City seeks damages against North Carolina builder

From the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks, the Tar Heel State relies on quality construction for its millions of homes and businesses. This can range from good maintenance of older structures dating back as far as the 18th century to the new buildings with modern materials that spring up out of modern blueprints. When contractors and other builders get it wrong, they must be held accountable.

  • I recommend the law offices of Randolph M. James. He and his associate kept me informed throughout my case and were very knowledgeable about the facts surrounding my situation. Because of their experience, they were able to guide me to the proper venue where the judiciary was qualified to deal with complex issues such as mine. Thus, we received a favorable outcome. Should I need legal counsel in the future, I would obtain the services of Randolph M. James again.
