Our scope of practice at Tin Fulton Walker & Owen, PLLC

The attorneys at our practice serve as legal counsel in a wide range of legal matters, including but not limited to:

  • Personal injury: We take on injury cases involving serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries resulting from an act of negligence, whether vehicle-related, due to a faulty or defective product, or a failure to maintain the safety of premises, among other preventable injury cases.
  • Medical malpractice: A medical error, or a failure to provide the accepted standard of care, or act of medical negligence can leave a patient suffering serious health consequences or loss of life. Our firm has an extensive track record of success in achieving justice in cases involving misdiagnosis, birth injuries, surgical errors, and others.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect: When we entrust the care of an elderly loved one to a nursing home, it is horrifying to discover the facility or its personnel have inflicted harm through abuse or neglect. They must be held accountable for their actions.
  • Wrongful death: The loss of a loved one is a tragedy, but when the death was entirely avoidable and occurred as a result of an act of negligence, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed to seek justice for the family left behind. 
  • Criminal defense: Our criminal defense attorneys take an aggressive approach to defending our clients caught in the state or federal criminal justice systems. We believe that our early intervention in a criminal case can be critical to the case outcome. We zealously protect the constitutional rights of our clients during investigations performed by state or federal law enforcement. We seek out every possible legal strategy to help reduce the damage and achieve a more positive outcome.
  • White-collar defense: We defend cases brought by the DOJ, SEC, IRS, and CFTC, representing medical professionals, lawyers, mortgage brokers, marketing professionals, and others who are accused of financial crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion, or other white-collar crime.
  • Civil rights: We are dedicated defenders of the U.S. Constitution and the rights of the individual. We represent clients in a range of civil rights cases and have achieved remarkable outcomes in the U.S. Supreme Court, the North Carolina Supreme Court, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals in cases of age, disability, race, sex, gender, and other forms of discrimination.
  • Employment and labor: At Tin Fulton Walker & Owen, PLLC, our attorneys are regarded as leaders in the field of employment and labor law, filing a case with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), representing clients at trial, and on appeal in state and federal courts. We have achieved remarkable victories at trial and have litigated seminal employment and labor cases before the United States Supreme Court, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, the North Carolina Supreme Court, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals. 
  • Employment discrimination: Our lawyers seek justice and fair play in cases of employment discrimination related to race, national origin, sex, religion, and other types of discrimination occurring in the workplace. The firm’s lawyers also advise clients regarding severance agreements, non-compete agreements, and employment contracts.
  • Immigration law: We represent clients in an array of immigration matters before the USCIS, Department of State, Office of Immigration Review, Administrative Appeals Office, and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in cases of removal proceedings, asylum, cancellation of removal, and 212(h) proceedings.
  • Education law: We represent teachers and other educators before administrative tribunals, school boards, and state and federal courts in cases associated with job retention, due process rights, freedom of speech, and defense against unwarranted criminal allegations.
  • Family law: Our firm offers the full range of family law legal support, including divorce, separation, child custody, stepparent custody, grandparent custody, child support, equitable distribution of assets, support, alimony, paternity cases, annulments, termination of parental rights, separation agreements, and prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements and others.
  • Appellate law: Appellate law is an area few lawyers choose to practice due to the complexity of the rules and procedures. Our firm is experienced in handling appeals in either state or federal court, including the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and at the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals of North Carolina.
  • Professional disciple and licensing: The firm advises and represents individuals in administrative matters related to licensing, professional responsibility, and discipline. They have represented attorneys and judges in matters before the North Carolina State Bar, as well as educators in school board proceedings.
  • Business litigation: Our firm advises and represents businesses and business owners in business-related matters, including contract disputes, torts, personnel matters, and non-litigation transactions.

We care about fighting for the underdog, and those who could become a casualty of the justice system without the assistance of skilled counsel.
