Our distinguished support staff will always be available to answer your questions by phone.
We absolutely guarantee your phone calls will be returned promptly; no exceptions. We understand that nothing is more frustrating than radio silence from the team of professionals that you’ve hired to represent you during what is likely one of the most stressful times in your life. As a result, one of our major firm priorities is to keep you in the loop every step of the way through your case. Your calls, questions, and concerns matter, because your case is important.
After a serious accident or injury, you will need someone to help you navigate the legal system to maximize your monetary recovery. Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums, not by voluntarily paying out top- dollar in settlements. That’s why you need an experienced legal team in your corner to force the insurance companies to pay you the compensation you deserve. We get Asheville and Western North Carolina personal injury cases settled quickly, and for maximum value.
We care about our clients. You will have frequent contact with your lawyers and paralegals, and we will answer all your questions. We guarantee a quick response to your calls and emails. We know that the last thing youneed to be worried about while recovering from a serious injury is not being able to contact your attorney—so we’ve taken that additional stress out of the equation. Whether you’ve been hurt in a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, or any other accident that was someone else’s fault, we know what to do to push insurance companies to get your case settled as soon as possible.
When doctors, nurses, and hospitals make mistakes, Melrose Law is here to help you. We entrust doctors and other medical professionals with what is most important—our health and the health of our loved ones. When medical providers are negligent, they not only can harm you and your family, but many times remain a risk for the public at-large. Medical malpractice lawsuits are one of the best ways to hold doctors responsible for their actions.
We handle all types of medical malpractice cases from misdiagnosis, surgical errors, incorrectly prescribed or filled medication, birth injuries, and laparoscopic gallbladder surgeries. These cases can lead to catastrophic injuries, disability, and death. These cases can be very challenging, and just like you wouldn’t want to be the first patient of a newly licensed doctor, hiring an experienced lawyer and law firm will give you the edge you need to get your malpractice case settled fast.
At Melrose Law, we have helped numerous families in North Carolina bring negligent parties to justice and obtain the compensation they need following a loved one’s death. Wrongful death causes both emotional and financial hardship for the surviving family member.
We understand that nothing can ever take away the pain of losing someone you love, and we have also seen how beneficial it can be to resolve the questions surrounding his or her death to give you some closure. We are proud of our reputation as a compassionate law firm that will provide the support our clients need as we help them navigate through the process of handling a wrongful death claim.
Estate disputes often involve complicated legal issues wrapped up in long-standing family disagreements. Questioning the decedent’s capacity to write a Last Will, proving the undue influence of a new romantic partner or neighbor who convinces the testator to change their will to disinherit their children, confusing or conflicting language in a Last Will, and fraud committed by the administrator of an Estate are some of the many issues we can handle with respect to estate litigation.
All these disputes can involve substantial sums of money, and you need an experienced attorney at your side to protect your interests throughout the probate process. The probate litigation attorneys at Melrose Law can challenge the Last Will or defend your interests if someone else challenges the will.
