The Plyler Law Firm, P.A. has been helping individuals throughout the Fayetteville, North Carolina area since 2000. We provide compassionate legal assistance for every case from beginning to end. We assist local residents in need of headstrong and knowledgeable representation. If a cooperative approach to negotiations with the other side or the insurance company does not work in our client's favor, we will take the case to the next level, including going to trial if necessary, to help you obtain the intended result. A Fayetteville attorney from our firm can help you successfully handle the following types of cases:

Personal Injury

Has an employer, another driver or other individual committed a negligent or reckless act that caused you to be injured? There is a good chance that you are entitled to compensation to help offset the damages sustained from the accident. Hiring an attorney who has the legal experience to represent you against the opposing party's counsel or insurance company can be the primary difference between a receiving a low or high settlement.

Driving While Intoxicated

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious offense in the state of North Carolina. Whether you have been charged with a first-time DWI or multiple DWIs, it is important to gain the legal representation of a Fayetteville attorney. You will likely face both civil and criminal repercussions.

Traffic Tickets

You can receive a traffic ticket for speeding, running a red light, running a stop sign, or hitting another vehicle and leaving the scene. Although some traffic offenses are more severe than others, our firm can help you fight any ticket. Even though a traffic ticket may not seem important enough to hire an attorney, there are many benefits to securing legal representation, such as to protect your driving record or reduce financial penalties.

Business Law

Business law is a complex area of law that requires the legal assistance of a knowledgeable attorney. We can help you handle issues involving construction law, unfair business practices, insurance disputes and breach of contracts. Our firm understands how much your business means to you, which is why we offer our experience to help you obtain the results you need!

Family Law

If you are at any stage of a divorce, you may realize that a lawyer is a valuable asset to have when navigating this legal process. A Fayetteville attorney can safeguard your personal assets and can ensure that all issues are properly handled. Child support, child custody and property division are all difficult aspects of divorce that can be handled by our firm.


Wills are powerful tools that can help individuals ensure that their desires for their property and burial are fulfilled after they pass on. A will dictates how the decedent's estate is to be handled per the decedent's wishes. His or her estate will go through the probate process and then be distributed based on the instructions in the will. Preparing a will is beneficial to you and the people you care about. Without a will, a judge who does not know you may make all property distribution decisions during probate.

Credit Card Defense

Credit card companies, banks, or secondary creditors will sometimes file a debt collection lawsuit against a debtor as a last-ditch effort to collect on monies owed. If you have been sued over your outstanding debt, our firm can help you avoid a summary judgment and fight for a fair resolution on your behalf. We can protect you against lawsuits over a wide variety of debts, including retail accounts, medical expenses, student loans, and auto repossessions.

Consumer Collections

Are you a creditor who is struggling to collect on owed debts from a non-compliant debtor? From overdue credit card accounts to debtor breach of contract, our collections attorneys can help you recover the money you are owed and ensure your rights are upheld in a court of law. From creating and serving collection notices to pursuing litigation, we have you covered.
