About Our Firm

Choosing a lawyer can be one of the most important decisions you ever make. Whether you’re dealing with a criminal charge, a traffic offense, a family law matter, or a personal injury, the attorney you trust to handle your case can make a huge difference in your life and in your future.

Many of the people our law firm works with have never needed to hire an attorney before. They don’t know what to expect or what type of outcome to hope for.

We believe it is absolutely essential to get an honest assessment of your case right from the start. Because the truth is: Not every criminal case is going to end with a dramatic jury verdict of not guilty. Very few divorces end with one person getting exactly what they want. And not every person who is hurt in a car accident gets a $50 million settlement.

In reality, each person’s best-case scenario is different. You need a knowledgeable attorney to sit down with you, go over all the facts of your case, explain your legal options, and answer all your questions.

At Kurtz & Blum, our law firm is known for:

  • Extensive Experience ─ We are a well-established law firm, fighting for the rights of Raleigh residents since 1998. Our skilled attorneys have more than a half a century of combined legal experience.
  • Honesty and Integrity ─ We are straight-shooters with a reputation for being sincere in our dealings with clients. Although we always fight to win, we want to prepare our clients for the challenges we may face along the way.
  • Strategic Representation ─ Our team gives each case the individualized attention it deserves. We don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to solving problems. Instead, we build strong and persuasive arguments based on the unique facts and circumstances of your case.
  • Courtroom Prowess ─ Our respected litigators know their way around a courtroom. Opposing attorneys recognize that we do not take cases just to reach a quick and easy settlement or plea deal.
  • Team Approach ─ With five attorneys and a robust legal support staff, we have the manpower to tackle the toughest cases. Our collaborative approach means everyone on our team is looking at your case from different angles to help develop a sophisticated legal strategy.
  • Quality Service ─ We believe that how we treat our clients is just as important as the verdicts we win. We keep our clients informed and return calls within 24 hours. We want you to know that your case is important to us.

How We Charge for Cases

Most of the clients who come to us are concerned about whether they can afford an attorney. Some wonder whether they need an attorney at all. We understand that hiring a lawyer is a big decision, and we will be upfront with you if we don’t think you need one.

When it comes to legal fees, we strive to make our services as affordable as possible:

  • Criminal cases are handled on a flat-fee basis. We can work with you to set up a payment plan. Or we accept payment through Visa and MasterCard.
  • Family law cases are typically billed hourly. You can pay by credit card, or we can set up a payment plan that meets your needs.
  • Personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis. This means our lawyers do not collect a fee unless you are compensated for your injury.

We believe everyone should have access to quality legal representation. Contact us today to discuss your case and learn how we can help!

Cases We Take

The skilled attorneys at Kurtz & Blum provide representation in the following types of cases:

Our attorneys have a long track record of successfully defending clients against accusations of driving while impaired. Because DWI law rapidly evolves in North Carolina, you need a Raleigh DWI attorney who is both experienced and has remained current with the everchanging legal landscape.
Our seasoned Raleigh criminal defense attorneys have aggressively fought for clients facing a range of charges, from misdemeanors like carrying a concealed weapon all the way up to felony drug possession and trafficking charges. Our skilled litigators also handle white-collar criminal defense cases such as embezzlement and violent cases such as robbery and murder.
What may seem like a simple traffic ticket can end up being quite the opposite. People often think they can simply pay off tickets or get PJCs (also known as a prayer for judgment continued) on their own. However, what you may not realize is that you are doing yourself more harm than good. Our attorneys will carefully review your driving record and negotiate with prosecutors with the goal of obtaining the best possible outcome for you.
Our compassionate Raleigh family law attorneys handle all matters related to divorce and separation with sensitivity and skill. Our legal team can assist you with equitable distribution of assets, child custody, child support, alimony, and modifications to existing court orders. In addition, we can help you with pre-nuptial agreements and adoption or surrogacy plans. No matter what type of family law matter you are facing, our attorneys will guide you through every step, whether inside or outside the courtroom.
If you have been hurt in an accident that was due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and even your time missed from work. Our experienced litigators handle a wide range of personal injury claims, including car accidents, slip-and-falls, and nursing home abuse. We also help families who have lost loved ones in tragic but preventable accidents. In addition, our attorneys serve as watchdogs over others in the legal field, pursuing claims of professional negligence if another lawyer’s mistakes have hurt your case.
