David is trustworthy and very knowledgeable. He goes above and beyond what is expected and he is very professional in his approach to helping his clients. He made us feel like we were family and he was truly looking out for our best interest. I highly recommend him as an attorney.

I have retained other lawyers in Fayetteville and was very disappointed. Mr. Courie and his wonderful staff literally changed my view on lawyers. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants the best results. He did exactly what he said he would and was very upfront with me. I appreciate his honesty more than I can express. He has been my lawyer for 3 years and the ONLY lawyer I will EVER use in Fayetteville!

One evening I was stopped by police in Fayetteville North Carolina and received two very serious charges. I am from Greensboro North Carolina and had no knowledge of attorneys in the Fayetteville area. Once back home, I researched attorneys in Cumberland County. I wanted to find the absolute “best traffic attorney” in that jurisdiction. I visited many websites and read extensively over the next few days. One name kept coming up. It was “David T. Courie”. I decided to call his office and spoke to Anne in the office of the firm. She was extremely friendly, caring, professional and efficient. She took my information, asked all the right questions, and set up a consultation call from Mr. Courie.
David called the next day. His experience and confidence were evident, even over the phone. He was personable and caring, but got to the point. He discussed potential outcomes and explained his fee. I agreed to employ him. Over the next few days I emailed back and forth with his senior paralegal Danielle. I emailed her copies of the charges and all relevant information. She too was friendly and efficient, always answering my questions directly and immediately.
A few months later I received an email from Danielle and David stating that he had been able to have the charges dismissed! I never went to court. I never even went back to Fayetteville! As stated earlier, the charges were significantly serious.
I’m sure there are less expensive attorneys in the area and I doubt very seriously that simply having the charges dismissed is an outcome you could expect in most circumstances. However, when I weigh the monetary, time, and emotional costs of conviction, I’d have to say that this was the best investment I've ever made. I could not recommend a professional, in any field, any higher than I do David.
