and prevented me from being suspended at NC state. Great guy. Couldn't recommend him enough!

According to my opinion, David is one of the best and most knowledgeable DWI attorneys in my knowledge. The way he fights against DWI charges was literally commendable. Highly thankful to him and for his appreciable dedication towards the clients.

David and his staff were excellent to work with l. They always displayed a high degree of legal expertise by answering any questions or concerns I had throughout the process. He worked diligently to get my case dismissed. I highly recommend his legal services. The best lawyer in Raleigh hands down David got all of my charges dismissed one for DWI, Speeding, and Possession of Firearm. I now suggest him to everyone,and also plan on using him in the future for a personal matter. Thanks David!

Thanks a ton to the lawyers of Coolidge law firm!! Last year, it was really an awful situation for me when I got arrested for narcotic charges. Contact of David given by one of the colleague of mine. I talked to him immediately without wasting any time. He successfully led to the judgement in my favour. Extremely proficient and surely, I would highly recommend his business to everyone who wants legal support.

    We had talked to four attorneys overall but Coolidge emerge out as the best bidder among all of them. David in Coolidge law firm was an amazing lawyer who listened out all our speeding ticket related queries and able to work within our budget. He was immensely familiar with this legal case and resolved it in a very short duration. And you know what, we won at last. Really can’t thank him enough whole heartedly

I had a consult with Michelle Sparrow. She shared damaging information with another party about me, before even speaking with me. When I addressed it she obfuscated and degraded me. I understand there are ethics regarding confidentiality even during consultations. Her paralegals told me she would take this case and then quoted me fees for already resolved cases. She refused to call me about it. But when another party called her, who she thought would pay, she spoke liberally to them, but not before speaking with me. She violated my confidentiality. She denied we had confidentiality. What trust can we have in our consults then? Speaking with her about it showed me the viciousness of this lawyer which may serve her well in the courtroom. She said she was not yet hired and we had no "agreement" yet every time she staggered, carefully to deliberately avoid saying the word "confidentiality". Are ethics, then a choice? This made it obvious she knew what she did. Confidentiality must be in place if we are to trust. I wonder about the NC ethics of lawyers. I have been told by other lawyers my consult is completely confidential. But Michelle Sparrow hold herself outside of that, sadly. Sent from ProtonMail mobile

I got a recommendation to use Sparrow Law Firm from a friend and contacted them a month before my court case. Michelle and her team did a great job by showing up to court and essentially getting me the best results I could have asked for (including no points) on my license for a pretty bad traffic ticket. I will and have already recommended their services to somebody that got a traffic ticket. Its a little expensive but definitely worth the money as you save money on your insurance.

Michelle and her team were excellent in assisting in appearing in court and addressing a traffic violation on my behalf. The firm kept me updated and provided excellent communication even when the court date had to be changed. The firm was part of my legal plan and made the entire process simple. I recommend the Sparrow Firm.

Excellent communication with me and great results. They are professional and respectful. I would recommend to all my friends.

I contacted Sparrow Law Firm about a traffic ticket that I had incurred almost last minute and I spoke with Michelle Sparrow, who ran me through the possible implications of the citation and we didn’t discuss much but she told me she would do her best about it and asked me for a few supporting documents, which I passed along at my earliest convenience. I didn’t think much about our conversation but when my court date came about, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome and I am only praise for her work. She has my faith and I would definitely go back to her if I needed help with anything legal again.

Bill Finn is hands down the best lawyer in Raleigh. Very professional, courteous, & knowledgeable. Also clearly widely respected by judges & lawyers. I would highly recommend Bill Finn for any legal woes you may come across.

Mr. Fitzhugh is amazing. When you search for an attorney you want someone who is knowledgeable, well spoken, well known and respected. But you have to be able to connect with them as well. Mr.Fitzhugh is relatable, forthright and honest. Also, just as importantly, Ms.Ford in the office is just as amazing.

Andy and his team are beyond helpful. They truly overdelivered, and in the most professional of ways. I highly recommend!

They were extremely fast and responsive with my case. Trey Fitzhugh was my attorney and he is the best in Wake County. He handled my case extremely fast and I could not be happier with the results.

Working with Sandman, Finn & Fitzhugh has taken all of the stress out of getting a ticket. Bill Finn always answered my emails quickly and simplified all the confusing law jargon. They made sure I understood everything that as happening and went above and beyond to to make me feel supported and defended. I highly recommend this firm to anyone looking for a lawyer!

Mr. Brinkley was the best lawyer I could ask for. Received 6 drug related felonies resulting from a setup of a controlled buy by an informant which was recorded on camera. I was expecting the worst outcome. Mr. Brinkley was very knowledgeable on the matter, and we met numerous times to listen to me and review over my case to fight the charges. He pushed with the DA many times to get the best possible deal, probation with felony discharge, which I did not think was possible. He was able to keep the case from going to jury, and was able to get the DA to accept the deal. After completion, he was able to expunge all my charges including previous charges from years ago on an unrelated case. Highly recommend Mr. Brinkley, he took time to consult me on my case during the process of turning myself in, before I had taken him on as my lawyer. I think he went above and beyond what most lawyers would have done, which I am extremely thankful for

Mr. Brinkley handled every aspect of my case and was great to work with. He was able to quickly get my misdemeanor dismissed before my court date. I believe his experience as a former assistant DA helped significantly with this. His fee very reasonable compared to other lawyers I consulted and included the expungement, which is getting processed right away.

Firstly, Mr. Brinkley was fair with me on pricing, I was going through a tough time and he accommodated me for whatever I could afford at the time. Whenever I called the Law office I was always gotten back to promptly. Mr. Brinkley represented me in a misdemeanor case, and he continued to show up to court even though it was continually being pushed back for various reasons. Through his diligence and legal direction I was able to get my case dismissed. I would highly recommend him!

I had a great experience with Mr. Brinkley. He was very responsive throughout my case and kept me well informed. The case wrapped up a lot sooner than I thought it would. I hope to not need legal assistance in the future, but if I do, I would hire Mr. Brinkley again. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a lawyer for representation.

I highly recommend retaining Mr. Brinkley for your legal matters. Mr. Brinkley is an extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and experienced attorney, who promptly resolved and processed an expungement for me.

I came about Rusty Dement from my good friend , who handled my cases , Rick Gammon. As Mr. Gammon is ‘ retired’ to only focus on very big single cases , I respect him and the whole team of litigators. In my time of need, it’s not about emotions in my case, but facts. As I was told “ education will set you free” , my education has led me to Russel Dement III.

Been using Rusty for twelve years now and has always been a positive outcome. Thank you again!!

Jim Johnson represented me in a dog bite case. He went above and beyond in working with me, bringing my case to a conclusion that exceeded my expectations. He also supported my desire to help stop others from being attacked by the dog. He was unfailingly kind and extremely professional. I strongly recommend Jim and would definitely hire him again if needed.

Rusty was a tremendous help. He never gave up his determination to give me a favorable outcome! Wonderful legal staff, especially Freda. Would definitely recommend Rusty as a great legal source. Best, Charlie

I want to thank Mr. Dement for helping me out with my DWI case. I was truly not very optimistic in my chances with my case, but on the day of my trial Mr. Dement vigorously argued in my favor that the officer did not have probable cause for my arrest. Mr. Dement was very detailed in his cross examination of the officer and posed great doubt that he did have probable cause for my arrest. Ultimately Mr. Dement was able to get my DWI charge dropped and I was responsible for his fees and the court costs. I truly appreciate his efforts in saving me from a DWI conviction and everything unfortunate that goes along with that conviction.
