Litigation

At Pittman & Steele, we represent clients in a variety of areas of civil litigation, including contract, shareholder, estate and trust, real estate, workers’ compensation and personal injury matters.

A core part of our business is the representation of businesses and their owners whether it be disputes among the owners or with their suppliers or customers.

Whether you are an owner, developer, general contractor, subcontractor or supplier our attorneys have experience handling construction or design defects, mechanic’s liens and bond law claims, contractual, indemnity and warranty disputes and claims involving personal injury and property damage.

We handle complex estate and trust disputes for a broad range of clients. We have experience representing the interests of beneficiaries and heirs, as well as the interests of executors, personal representatives, trustees and other fiduciaries in all aspects, including will caveats, claims of fraud, misappropriation, self-dealing, duress and undue influence, breach of fiduciary duties.

Our attorneys regularly represent clients in a real estate related litigation including commercial lease disputes, property disputes, contractual disputes involving purchase and sale agreements and related collection claims. We represent commercial landlords when it is necessary to evict a defaulting tenant and initiate lawsuits to seek the appropriate damages under the law.

If you are injured at work, our attorneys can handle your workers’ compensation claim from filing your claim to hearing with the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Do not speak to the insurance company about your claim without first speaking to one of our qualified attorneys. Workers’ compensation is complicated and whether you have suffered an injury by accident or an occupational disease, if you were hurt at work, you need an attorney to protect your rights.

If you have suffered a serious injury due to the fault of another person, you need to speak to one of our attorneys. Insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying a claim or pay as little as possible. You need an attorney with experience evaluating claims and presenting your strongest case to the insurance company or to the jury so you can maximize your recovery. We can help you with your liability, uninsured and underinsured claims.
