Your Trial Attorneys Other Areas of Practice

Other Areas of Practice 

Chesnutt & Clemmons has built an impressive track record of success in areas like injury lawsuits and criminal defense. But one of the advantages of working with a firm whose founding goes back to 1994 is that you can get legal counsel with background in a wide range of areas. Our team of attorneys, from our established stars to our up-and-comers, can help on any number of legal challenges. 

Our lawyers serve clients throughout Craven County and into Pamlico County, Carteret County, including Havelock. We work with both the English and Spanish-speaking communities. Call today at (252) 300-0133 or reach out online to set up a free consultation. Payment plans available.

Cases We Handle

Beyond injury cases and protecting defendants, Chesnutt & Clemmons will work with clients in the following areas…

Wills & Power of Attorney

The prospect of talking about what to do in the event of one’s own death or mental incapacitation isn’t pleasant. But getting our wishes documented is what ensures they will be legally binding. From the drafting of an airtight will, to making certain the right people are placed in charge of medical decisions and finances, we’re here to help. 

Family Law

Family law includes divorce and all that is connected with it—property division has to be worked out. Depending on the circumstances, child custody, child support payments and alimony may also be on the table. Family law can also include issues of guardianship and minor children. These issues are often both personally sensitive and legally complicated. Chesnutt & Clemmons can lead clients through them. 

Employment Law

A host of employment laws and regulations on the books at both the federal and state level serve to protect people’s rights. Does a person feel like they were fired without cause? Do they believe they were unjustly denied a promotion for reasons that are prohibited by civil rights law? Are there problems with overtime pay or the clocking of hours? All of these are legal subjects that are detail-intensive, and our New Bern attorneys know how to handle them. 

General Counsel

Companies of all sizes need legal representation from someone who understands their specific business, and advocates for them.  With years of experience serving as legal counsel for growing businesses, we are here to help guide you and your business and provide legal solutions tailored to meet your needs. Whether it's putting together your business formation documents, negotiating a services contract, writing an employment handbook, or negotiating the sale of your company, we offer legal support and guidance to small and medium sized businesses that do not have their own in-house legal team, as well as larger businesses seeking additional legal support on an as needed basis. 

Fighting for What You Deserve

One of the reasons Chesnutt & Clemmons has thrived since 1994, and continues to add fresh talent, is that we’re engaged in the community. Furthermore, we understand that the people we share a community with have rights under the law. We fight to see that those rights are understood by the people and respected by the system. People rely on strong legal advocacy to deal with thorny issues, and that’s what we do every single day.
