Great Job Mr. Tew
Hired Mr. Tew for representation against wrongful termination and discrimination. From the beginning he was professional, thorough and sympathetic of my situation. He gave a run down of what to expect at each stage of the case and maintain fluent communication. I was appreciative of all his effort and patiences with my case because I'm a CDL Driver and was constantly on the road and needed more time to give or get the information he need. My case did not go to trial but was settled with an agreed amount. I was happy with his service and would recommend him to anyone.

Very understanding and knowledgeable
I had what most would consider to be a case that wasn't worth high dollars-however to me I had used savings that I could ill afford to spend on issues that were performed illegally and I wanted to see if I could recoup anything. Mr. Tew treated my case as if it was as important to him as it was to me. I would recommend him without reservation.

A Fighter for the Rights of the Employee
I cannot say enough great things about Mr. Tew. I was going through an unemployment case against a former governmental employer. Prior to obtaining his services, I was found it difficult to get an attorney to take my case due to my former employer being a governmental agency. To add to that, I found it difficult to find an attorney that would take the time to listen to me or review the evidence I had to prove that I had not violated any policies or participated in any misconduct. He listened and reviewed all of the evidences I had. In doing this, he become very familiar with the essential parts of my case. Once he took my case, his billing was more than fair. I say this because when I compare what he charged me to the service he provided, I was more than pleased. I never felt like I had to chase Mr. Tew down to have him call me back or provide necessary information within the deadlines. In addition, he showed concern for how my termination had impacted me both personally and professionally. I won my case, but had I not, I would have been satisfied just knowing I had someone willing to fight what I considered to be my Goliath. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is seeking an attorney who is professional, knowledgeable, prepared, and willing to fight with you and for you. There are no guarantees to the outcome of any case, but one thing for certain, you would be more than satisfied with the degree of service you receive if you consult and/or hire him as your attorney. I truly cannot thank him enough for the excellent service he provided to me.

Employee Pay
Clark was hired to go after back pay that was owed to me. We had a consultation and he was very knowledgeable in this area and provided me with several scenarios that could take place. He was honest with me as to the potential outcome. We have been through mediation at this point and the result was worth the lawsuit, however, not all we wanted. It wasn't because of Clark's fight. We had a difficult situation and I feel he presented all of the facts and represented me very well.

Extremely thorough and understanding
Clark was an excellent attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking representation in the fields he specializes. His attention to detail, and timely response to my calls/emails made it feel as if my case (and I) mattered. He had excellent knowledge on the subject matter, and gave me advice that was realistic. My experience with Clark led me to believe he is practical, honest and trustworthy. I would recommend him, and definitely utilize his services again, if the situation ever warranted. Thanks, Clark!

Clark Tew - Lawyer that will fight for you!
Clark is an amazing lawyer, very professional and extremely knowledgeable. It's a shocking experience when a spouse is fired especially when we thought it was a wrongful termination. NC being a "Right to Work" state we didn't think we had a chance. We went to Clark and after listening to us thought so as well and took the case! His helpfulness and communication with us after first meeting him with other questions we had were always promptly answered via phone or email. He was able to settle this matter with a result that we were very happy with.

Amazing man
Before I met Clark many people didn't want to hear me out. As soon as I sat down Clark listened. He cared. Clark is a great lawyer, an amazing person and he truly cares about his clients. Best money I will ever spend. If you're looking for a lawyer who has a sense of justice and will stick it out with you... This is your guy. You won't feel alone in your situation anymore.

Outstanding service
He represented me in a case that was extremely difficult. He was very efficient and always was at hand if I had questions via email or phone. He explained the process and procedures to a laymen and helped me understand what was happening at each step of the case. I would recommend him to my family and friends without question.

Superb performance and representation!
Mr. Tew worked with our family related to an employment issue. Mr. Tew was thorough in his advise and in his representation. Most importantly to our family, was Mr. Tew's light hearted personality. He made everyone feel comfortable, speaking to each us with respect, but in a manner we could relate and understand. He doesn't fall into the typical "stiff shirt" persona and it made the relationship with him much more personal. Mr. Tew is genuine in his care for his clients. He follows through with all he promises to do and he is fair in his fees. We will most certainly recommend (and have done so) and use Mr. Tew's services in the future, should the need arise!

"I reached out to Clark for his assistance in researching a North Carolina contracts issue for me. The speed with which he returned a helpful, well-sourced answer to my question was very impressive. While I am a government attorney licensed and based in New York, I am originally from North Carolina. As a result, I regularly have people from back home asking me for help that I am not allowed to give them. I've known Clark personally for many years, and he is always my first suggestion to anyone looking for help with a civil matter in his area. I trust Clark's judgment immensely, both on a legal and personal level, and I recommend him without question."
