A History Of Success And Service

Our firm was founded by Charles Lanier (in memoriam) in 1972, and has grown to nine lawyers whose diverse skills and talents enable us to serve all the needs of our clients. Just as Onslow County continues to grow, we are dedicated to evolving to our clients’ needs.

Because of our long history in North Carolina and our diverse team with over 170 years of combined experience, we have the skills to assist you with any legal need. We take cases such as criminal defense, business law, family law, divorce, personal injury, residential and commercial real estate, probate, estate planning and more.

  • Excellent client service

  • Service to our community

What this means for you is that you will always receive our full attention and our best work. We treat every case with the utmost importance because we know how important it is to you.
