We know their
playbook.

WE WERE THE INSURANCE COMPANIES' LAWYERS

As former insurance defense lawyers for one of North Carolina’s largest law firms, Nick and Devlin bring everything they learned on the insurance company's side of the case, to your side of the case. 

After an accident, let our team of Wilmington personal injury attorneys handle the insurance company.  Prior to founding Horton & Mendez, Nick and Devlin handled personal injury lawsuits for big corporations and insurance companies. Now, we put our knowledge to work for you instead. Our familiarity with the insurance companies' tactics help us prevent clients from settling their personal injury claims for less than they deserve. 

Whether it's a car accident or workplace injury, our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to understanding your case and treating you as if you were our only client. We provide a tailored approach to each case. See why our clients trust us to help them recover compensation for their injuries. Schedule a free confidential consultation today.

Before founding Horton & Mendez, we handled personal injury cases from the insurance company’s side. That experience gives us unique insight into how insurance companies investigate, evaluate, and defend personal injury claims. We know their playbook. Now, we use our experience to help clients who have been injured obtain the compensation they deserve.

SANDRA H.

"I'm thoroughly satisfied with Devlin's work on my case. All hearings leading up to the trial were thoughtfully navigated and his trial strategy was thoughtfully developed. In addition to taking the time to ensure I was prepared for trial, Devlin's in court performance gave us the best chance for success. With Devlin managing my case, the pressure from this stressful process was reduced and I thank Devlin for this."
