How We Can Help
The Charlotte small claims lawyers at our firm are here to evaluate the dispute and determine the actual value of the claim whether it is a breach of contract action, a collections matter or even a landlord-tenant eviction issue. Sometimes we can help you realize other costs, money owed or damages that you may have been incurred. We can also determine other factors that would make it more appropriate to pursue your case through civil litigation, which we can handle for you as well.
If your case should be handled in small claims, we will help you find the best way to present your argument to the court. We can also represent you when you appear before the magistrate. We will make sure all the paperwork is filed correctly and timely in order to preserve your best claim.
We understand the specific rules that govern the North Carolina small claims process, and by accurately following these steps, we can help you save valuable time and money. We also avoid the chance of losing or of your case being thrown out because you missed a technicality if you tried to navigate the process on your own. If you have lost or want to appeal a small claims action that you handled yourself, or that another lawyer helped you with, we are happy to review the case and offer our help where we can.
