Criminal, Traffic, and DWI defense is the primary, if not exclusive, thrust of my practice.  I grew up in Weaverville, NC, a small town just north of Asheville.  As a kid, I played baseball and football, went hunting and fishing, and was fortunate to enjoy a very close family.  I worked my way through college and law school, graduating from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 1998, and passing the North Carolina State Bar Exam that fall. As I attended law school while interning and volunteering with different firms and organizations, I had the opportunity to look into the legal culture of some larger firms.  While I had considered making a move to the "big city", and examined many different areas of law before beginning my course of study, I was naturally drawn back to areas of law that us regular folk might find ourselves.  I think I knew all along that I wanted to open my own law firm, partly because I did not like what I saw in other law firms- an impersonal service, frequently a lack of compassion for the clients, and often disdain for criminal defendants who may not have deserved such treatment. 

At the Curtis Sluder Law Firm, you will not find any of that. I know what it is like to have to work hard all week to support your family, week in and week out. I know what it is like to build up a life that you are proud of and want to protect what you have built. I know what it is like to enjoy life, and know how much criminal or even traffic problems can disturb your routine and wreck your quality of life.  No one plans on getting arrested.  No one plans on a DWI. No one plans on getting traffic charges.  I try to help my clients get their plans, and their life, back on track, with the least amount of disruption in their lives possible.

Best representation for the cheapest price.
The title basically says it all. They got me the BEST deal for the CHEAPEST price on my speeding tickets. You can't ask for anything more than that. I rarely leave online reviews (maybe 2 times a year tops) but I felt inspired to share my positive experience. Thank you!

MY GAMBLE PAID OFF
Hiring a new lawyer is a risk. You have no idea what you are getting. I hired Vijay Nathan @ Curtis Sluder to fight a traffic ticket. I thought I had a good case, but who knows? Mr. Nathan carried the ball for a touchdown. He got the case dismissed. I was delighted at the outcome and, overall, very satisfied by the firm's client service. Gamble paid off!

when you need him In a hurry, Sluder
I was in a hurry to find an attorney that would take my case and appear in court for me fast. I’d let time slip away and when I called Mr Sluder’s office, they jumped right in and took care of me. My Mom deeply appreciates all they have done for me and worked with her.

Excellent representation!
Mr. Sluder handled my speeding ticket with professionalism and efficiency. Fees were more than fair and the results were even better. I'm recommending them to anyone who need legal help.

No one Compares
I had just approached one week till my court date. I called and called around. Everyone wanted so much money for a 15 mph speeding ticket. I was then referred to curtis slunder law firm. Where they not only charged me over a hundred dollars LESS than others. They where the most professional, but most kind hearted people you could ask for. They took my case and was even able to get a full dismissal. I would recommend this firm to anyone!! Great job, and thanks for caring about the people you serve. OUTSTANDING!!!!

Sluder Firm Gets Results Period
If you have a NC traffic ticket, at least get a lawyer's advice! I hired the Sluder Firm. I give them a ten plus rating. It is not just the good lawyers. The staff is friendly and don't mind your questions. Most importantly, they get results! Their site has free advice about the consequences of uncontested tickets. And the firm serves many NC Counties.

Speeding Ticket Relief
Attorney Vijay Nathan and staff answered all my questions promptly, regarding my case, in a friendly and professional manner, and the cost was reasonable too. What a comfort it was knowing I wouldn't have to travel from Durham to appear in court. I would highly recommend them for their services. It really helped me while traveling through the Western part of North Carolina. You never know when you may need someone in that area, as I did, being only one exit away from my destination.

damn good lawyer
I've known curtis for many years. He has been a great and loyal friend. Plus he has always kept me out of any trouble I put myself in. You would be a fool to not hire anyone representing Curtis slider associates.
