A Genuine First Class Lawyer
We had seen a lawyer in New Bern;. He discouraged us from pursuing our hardwood flooring case; thankfully, he referred us to Perry, Perry & Perry , Kinston, NC, the firm Josiah Corrigan works for. From the minute we met Josiah, we felt comfortable and confident he would serve us well. He was articulate, patient, knowledgeable and understood our concerns,

Excellent Job
Atty. Josiah Corrigan handled a case for me regarding a speeding ticket my son received while doing an errand for me. Several letters came in the mail of lawyers vying for this case. I looked them over and decided to go with someone in Kinston, NC. Sometimes it's all in a name. I went with Atty. Corrigan because his first name is Josiah, and I happen to have a nephew with the same name (spelled a little different) but still the same. The name Josiah means "the fire of the Lord" that also touched me. I read the other reviews regarding Atty. Corrigan and felt he was the right choice. He handled the case to my family's satisfaction. Thank you Atty. Corrigan for all your help.

More than just a job!
When I first met Mr. Corrigan, I was very unsure about hiring a lawyer. My experiences in the past with lawyers were not very good ones, which made me not trust him right from the start. Because of his great work and communication with me about my case, I quickly realized he is one that you can trust. He not only answered questions about my wreck case, but also every question I had about other legal situations. He is very fair and morally going to do the right thing, he wont take advantage of you for your money. I will go back for his help and hire him again in a heart beat!

Great Attorney!
Josiah is amazingly professional and responsible. We greatly appreciated his expertise and his wisdom in handling our case. He handled it beautifully. His calm but confident demeanor made all the difference. In our opinion, he went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Josiah to any friend and would not hesitate in hiring him again (hopefully we will never have the need!).
