Thank you for using Just Answer.

Just to avoid confusion, because I don't want you to think that this is a legal firm (and I'm not sure if that's what you're asking or not, but many customers do have that misunderstanding) -Just Answer is merely a question and answer site. We provide legal information, but cannot represent anyone, and do not give legal advice.

If you're asking how much lawyers charge in general, like every other profession, their fees will vary of course, depending on things like area of law they practice in, geographic location, certifications, years in practice, etc. Typically, a lawyer who handles civil litigation matters charges around the $300/hr range, on average.

The North Carolina Bar Association does have a lawyer referral service to help you find a qualified lawyer in your area, and they can set you up with a 30 minute consultation for $50. Alternatively, you can search for a lawyer on a site like which has attorney ratings and reviews as well.

If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'm happy to assist further. Otherwise, please remember to click on the stars to leave me a positive rating today, as that is the only way I am paid for my time and assistance. Thank you!
