Practice Areas

Our primary areas of practice are Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury, and Criminal Defense. We also counsel and represent employees regarding workplace issues such as unpaid wages and overtime, and other issues such as wrongful discharge in violation of public policy, North Carolina state employees "just cause" proceedings, and employment discrimination. We represent individuals and labor organizations, but never work for insurance companies or on behalf of management against working people.

Attorneys for Edelstein and Payne have been lead counsel on many precedent setting cases, and strive to be the industry standard in client service. Our attorneys oversee every aspect of cases we accept, and we pride ourselves in keeping our clients informed about everything we do. We believe keeping our clients fully informed empowers them to make the tough decisions such as whether to accept a settlement offer. We communicate directly with our clients, frequently engaging in teleconferences or face to face meetings, ensuring that we are all on the same page.
