These claims can be extremely complicated and often require skilled representation in court.

These cases require an in-depth knowledge of the law and the skill to bring your case in front of a judge. Call our North Carolina lawyers at (919) 701-8132 today.


Fraud is one of the most common claim and occurs when one party intentionally deceives another to gain money, land, or some other advantage. A lawyer experienced in fraud cases can prove how the defendant misrepresented or omitted information and establish the resulting losses you or your business suffered.

In North Carolina, victims of fraud may recover punitive damages in addition to actual losses. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for intentional or reckless misconduct and to deter others from engaging in the same misconduct.

Experience Makes a Difference

In serious or complicated cases, such as land condemnation, where the government seizes your property for public use, our lawyers have extensive experience. Eminent domain issues can be complex, especially when procedures were not followed. Remember that you have the right to defend your property, receive a notice in a timely manner, and obtain fair compensation.

Our North Carolina attorneys have a successful track record. We have litigated cases in the state and federal courts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Florida, Arizona, and Texas on behalf of business owners and individuals. Attorney Don Strickland took part in the 1998 In re American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Dealerships Relations Litigation case, in which $78 million went to the firm's 16 clients. In related litigation, Don Strickland negotiated another recovery of an additional $60 million from Honda in 2002.

Unfair & Deceptive Practices

Deceptive trade practices are generally categorized as unethical business transactions that cause harm to or deceive consumers or other business owners. In North Carolina, victims of unfair and deceptive trade practices are entitled to have their damages trebled and may recover attorney fees as well.

Further, in land condemnation cases, the government takes private property for public use.

This includes taking one’s private property without paying just compensation:

  • Houses and condominiums
  • Family farms
  • Commercial property
  • Offices and manufacturing facilities
