Campbell Law Review, Volume 43 – Protecting the Home: Castle Doctrine in North Carolina

” I worked with Manning Fulton on a landlord tenant case. The attorney, who worked with me, Mr. Lawrence D. Graham, Jr., was very helpful. He took the necessary time to answer my questions and explain my options in a clear and professional manner. He never made me feel as though my questions were naïve, nor did he ever give the impression that my case was simple and unimportant. He also was very courteous to the opposing party, the tenant, when speaking with her. I highly recommend Mr. Graham and the law offices of Manning Fulton”.
