Practice/Industry Group Overview

We work with public and private entities facing a variety of claims, including:

  • Slip and fall
  • Trip and fall
  • Wrongful death
  • Injuries due to falling merchandise
  • Negligent security cases
  • Criminal acts of third parties or former employees

Led by chair Lee Poole and vice chair Stephanie Gaston Poley, our attorneys will work with you to develop an effective strategy that meets your goals and needs.

In some cases, mediation or settlement of a claim may be the most attractive strategy. However, if a trial is your best option, we’re ready to aggressively defend you, using thorough and strategic discovery and thoughtful investigation facts as well as our relationships with prominent expert witnesses in the field.

Outside litigation, we can work with you to review and revise policies and procedures, implement best practices, and identify potential risk areas. We also provide training and continuing education seminars on risk management strategies as well as recent developments in the law.

The Premises Liability Practice Group covers all of North Carolina from our offices in Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington.
