From the coast to the mountains, North Carolina is as beautiful as it is unique. Wilmington and the surrounding areas are great places to live, work, and visit, with a rich history and charming culture.
Even though North Carolina is a wonderful place, sometimes we are faced with legal challenges. In New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties and throughout North Carolina, the lawyers at the Speaks Law Firm are committed to providing exceptional legal service whenever these legal problems arise. Founded in 1997 by R. Clarke Speaks, the Speaks Law Firm has become a regional leader in developing comprehensive solutions to complex injury, criminal, family, and civil litigation problems.
We work diligently to solve these conflicts outside of the courtroom through cooperative means. Because we work cooperatively to develop comprehensive solutions to these complex legal problems, we are usually able to reach our clients' objectives without going to court. However, sometimes court is unavoidable. We practice in different but complementary areas of the law. This gives us a broad range of experience. As a result, when we must go to court, we go with confidence because we have the experience, skills, and relationships to be successful when we get there.
