Civil Litigation

The civil litigation attorneys at Harbinson Parker combine their significant practical knowledge and track record of success in handling various types of civil cases. David Parker and Carey Parker are the attorneys who lead the firm in this area of practice. Together they have over 50 years of legal experience and are well versed in the complexities in civil court procedures. The litigation team has extensive experience as trial lawyers in both state and federal courts of North Carolina and have also represented clients in national arbitration panels and before governmental agencies.

The litigation team’s knowledge, skills and experience as trial lawyers have resulted in multimillion-dollar judgments in favor of their clients. Whether they are litigating issues related to land disputes, construction law, contract disputes, or estate / probate disputes, they give their clients’ cases their full attention and dedication to achieve the best possible outcome.

The litigation attorneys also recognize that not every case is meant for the courtroom and in certain cases use their skills to resolve disputes in mediation or arbitration. These attorneys view themselves as counselors at law advising their clients on the best strategies to resolve their client’s case.

The litigation team has successfully handled appeals in the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the North Carolina Supreme Court. Carey Parker draws from the lessons he learned while working in the chambers of Justice Sam J. Ervin IV at the NC Court of Appeals. David and Carey successfully handled an appeal to the North Carolina Supreme Court for land litigation clients in 2023 involving Duke Powers authority to govern the waters and shores of Lake Norman.
