General Practice Services

I am available to help you with any legal questions or problems that you may have. Please take advantage of my free consultations. If it turns out that your problem requires a specialist, then I would be happy to refer you, free of charge, to an attorney that specializes in that area of law just like your family physician would refer you to a specialist if you had a unique medical condition.

Pricing Philosophy

I’m not a big law office in New York, so I don’t purport to be one with high hourly rates. I’m a solo lawyer in the small town of Hertford, located in Perquimans County, North Carolina, so I charge accordingly. As a solo lawyer I attempt to utilize the latest in legal technology trends to decrease my reliance on expensive support staff as well as other expenses, which means I am able to charge less for my services than larger law offices that have large overhead expenses.

Consultations: always free.

Flat Fees: if you do decide to hire me as your attorney, then, whenever possible, I will provide you with a flat fee, which will cover the entire cost of my services. This way you know upfront exactly how much it will cost you and will not have to worry about me charging you every time I answer your call.

Hourly Fees: In the rare instances where it is is hard to judge the depth of the legal problem and I must charge an hourly fee, then I will give you a quote in writing so you can compare my hourly fee.


I make an attempt to be in my office from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday to take care of any walk-ins. However, as a solo lawyer and the parent of three young children, sometimes that is not always possible. For this reason, I also understand that not everyone can meet an attorney during weekday business hours. If you would prefer to meet elsewhere or at a different time than normal business hours, then just contact me and we can work something out.
