Business law lawyers can help you with different aspects of your business law needs including compliance with the rules, statutes, codes, and regulations which govern commercial relationships, and provide a legal framework within which business may be conducted and managed.
Corporate Law Lawyers focus on the legal methods of obtaining an official charter or articles of incorporation from the state for an organization. If you are facing litigation, it's obvious you need to retain a corporate law lawyer right away.

Family law lawyers can help with a variety of family legal matters such as a contested or uncontested divorce, property divisions, establishing and modifying child support, child visitation and custody. Family law lawyers can also assist with domestic violence.
In a divorce, equitable distribution is one of the ways in which property is divided. In states with equitable distribution systems (like North Carolina) property acquired during a marriage is mutual property to be equitably divided between both spouses. Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean equal distribution, and ownership does not automatically split fifty-fifty. Rather, the distribution must be fair and just (equitable).

Real estate transactions are governed by federal statutes, as well as state statutory and common law. Real Estate Law encompasses these state a statutes and laws, as well as property law matters. Real estate law includes a wide variety of legal issues relating to acquiring, financing, developing, managing, constructing, leasing and selling commercial and residential real property of all kinds.
