Why CWL?

We’re different and different is good. When we decided in 2013 to open Church Watson Law, we knew we wanted to do things differently. Our backgrounds at large offices had taught us some good things but left us knowing there was a better way to be of service to our clients. Since 2013, we’ve constantly tweaked the way we deliver our services, looking for a way to provide concierge level service at a reasonable cost, making us available to those of all income levels. We’ve reimagined the practice of law.

We are a client-centered law firm for the 21st century. What does this mean for you, the client? Big Law service and experience without the uncertainty of the expense or lack of control. Our fees are now based on a fixed-fee model, allowing you to know with predictability and certainty what each step will cost you. At every step we can be involved as much or as little as you like. Through our limited representation services menu, you decide when you need our help and when you don’t. Of course, if you want us to hop in and handle everything, we can still do that. 

To make ourselves more accessible, we’ve completely disrupted the typical law practice model. There’s no big building with our name on it; we now have access to private meeting spaces in multiple locations for our attorneys in Lake Norman and Charlotte to meet you wherever you are. Through the use of technology, we’ve streamlined our process and made everything more readily accessible to you the client. You’ll have direct access to your attorney – no need to pay to talk to multiple people or tell your story multiple times. These changes have made Church Watson more accessible, efficient and affordable.

Combining our strengths and experience, we can represent you at every stage of your case,  regardless of what path it takes. We know that this team approach ensures that your needs are met from start to finish. Together with you, we will determine which approach is best for you and your particular situation.

At Church Watson you are our partner; let us know how we can help.
