Capitol District Law Offices is a law firm dedicated to helping wronged individuals and groups.

Attorney Reagan Weaver concentrates his practice in the areas of plaintiff's employment law, including discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful discharge. Weaver also counsels executives in their departures from employment, involving analysis of rights, proposed severance agreements, and negotiation of severance. In addition, Weaver represents people with personal injury from auto accidents or other mishaps, and government false claims whistleblowers.

He is an experienced certified mediator and arbitrator at the state and federal level. As a lawyer, Weaver strives to help resolve disputes through use of the most appropriate dispute resolution methods, depending on the circumstances.

Capitol District Law Offices was established in 1992 by Reagan Hale Weaver to help people protect and preserve their rights while resolving their disputes effectively. The firm believes that a lawyer is a professional dispute resolution expert who is more than just a litigator who knows his way around the courtroom. Capitol District Law Offices serves clients as advisor, negotiator, and counselor as well as courtroom advocate.

Mr. Weaver is willing to take controversial cases where principle is at issue. For example, he has tried one case defending a state employee who was fired for expressing his objections to the actions of a federal agency and another case representing an employee who was fired after objecting to unsafe working conditions.

Some clients will have cases that need to be tried in front of a judge or jury - either to prove a principle, to test the credibility of witnesses, or to have full compensation set by a trier of fact. Other cases may not need a regular trial. Capitol District Law Offices believes strongly in the wisdom of finding the most appropriate way to settle disputes. The most important dispute resolution technique used in the practice is negotiation. The firm has experience with the use of alternatives to regular trials, using arbitration, mediation and summary jury trial techniques to resolve cases.

In 1988, Edmisten left to return to an elected position as North Carolina's Secretary of State, and Weaver joined with Larry McBennett the next year to form a partnership known as Weaver & McBennett.

Financial Arrangements
Like most law firms, Capitol District Law Offices generally bases its fees on hourly rates. Often, appropriate matters are undertaken for a predetermined (contingency) fee.

We work with clients to create billing arrangements that make sense for each case. In some situations, we will not charge for our legal services unless there is a favorable settlement for our client. The client's responsibility would only be to pay for the expenses such as court filing fees, medical records, expert witnesses, depositions and other costs.

We maintain detailed records of time, expenses and other costs and provide our clients with itemized statements. Each client's situation is unique and we work with you to provide the most cost-effective representation.

The firm accepts both MasterCard and Visa.
