Edelstein & Payne  is a small firm that is committed to a big concept: justice for the workers of North Carolina. We emphasize representation of real people in employment disputes, workers' compensation, criminal defense, and personal injury cases; we never represent insurance companies or employers against workers! We also represent disabled people who have been wrongfully denied Social Security benefits. For over thirty years the attorneys at Edelstein & Payne have represented workers against the companies they work for, the people who cause them injury, and the insurance companies who delay and deny legitimate claims in favor of their own bottom line.

Since 1982, the attorneys at E&P have effectively advocated for the rights of good workers to the fruit of their labor. Firm attorneys are consistently ranked among “Best Lawyers," “Superlawyers,” and "Legal Elite," and have been recognized for outstanding community contributions.
