FORMER INSURANCE CO. DEFENSE ATTY. NOW OFFERING FREE VIDEO CHAT CONSULTATIONS.

If there is one thing that helps me maximize the results for clients, it is the valuable experience I gained on the "other" side while working as a defense lawyer for the insurance companies. Defending and going to trial on the very same types of cases I now handle provided unique insight into the thought processes of insurance adjusters, their bosses (the real decisionmakers), and the attorneys they hire to try to minimize or defeat your claim.

I handle wrongful death and most types of serious personal injury cases throughout North Carolina, but I am also licensed in Florida, where I continue to handle select cases. In 2013,  I earned national board certification in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and I earned re-certification in 2019. I have obtained an "AV Preeminent" rating from confidential reviews by my peers and judges. This is the highest rating a lawyer can have under the Martindale-Hubbell rating system and it is based on a lawyer's proven legal ability and ethics.

Car Accident Personal Injury
Mr. Maurer provided personal injury representation for us as the result of a serious car accident involving our son. Prior to retaining his services, we researched and interviewed several attorneys but were most impressed with Mr. Maurer's experience and realistic assessment of our situation. Based on the specifics of the the accident, Mr. Maurer was successful in securing the maximum personal injury compensation available while also minimizing the amount of the health insurance and medical liens that were placed on the potential settlement, This was our first experience with retaining an attorney for a personal injury matter and we give Mr. Maurer the highest recommendation for his professionalism, timely communication, and overall effectiveness. We are extremely thankful that our son made a full recovery from the injuries he suffered in the car accident, but we are also very grateful for the legal work Mr. Maurer did on our behalf to secure fair compensation for our son's personal injuries.

Cool Headed Professional in a Difficult Case
Our mother was in a horrific multi-car accident last summer in which five people were killed. She was lucky enough to survive and while she was in ICU we tried to find a local attorney to represent her, knowing that with all the parties involved it could get complicated. Most of the attorneys we talked to seemed either too shady or too green but when we met with Michael we felt we were dealing with a total professional with a good heart. The case was complicated involving three different trucking companies, multiple insurance companies, and many different plaintiffs. He went above and beyond to be the honest broker during the mediation process and was instrumental in getting all the parties to agree to final settlement without litigation. His expenses were surprising reasonable and he and his team took full responsibility for handling and negotiating with the various health care providers involved, which included providers in three different states plus a very obstinate helicopter ambulance service. There's no doubt that in a situation like this we should be grateful just to have a few more years with our mother - given the other families that lost so much. We're especially grateful that we found someone like Michael to look after her interests and at the very least ensure that she didn't get taken advantage of our set back financially. Micheal bears no resemblance at all the stereotype of the personal injury lawyer. He's a serious, honest guy and a great person to have in your corner when things get serious.

Personal Injury
I can't recommend Maurer Law Firm enough after I had retained them to assist with my personal injury case. Mike helped kickstart this case and made my life 100% easier as I had little to no knowledge on how personal injury cases worked. I am pleased that I had brought this team in to represent me and very grateful for all that Maurer Law Firm has done on my behalf. I cannot thank you enough!!!

Amazing firm
Mike and Naomi are a fantastic legal team. I highly recommend them. From day one of taking on my case, their sincerity, professionalism, and knowledge was abundantly clear. My case was not clear cut or typical. A lot of technical & specialized research was required. The Maurer Law team got it all done. I read every single document they put together and sent out. They worked with me each step of the way. They were always a phone call or email away if I ever had a question or needed help. Mike and Naomi always kept me informed as the status of the case changed. When we went to trial they were organized and very well prepared. I was also impressed by their genuine caring and concern for my well being. The long term ramifications of my injury mattered to them, and that means a lot. If I am ever in need of legal services again, I'm calling Mike & Naomi.

Motor Vehicle Accident with Injuries
Maurer Law did a great job handling my recent motor vehicle accident case. This was my first time working with an attorney for a bodily injury claim. Mike and his staff did a great job laying out what to expect. I felt well-informed through what turned out to be a 15-month process. I was glad to have an expert on my side who understood the steps to take and when to take them. Mike's experience became an ever more obvious benefit leading to a very satisfactory outcome.

Good Law Office
I hired Mr. Mike and Ms. Naomi for a car accident where i was severely injured. They fought for me very hard. This went on for over 2 years and when the insurance company did not offer a fair settlement, they took them to Court and filed a lawsuit to pursue justice. During the lawsuit process the insurance company finally agreed to pay a fair amount for my injuries and I am glad I was able to finally put this matter behind me. The communications with this Law Firm were excellent they always answered my questions, returned my calls and stayed on top of my Case. I very highly recommend them for their customer service, knowledge, legal strategey, and be willing to fight for My Rights!! They are a small firm and do not advertise, but that is the way they are able to be so involved with the case because they only take on a certain # of serious cases and I am GLAD they took mine.

Head on collision
In 2018 the day before Thanksgiving on my way home from work I was hit on a head on collision by a drunk driver leaving multiple injuries, multiple surgeries, and life long injuries. Since it was a drunk driver I thought this would be a simple payout from the insurance company but for some reason the police report was saying that I was the one actually at fault and even though logically a sober person hitting a drunk driver makes zero sense the insurance company were placing the blame on me and that's when I contacted Maurer law firm. Mr. Maurer reviewed my case and took it right away. The first thing he did was hire a private investigator to investigate the police report that was saying that I was the one at fault. The investigation led to the police report getting changed and also figuring out that my case was way bigger than I could of imagined since the drunk driver had just been making deliveries for a major company before he hit me. Him and his assistant Ms.Connie always kept me updated on the process and never hesitated to answer any questions I had, even set physical therapy meetings for me as well. Almost a 3 year long case Maurer law firm worked with me every step of the way answering every question that I had in great detail, reassuring me the entire time how he always felt good about my case. At the end I got wayyyyyyy more money than I thought I would get, Mr. Maurer even negotiated discounts from all my medical bills saving me over $100k. I'll honestly be lying if I didn't say Mr.Maurer has a hand in changing the course of my life for the better. He is highly recommended without a doubt and I appreciate everything Michael Maurer and his assistant Ms.Connie did for me, something that will never be forgotten!

Professional, Experienced, Felt like Family!
Mike and his team had my back from the get-go. I was already dealing with the sudden loss of a family member when I was hit by a drunk driver, and from our first meeting I knew that I could trust and rely on Mike, Skyla and Connie 100%. They gave me the confidence that I had a strong team on my side to help put this chapter of my life behind me. I would without a doubt recommend Mike! Thank you for everything you have done for me!

Highly Recommend
I was in a car accident in June 2019, where I was rear ended at a red light by a semi. My dad had found Mr. Maurer while researching attorneys and was impressed with his experience working for insurance companies. After meeting him I felt confident my case would be handled by the best person, and it was. Both Mr. Maurer and his staff are professional, responsive, and always kept me informed what was going on. The claim was settled in under a year and for an amount I was more than happy with. I highly recommend working with Maurer Law.

Honesty. Integrity. Transparency. Partnership
I was in a car accident in 2017 after someone made an illegal turn directly in front of me on a main thoroughfare... My car was totaled, and as a result I ended with major health concerns. I was referred to a neurosurgeon and after the appointment I decided to do some research on local attorneys. I came across the Maurer law firm and read through all the rave reviews, I decided right then that Michael Maurer was the lawyer I wanted to represent me, and after I met him in person... I was convinced. It was the best decision, and worked out better than I could have hoped for. My needs were put first and I was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Michael Maurer and his team fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Something I valued highly with them is the fact that they took a pragmatic approach to the law and didn't over complicate things unnecessarily. They followed up and supported the case and myself throughout. Michael Maurer is personable, sincere, talented, honest and experienced, he was also available on a daily basis and responded directly to my questions promptly and professionally. The team showed their best at all times. I would recommend and refer this firm to friends, family and strangers alike. I consider myself a realist so even though I had unlimited confidence in Mike and his team, there were times (over the two proceeding years) that I had my doubts. I'm so glad that they were receptive to my concerns. In the end, I was pleasantly surprised with the settlement through mediation. Mike worked with all involved parties to reduce the costs... and even lowered his fee to ensure I was happy with the settlement, which I was. I can't say enough great things about Mike, the Maurer law firm and the team (Skyla was amazing!). If I ever find myself in need of an attorney again, my first call will be to the Maurer Law firm. You'd be hard pressed to find a more competent and dedicated team.

Look no further!
Where do I begin? I was in a terrible car accident in 2017’. The lawyer that I initially hired for my case lied, manipulated, and did nothing ultimately. I realized after a little over a year that my case would fall down the drain if I didn’t fire this lawyer and find a new one. I also realized that this lawyer was only concerned about getting whatever amount he could from my case and had no care of what was best for me. After researching several lawyers on Google, I finally came across one that caught my attention, Lawyer Maurer. What caught my attention was the large number of excellent reviews given by Lawyer Maurer’s clients. I couldn’t stop reading them because I saw not one negative review and thought this was too good to be true until I hired him. I can honestly say from day one of meeting Lawyer Maurer and talking to him in the comfort of my own home; I was blown away by his expertise and how confident and comfortable he made me feel to have his representation. There wasn’t a time of day that I couldn’t call or email him and his staff and get immediate assistance. They worked hard around the clock to get my case resolved, and if it weren’t for the detective he hired, crucial evidence that surfaced wouldn’t have. Lawyer Maurer is one of the most compassionate, honest, and hardworking lawyers I know. You can tell he loves what he does, and that’s one of the best types of people to have on your side. Not only does he represent you as a client, but also builds a loyal relationship. He will also help you with any other issues or questions you may have if he can. He makes every effort to go that extra mile, and I will recommend him until the end of time. If you are looking for a lawyer that will have your back, be honest no matter what, and work thoroughly on your case until you get the results satisfying to you, Lawyer Maurer is your guy.

Prayers Answered
I woke up on mom’s first Heavenly Birthday and I look up and told my momma to show me what I needed to do. I went in took a shower got on the internet and I found Michael Maurer. I sent a brief email and within two hours “He” called me. I was at the cemetery visiting my mom and feeling broken. I talked with him for a little while and he asked me to come in for a consultation. A couple days later I went for a consultation and I knew that day that I had found the perfect lawyer for me and I signed with him. Michael listened to everything I had to say and he cared! It is hard when you are struggling with unknowns and you feel like no one will believe you but I had found this man that believed in what I was telling him. Michael fought hard for me and in the end I know my momma was extremely happy with the outcome. I would recommend Michael Maurer to anyone that feels like no one will understand or care. If you need a lawyer that will fight for what is right, give him a call.

What a weight off of my shoulders
Mr. Maurer did such a fantastic job with my case. He and his firm were attentive, informative, friendly, and so helpful. They run an organized office. Mr. Maurer really helped me out with a personal injury (dog bite) case and I can't even convey how much hes changed my perception of legal issues. At first I felt helpless and hat there was almost no way that I would be compensated regarding my situation. As soon as I met Mr. Maurer he ensured me that he'll take care of it. And he sure did! Its a great feeling knowing that someone's taking care of it & that my case is in good hands. He's a very knowledgeable, friendly, generous, professional, and realsitic lawyer. I'm very grateful for him & his office!

Horse Riding Accident
Michael Maurer was recommeded to us to handle my wife's horse riding accident case. From the get go, Michael was personally involved every step of the way. Michael never sent a proxy to represent him, it was always Michael himself we spoke with. We always received the attention we needed, and Michael answered all our questions along the way. My wife's accident liability case was quite complex and long, but Michael worked thru it persistently and always had our best interest in mind. We found Michael to be honest and straightforward in his communications. The whole Maurer law office staff was a pleasure to work with. And ultimately...Michael was able to negotiate a favorable settlement to my wife.

Loyal and honest attorney
Around a year and half ago I was in a horrible car accident where I was actually struck by the car. I looked online on this site and came across Michael Maurer's profile. I read his profile and felt that he would be the best fit based on the reviews I read. I had no clue how lucky I was to have picked him and his team. Attorney Maurer and his team were very dedicated including working weekends as well. Maurer met me at my accident site he was very patient. Naomi always kept me informed and that's hard to do in my case as I'm a merchant mariner and I work for the Navy. Everywhere I went from the chiropractor to doctor appointments, everyone said I had the right lawyer because a lot of lawyers would have dropped my case but they fought to the end and won. I would recommend attorney Maurer and his team to anyone, the best team around.

This is the guy you want!
I was run off the road by a driver who cut across my path. After an uncomfortable phone conversation with the driver's insurance adjuster I decided to get an attorney. Not wanting to go through the bunch of the lawyers who sent me mailers, I found Mike Maurer through a Google/Avvo search. He came out to my house for my initial consultation since I had a broken foot and ankle and couldn't walk well. He drove me to the scene of the accident to look around and even visited surrounding convenience stores looking for camera footage. I found his firm to be extremely helpful throughout the case management. They handled absolutely everything except my visits to the doctor. They kept me well informed of what was happening throughout the process without asking too much of me at all. Mike himself is a cool, amiable, and collected guy. Even fighting an insurance giant like Allstate, he possesses the confidence, experience, and knowledge to make sure my case wouldn't be beaten for an unavoidable accident that was at no fault of mine, despite North Carolina's contributory negligence statute. His paralegals, Connie and Skyla, are also wonderful ladies. Every conversation I had with anyone there was quite pleasant, very professional, well informed, and all communication handled in a very timely manner. They expressed genuine concern for my well being and satisfaction with their management of my case, making sure I was progressing well through my medical treatments and that the legal ends were tied up in a timely, but not rushed manner. Mike’s advice was honest and fair. He was realistic in setting any expectations of the settlement outcome and willing to go the extra mile to maximize my settlement. I greatly thank him and his team for all they did for me and highly recommend Maurer Law Firm to anyone who has similar circumstances.
