At Glover Law Firm we handle any type of criminal charge in state or federal court in northeastern North Carolina.
Traffic tickets, DWI’s as well. We also handle significant personal injury cases, including car wrecks, truck wrecks, bicycle wrecks, motorcycle wrecks, pedestrian fall-down cases, anything involving a significant, serious permanent injury.
Death cases are unique – Danny Glover
First of all, the family is going through just an absolutely terrible time, and there’s really no way that we can do anything that’s going to do anything that’s going to take the place of their lost loved one, and it’s important, and what I view our main job to be in death cases, is to fully explain the extent of the loss, by going back and looking at old family histories and videos, talking about family vacations, family reunions, family get-togethers, holidays, things that a family can no longer have with their lost loved one, and it’s difficult for the family to express those things, and so that’s what we do.
When a family loses a father and a financial supporter, we utilize economic experts to take a look at the totality of not only the loss of a father but the loss of a supporter, and that has to be quantified by a economists and projected throughout the life of that support.
That can be complicated, but we have done that for years and years with experts that we know and trust and that have been deemed credible by the North Carolina courts.
Customer service is very, very important, especially when you’re doing criminal defense or personal injury work, because you’re dealing with people who have come to you because they have a major problem.
These problems that I’m handling vastly effect my clients’ life, so it’s very important that we be responsive to not only their legal needs but to their questions about their case, to their questions about the impact of their case on their lives and families, and so customer service is very, very important to us.
