KRISPEN CULBERTSON & TEAM. RESULTS ORIENTED REPRESENTATION IN COURT.
Mr. Culbertson has 26 years of legal experience and is a widely recognized Federal and State court litigator. He has achieved not guilty verdicts in three first degree murder jury trials, a rare and difficult accomplishment for a lawyer. In addition, he has won several trials in Federal Court in North Carolina. He is one of the elite percentage of attorneys that has a case reported in Federal Law Reports — the large law books that contain the controlling federal case law of the United States, and one of his federal trials is mentioned in two separately published books. Mr. Culbertson practices appellate law on both State and Federal levels, and is a member of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, where he has appeared in person in oral arguments four times. He was educated in law at Wake Forest University in North Carolina and at Oxford University in England. Krispen Culbertson has handled over 3,000 cases in the Federal and State courts of North Carolina, and has recently reoriented his practice to bring his trial experience to the area of Family Law — with a special emphasis on custody, in which his trial skills invariably prove useful.
WILLIAM F. MAY
William May is a trial attorney with more than 30 years of legal experience in both civil and criminal law. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, North Carolina, and the Wake Forest University School of Law. He concentrates in civil litigation.
In his career, Mr. Culbertson (with Mr. May’s help) has accomplished the following:
Three favorable jury verdicts in Murder cases in State Court (generally viewed among lawyers as the most difficult kind of case to win in law)
Numerous favorable jury verdicts in civil cases in State Court
Favorable jury verdict in Federal Court (Federal Court is generally regarded as much more difficult to win a jury verdict than State Court)
Four appearances before the Federal Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, with one case reported now as established caselaw in Federal Reports 3d. (One step below the Supreme Court of the United States.)
Favorable decisions obtained before the Appellate Courts of the State of North Carolina (the N.C. Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of North Carolina)
There are very few lawyers who have accomplished these things in a single career. It is a fact that the percentage of lawyers who have accomplished even two of these things together is extremely low, let alone all five. Mr. Culbertson does not believe there is any point to practicing law in State and Federal Court if a lawyer is not willing to take the “hits”, and to refuse to compromise a client’s best interests and needs.

“I hired K.E. Culbertson at the recommendation of a colleague for help with some corporate law matters. Serious Law took charge of my issues and handled my case with experience and knowledge. This firm is now my only go-to for corporate law.”
On the Federal level, the degree of difficulty of the cases handled goes as high as a Federal war crimes case. There is no type of case, including Internet Defamation, which is immune from winding up at the Federal Level.
We also handle white collar crimes. Criminal punishments have gotten gradually tougher over the past few years, and good legal representation is imperative to protect the accused and his or her record.
