New Bern Lawyers 

At Chesnutt & Clemmons, our team experienced and successful attorneys, combined with a talented and dedicated staff enables us to provide reliable counsel to clients across several legal verticals. We’ve built a reputation in the community for the vigor of our criminal defense practice. A defendant charged with anything from a DWI to a drug offense to a traffic ticket can come to us and know that we’ll thoroughly investigate the case. Anyone charged with a crime has the right to an attorney and we’re committed to seeing that our clients get an exceptionally conscientious and diligent attorney, one who  will fight hard for a good outcome. In the arena of civil representation, we work with clients on issues ranging from disputes over employment, thorny contractual disputes and complex disagreements between a business and its shareholders. 

Civil litigation calls for the ability to negotiate and the best negotiators are often those who are particularly well-prepared and have earned the respect of the person sitting across the table. That’s us. Our desire to fight for justice also extends to injury cases. When someone has been injured through the negligence of another, the injured party deserves a fair settlement. Whether they get it, may depend on the commitment and quality of their attorney.

There’s no greater professional compliment than word-of-mouth referrals. The recommendations of satisfied clients are how Chesnutt & Clemmons has built our practice, going all the way back to 1994. Our good reputation has grown in the community, and we’re honored that so many people have come to us with their legal concerns over the past 25-plus years. And we’re gratified that we’ve been able to achieve such a good track record representing those clients. 

Our founding partners are Attorney Marcus Chesnutt and Attorney Gary Clemmons. Marc’s career goes back to 1978, and he’s been named part of the National Top 100 Criminal Defense Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers, among other honors. Gary’s career, beginning in 1981, has seen him honored for his work in business law, injury cases, and the respect he’s earned among his peers have led to a wide publication of his writings. 

Talent attracts more talent in any field, and we’ve found that to be the case at Chesnutt & Clemmons. Over the years, Marc and Gary have taken on new lawyers who have become exceptionally accomplished in their own right. Whether it’s Attorney T.R. Cook, with his work in both criminal defense and workers comp, or Attorney Parker Chesnutt Honeycutt who has brought her decade of experience in corporate law to join the firm. 

The four lawyers of Chesnutt & Clemmons are supported by a staff that is diligent in their attention to detail and reliably responsive in their communication with clients. When someone comes through our doors, they know that their case is going to get the serious scrutiny and work it deserves. From our New Bern office, we serve all of Craven County, including Havelock, as well as Pamlico County, and we see clients by appointment in Carteret County. With our bilingual staff, we work with people in both the English and Spanish-speaking communities.
