We Intentionally Limit Our Caseload

While some North Carolina law firms take in huge numbers of cases and settle them for pennies on the dollar, we intentionally limit our caseload. We do this because we care about our clients and want to help them achieve the best possible results.

We are Trial Lawyers

Many large law firms will represent a client and pursue their claim without any real intention of taking the case to trial. Insurance companies keep track of these lawyers, and will never pay out the full value of a claim to lawyers are unwilling to take a case all the way to trial. The lawyers at Melrose Law are trial lawyers that are more than willing to pursue a claim all the way through a jury trial if we think it is in our client’s best interests.

We Give You Individual Attention

When you work with us, there will always be someone available to speak with you during business hours. If you would like to talk with one of the attorneys at Melrose Law who are handing your case, they will get back to you within 24 hours. We understand that lack of communication is one of the biggest complaints that people have with lawyers, so we make it a priority to be the exception to the rule.

We Take a Team Approach

While you will always receive personalized attention from the attorneys, you will also have access to our entire team of experienced legal professionals. In complex litigation, we always take a team approach, which gives you the benefit of multiple people who are familiar with your case, and who are working to get you the best result possible.

We Give You an Honest Opinion

After evaluating your situation, we will tell you honestly whether we believe your case is worth pursuing. We will never encourage you to hire us or pursue a claim if we do not think that we can help you achieve a positive outcome.
