Case Results

Maginnis Howard is a civil litigation firm. We do not deal with traffic tickets, or handle real estate closings. We advocate for our clients’ rights in the Courtrooms of North Carolina. Whether it’s suing an insurance company that has wrongfully denied responsibility for a serious injury, defending a small business against a competitor, collecting funds owed to a company, fighting for the rights of an employee that has been unlawfully terminated or protecting individuals from unlawful actions by creditors, we’ll help guide you through the uncertainties and complexities of civil litigation.

The cases below are simply illustrations of the work we have done. Our success in previous cases does not mean that we will obtain a similar result for you or your business. Each case is its own battle and depends upon its facts, the parties involved, and any number of other considerations. The only thing we can promise is that we will work tirelessly to help you or your company.
