How did we choose this line of work?

Each of our lawyers went into law for different reasons, but all share a passion for service to the community.

The best advice we can give someone who is looking for legal representation? Anyone who has legal needs should begin by asking relatives and business associates for recommendations. Most of our work comes from referrals by satisfied clients and their families.

Our firm has been a part of this community for 65 years. We volunteer our time to local non-profit agencies and churches. We are proud to call the Catawba Valley home.

What is next for this industry?
