            When I first started practicing law, everything about my practice was litigation.  However, since becoming certified as a Superior Court Mediator, a Family Financial Mediator, and a Parenting Coordinator, I see litigation differently.  Both mediation and litigation are methods of resolving disputes.  With litigation, other people decide your dispute.  With mediation, the parties decide the outcome of the dispute.  Recognizing this has made me a more result-oriented lawyer.  I want to help my clients get through difficult times with as little stress and cost as possible while still seeking to achieve my clients’ goals.  I strongly believe that a lawyer can be a strong and effective advocate for his clients while still maintaining a professional and courteous approach to the practice of law.  As a Parenting Coordinator, I aid parents in high conflict custody matters in their co-parenting efforts while maintaining a focus on the best interest of the children involved.  I currently focus my practice on the areas of Family Law, Mediation, Parenting Coordination, Collaborative Family Law, Foreclosures and Collections.

David was an exceptional attorney who handled my case with professionalism, sensitivity, and genuine care for his clients which you rarely see. He was candid in the potential outcomes of the case while displaying his wide array of skills both in and out of the courtroom. I would highly recommend him, as well as use the firm again in the future if necessary.

Family Attorney | Mar 07
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"David is a strong advocate for his clients. He uses his experience as both a family law attorney and mediator to appropriately assess the issues of each case. I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again."
Mediation Attorney | Apr 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have a domestic practice in Pitt County, so I don't generally have cases with Mr. Irvine as opposing counsel. However, I have used him for family financial mediations. He is creative and effective, and it is obvious he enjoys the alternative dispute resolution process."
