Your Wilmington, N.C. Law Firm for Criminal Defense, Injury and Estate Planning. See our goals for working with you and contact us today.

      We are your family's law firm for life.

      Life Happens.

      Every day, people with good intentions find themselves on the wrong side of the law. From a traffic offense in Wilmington to an arrest for a misdemeanor in New Hanover County, being charged with any type of crime can be enormously frightening. With your future on the line, you need help from an experienced criminal defense attorney in Wilmington. 

      Likewise, if you have been injured by someone else's negligence, you need someone who knows how to maximize your recovery and return your life to normal.  Wilmington Attorney Dennis Sullivan has over 20 years of experience as a trial lawyer representing injured people and families traumatized by the wrongful death of a loved one.

    Additionally, through our Estate and Elder law subsidiary, Compass Legal Strategies, we will customize a plan for your family to ensure the preservation of assets and the preparation for transfer of wealth to future generations. The planning process also includes making your wishes known through advanced health care directives, and gives you the power to make decisions about life in advance.

Our firm's goals in our relationship:

     1.   We want to be considered YOUR FAMILY'S LAW FIRM.  What that means is, when you have a legal question of ANY KIND, call us first. If it is not something we have experience with, we will find and recommend the right lawyer to handle that issue for you.

      2.    Communication is the key to any relationship.  Our goal is to return all phone calls and emails to our clients within 24 hours.

       3.    We set our fees up front. At our initial meeting, we will discuss the scope of work and the time frame in which it will be provided. Except in special situations, we do not charge by the hour. We let you know how much our fee will be, and we will bring in the work on time and on budget.

The Purpose of This Website:

        We have written this site with the client in mind. Our goal is to provide you with as much information about your legal issue as possible. Through our books, our blog and our FAQS, we want to answer your questions about the law.
