Achieving Results For Over Four Decades
Since 1974, my practice has centered around helping victims of negligence and their families. Whether it is a catastrophic injury or wrongful death claim, rest assured that I am deeply committed to the results of your case.
Here at Richard Watson Law, PLLC I have built a reputation for myself and my firm in the local legal community. Over the course of many noteworthy trials and settlements, I have continued to find new ways to effectively try or mediate a case. My ability to out-prepare my opponents has allowed me to help clients like you achieve results.
Motivated By My Clients
This success earned me The Best Lawyers in America (the definitive guide to legal excellence in the U.S.) distinction in 2004 and every year since. In 2009, I was also recognized in the Best Lawyers in North Carolina. But despite these accolades, my accomplishments would mean little without the people I have helped.
For this reason, I am carefully selective of the cases I take. In doing this, I can provide my clients with not only my full attention but also every resource available to me and my firm.
A Life Of Service
I am a United States Army veteran who has earned a Commendation for Valor in Combat, Two Bronze Stars and an Air Medal.
After obtaining my J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law in Chapel Hill, I have built a career of more than 40 years of legal service. I have been selected to North Carolina Super Lawyers from 2008 to 2016, as well as in 2020. Also, I serve on the UNC Chapel Hill Alumni Board and I engage in multiple pro bono activities.
I am also an ordained Elder in the Westminster Church and Stephen Ministry in Durham, North Carolina.
