PRACTICE AREAS

LITIGATION / TRIAL PRACTICE

Roberta King Latham is a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America and holds a Martindale-Hubbell “AV” Rating. These ratings are given to lawyers for their strong legal ability and uncompromising ethical standards. Only 5 percent of all attorneys hold this elite recognition.

I am an experienced litigator with over 16 years of experience. I never approach litigation as a one-size-fits-all approach. I create unique, practical, and budget-friendly strategies for all our clients depending on their needs and requirements. Whether you need a quiet settlement or a high profile win, I am here to help.

BUSINESS LAW

Business conflicts are almost always complex. They can be the source of not just your anguish and pain but also drain company resources. I help businesses of all sizes not just with conflicts, but with all aspects of business law, including company formation and contracts.

PERSONAL INJURY

You may receive financial compensation if you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to the negligence of another.

I am passionate about getting you the justice that you deserve.

EMPLOYMENT ISSUES

Whether you have been the subject of discrimination, harassment, or have been wrongfully terminated, I am here to make sure that justice is served for you.

WORKERS COMPENSATION

In North Carolina, employers with three or more employees are required to obtain workers’ compensation insurance to provide benefits for work-related injuries or illnesses to their employees. The laws governing workers’ compensation are administered by the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC).

No matter what your profession, your employer should provide you with a safe and secure working environment. If you have been injured on the job, you can count on me.

APPELATE PRACTICE

If a trial ends in loss, the first thing that comes to a client’s mind is “Can we appeal this?”

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors including analysis of the case, knowledge of the relevant law, a deep understanding of the procedures and practices, and the knowledge of the appellate courts and the judges presiding over them.

The key to a winning an appeal starts before a notice of appeal is filed. From the start, the way through the trial, I work diligently to ensure that your case is properly handled.

INSURANCE COVERAGE

I proudly represent businesses and individual clients in legal matters regarding their insurance policies. I have a proven track record in handling complex disputes related to insurance coverage law.

My strategy is always aligned with my client’s financial interests and I use my skills to efficiently resolve disputes in a cost-effective manner.

I have a deep knowledge of insurance companies and how they work. I use that knowledge to my clients advantage.
