What our clients say

The firm’s partners are exceptionally knowledgeable and responsive. They provide terrific counsel on a wide variety of legal issues … story development, lawsuit threats, subpoenas, etc. Moreover, I’m impressed by the firm’s ability to pull together media coalitions to effectively fight for access to public records and open meetings.

Rick Gall,
WRAL News Director

Their knowledge of the North Carolina First Amendment landscape is without equal. They respond quickly to urgent needs and fight diligently for access to public records. Plus, they’re pleasant to work with.
