Curtis A Sluder

About me

Criminal, Traffic, and DWI defense is the primary, if not exclusive, thrust of my practice.  I grew up in Weaverville, NC, a small town just north of Asheville.  As a kid, I played baseball and football, went hunting and fishing, and was fortunate to enjoy a very close family.  I worked my way through college and law school, graduating from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 1998, and passing the North Carolina State Bar Exam that fall. As I attended law school while interning and volunteering with different firms and organizations, I had the opportunity to look into the legal culture of some larger firms.  While I had considered making a move to the "big city", and examined many different areas of law before beginning my course of study, I was naturally drawn back to areas of law that us regular folk might find ourselves.  I think I knew all along that I wanted to open my own law firm, partly because I did not like what I saw in other law firms- an impersonal service, frequently a lack of compassion for the clients, and often disdain for criminal defendants who may not have deserved such treatment. 

At the Curtis Sluder Law Firm, you will not find any of that. I know what it is like to have to work hard all week to support your family, week in and week out. I know what it is like to build up a life that you are proud of and want to protect what you have built. I know what it is like to enjoy life, and know how much criminal or even traffic problems can disturb your routine and wreck your quality of life.  No one plans on getting arrested.  No one plans on a DWI. No one plans on getting traffic charges.  I try to help my clients get their plans, and their life, back on track, with the least amount of disruption in their lives possible.
