Mr. Dugan was a terrific attorney. He was professional, kept me informed and accomplished exactly what he said he believed could be accomplished. He is knowledgeable and very personable. I would recommend him to anyone needing a defense attorney. Thank you Mr. Dugan.

Integrity, thorough, honest and continually responsive
Estate case not quite suited for Tim's firm but did hire him for a conference consultation with another family member after he did some background research into the case and gained alot more knowledge and understanding after almost an hour and he referred us to another firm that he's worked with thats well suited for the case. Highly recommended.

Outstanding Performance and Dedication
The absolute best choice for a Lawyer in Shallotte, Bolivia or Wilmington North Carolina is Tim Dugan of Dugan & Leger, Attorneys At Law. Tim is a smart, ethical, and hard hitting Bulldog of a lawyer who represented my case with much appreciated passion and professionalism. I have very little experience with attorneys and Tim took the time to make me feel like my issues were important and I wasn't "Just Another Client". He has a great attitude and personality which made me feel positive from the moment I met him and gave me huge confidence in future outcome of my case. I will continue to use Dugan & Leger as my representatives whenever the need arises and I'm very happy refer anyone needing a Lawyer they can count on.
