Compassionate and tough
I had a pretty complicated case and I knew I would be paying my fees until we settled. Ms. Noble and her legal team helped me with the case and even the stress, and they offered me options for parts of the process to keep costs down. They are tough and not jerks like some attorneys! And we got a great mediated settlement. I recommend them completely.

The Noble Law stands for the client!
When we came to The Noble Law Firm, we were discouraged, hurt, and confused. The case was not a simple one, but Ms. Noble examined the data and listened to us carefully. She decided to represent us even though the case was challenging. Ms. Noble and Mr. Sanservino came to our aid. They worked for our cause, interacting with our opposition professionally and fairly toward a conclusion that satisfied us. Even though the opposition had unlimited time and resources, The Noble Law Firm was able to spur them to action in our favor so that we could continue our lives. It became obvious to us over the course of our case that these attorneys had served people like us before, with cases as difficult or worse. They anticipated how the opposition would respond, so we followed their advice and instructions to achieve the outcome favorable to us. They were not intimidated by the opposition's arrogance nor by the challenges we gave them. We could not have asked for better treatment and protection as they pursued our case relentlessly. If you want a firm that has intelligent, strong attorneys, who are tenacious in the pursuit of your case, look no farther than Laura Noble and Nick Sanservino of The Noble Law Firm in Chapel Hill.

Proven resolution -oriented!
My experience was positive and I am grateful that I chose the Noble Law firm to represent my case. I was referred to Noble Law Firm by other lawyers whom I called directly for advice prior to actually speaking to Laura, which gave me an immediate sense of confidence that my case will be handled by experts. Indeed, the Noble Team Firm demonstrated excellence in their expertise in addition to their already known extensive legal work experience and stellar academic background. From initial interview by Laura who spoke to me immediately on the same day I called the firm, followed by Deirdre who immediately took care of the paperwork and scheduled a meeting with Nick (as my lawyer) for office consultation proved efficiency and commitment to my case. From my first conversation with Nick, you become aware of his integrity and knowledge, and more over the passion he exudes for his work. Any concern or question I had was immediately addressed; any information I requested was promptly forwarded; and phone calls were answered in a timely manner. My opinion and thoughts regarding my case when discussed with my lawyer were treated with respect and attention and I think that’s important in a lawyer-client relationship. I felt validated that my input was heard and I received an honest response, which showed my lawyer took the time to listen and deciphered information pertinent to the case. From experience, I strongly believe the Noble Law Firm can help resolve cases (simple or complex) on employment- related matters. It took 3 months for Noble Law Firm to resolve the case but throughout, both Laura and Nick continued to show honesty, genuine warmth and kindness. They cared and were strategic in seeking resolution for their client’s best interest. I highly recommend the Noble Law Firm without reservation to anyone seeking legal representation on employment matters. Thank you so much!

Professional and Hardworking Advocate
Laura Noble was recommended to me by another lawyer that I know well. She agreed to take a look at my case to see if she felt that she would be able to assist me obtain a favorable outcome. A demand was sent to my former employer which unfortunately fell on deaf ears. Despite this, Laura kept continuing to advocate on my behalf until it became apparent that a decision had to be made on how the case could move forward. Due to her heavy workload and the actual case facts, she wasn't able to take my case through litigation but we mutually agreed that litigation wasn't the best avenue based on the circumstances. She also provided me with an additional resource should I decide to litigate my case. Laura was receptive, helpful, responsive, knowledgeable and fought hard for me. What I really liked about Laura most was that she was direct and to the point and told me up front what her expectations were and how she would fight for me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a hard-working and well respected professional lawyer in the employment law field.
