Parker Poe's litigation experience is extensive. We represent clients before state and federal trial courts, governmental agencies and national and international arbitration panels throughout the Carolinas, the South and the world. Many of our litigation attorneys have been named by their peers to the American College of Trial Lawyers and among Woodward/White's The Best Lawyers in America and Business North Carolina magazine's "Legal Elite."
We also engage in all methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation, arbitration and summary jury trials. Many of our lawyers served on the task forces and committees charged with developing ADR methods for use in North Carolina and were involved in writing the rules applicable to these techniques. We were also the first firm to participate in a summary jury trial in court in North Carolina.
In addition, Parker Poe litigators have successfully handled appeals in all appellate levels of the state and federal court systems. We draw on the experience our attorneys have gained as former law clerks from the United States Supreme Court, federal Circuit Courts of Appeals, federal district courts in North Carolina and other states, the North Carolina Supreme Court, the North Carolina Court of Appeals and appellate courts of other states. We handle appeals involving not only cases we have tried, but also cases referred to us from other lawyers who seek our specialized experience in the appellate courts.
