Welcome to Kurtz & Blum, Attorneys at Law, your source for a reliable lawyer in Raleigh and the surrounding areas.

North Carolina Trial Lawyers Helping Clients in Criminal, DWI, Traffic, Injury and Family Law Cases Since 1998.

We are North Carolina Trial Lawyers Who Proudly and Zealously Defend Our Clients' Rights Both Inside and Outside the Courtroom.

At Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, we strive to provide the highest quality legal services available. Our attorneys aggressively defend our clients' rights both inside and outside the courtroom while adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards. We treat each client with respect and each case with vigilance. We return calls within 24 hours, keep our appointments, and keep our clients informed.  We emphasize courtroom prowess while ensuring our clients receive the finest quality customer service at all times.  The partners, Howard Kurtz and Seth Blum, together have over 40 years of combined trial experience.  Kurtz & Blum has the experience you need.

Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, provides representation in the following practice areas:

DWI or DUI Defense Lawyers - We regularly defend clients against accusations of driving while impaired.  DWI law has rapidly evolved into one of the most complex areas of trial practice.  In order to find an effective advocate for a DWI case, it is important to look for a Raleigh Attorney who is both experienced and has remained current with the ever changing legal landscape.  At Kurtz & Blum, we place unparalleled emphasis on keeping on top of the law.

Criminal Defense Attorneys - We will aggressively defend you against all the manner of allegations ranging from misdemeanors like assault on a female or carrying a concealed weapon, all the way up to felony drug possession or trafficking in controlled substances.  We also handle white collar criminal defense cases like embezzlement and obtaining property by false pretenses as well as violent crimes such as robbery or murder.  Our State and Federal criminal defense trial attorneys are experienced in handling the most serious and high profile of cases. 

Traffic Ticket and Speeding Lawyers - What may seem like a simple traffic ticket really isn’t always simple at all.  People think that they can simply pay off tickets or get PJCs (also known as a prayer for judgment continued) on their own, but what they may not realize is that they are doing themselves more harm than good.  It’s only after a careful review of a driving record that we make judgments about how to handle our clients’ cases and, even then, much depends on what the prosecutor is willing to do in your situation.  We work with prosecutors every day and know the rules, even those that aren’t written down.  If you have a ticket, we can help.

Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Attorneys - If someone injured you in an accident and it was due to their negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and even your time lost from work. If you were injured on the job or while working, you may be able to seek workers' compensation benefits.  Our experienced litigators will work diligently to recover every penny you deserve.  Additionally, we handle wrongful death claims for people who lost loved ones due to someone’s negligent conduct, and we represent people who have had loved ones harmed due to the negligence of nursing home care providers.  Related to personal injury law is the law surrounding professional negligence.  If you or a loved one has been harmed by the mistakes or negligence of an attorney, you may be entitled to financial compensation for those losses as well.  At Kurtz & Blum, our experienced trial lawyers will work hard to help make you whole.

Family Law Attorneys - We handle all matters related to divorce and separation with compassion, sensitivity and skill. Our legal team has experience with equitable distribution, child custody, child support, alimony, and modifications to existing court orders. We are fully equipped to help with both separation agreements and prenuptial agreements.  Our attorneys will guide you through every step, whether inside or outside the courtroom.  In addition, we can also help your family grow by assisting you with either adoption or surrogacy.

Criminal cases are handled on a flat fee basis, while family law cases are typically billed hourly.

Personal Injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. Our Raleigh lawyers do not collect a fee unless you are compensated for your injury.
