The Sparrow Law Firm in Raleigh, North Carolina, is dedicated to protecting the rights of accident victims and individuals charged with serious crimes. The firm is committed to devoting time, attention and experience to each client.

Founded by attorney Michelle Sparrow, a former Assistant District Attorney who defends clients facing criminal charges, we know how to evaluate crime scene evidence, identify questionable testimony, and spot errors in police work. For clients who are dealing with the effects of serious personal injuries, we work hard to help them obtain as much compensation as possible to help cover lost wages, hospital bills, future medical expenses and other costs. We are well-prepared to help you as well.

I have been practicing law for over 10 years in North Carolina in the areas of criminal law, personal injury and wrongful death. I counsel clients living in Chatam, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, and Wake Counties, including the cities of Chapel Hill, Durham, Fayetteville, Raleigh, and Sandford.

I have been practicing law since 1992 and worked as an Assistant District Attorney for 8 years. Being an Assistant District Attorney gave me the skill and knowledge to thoroughly prepare for all of my clients’ cases as if they were going to trial, and that effort helps yield results for my clients. I am ready, willing, and able to take cases all the way to trial, in order to ensure the best results for my clients.

I have experience and knowledge in representing clients who have been injured by the careless, reckless, negligent, or intentional acts of others. After working as an Assistant District Attorney, I was a personal injury litigator in a North Carolina personal injury law firm. Ten plus years of settlement negotiation and litigation experience has allowed me to craft creative legal arguments that will best serve my clients' needs.

I am a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the Wake County Bar Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers (Tenth Judicial District), the North Carolina Association of Trial Lawyers, the Dispute Resolution Commission, and the Better Business Bureau.

Firm Overview

Wake County Criminal Defense Attorneys • Accidental Injury Lawyers

Sparrow Law Firm

Our founding attorney, Michelle Sparrow is a former assistant district attorney and experienced litigator who has handled hundreds of trials. In the area of criminal defense, she is intimately familiar with how to evaluate police reports, the handling of evidence, and eyewitness testimony. Our firm can often identify when information is being distorted or withheld on the part of police or witnesses, and am able to weaken the story told by the prosecution against my client. Our experience with the criminal justice system led to the ability to investigate not only criminal matters but also determine the cause of injury cases like accidents and the ability to expose negligence on the part of drivers, doctors, lawyers and nursing homes.

Providing Expertise, Building Cases, Establishing Facts

Today's court room can be a technically sophisticated place -- especially in personal injury and criminal cases where evidence must be analyzed and evaluated. To establish the claims of my client, we regularly work and consult with the following kinds of experts when building clients' cases:

  • Accident reconstructionists
  • Skid mark analysts
  • Medical doctors
  • Forensic specialists
  • Lab technicians
  • Hand writing experts
  • Computer experts

Practice Areas

Wake County, North Carolina Criminal Defense & Personal Injury Lawyers

Whether you live, work, go to school, or are just visiting the area, the Sparrow Law Firm is well-prepared to help you with a wide range of legal issues. We handle legal matters throughout Wake, Durham and New Hanover counties as well as surrounding areas.

Our firm was started with the commitment to provide accident victims and individuals charged with serious crimes the best representation possible. Founded by attorney Michelle Sparrow, a former assistant prosecutor who understands how to evaluate evidence, identify questionable eyewitness testimony, and negotiate effectively with the other side, we can help you regardless of whether you are facing criminal charges or have been seriously injured in an accident.

Experienced Legal Representation

Sparrow Law Firm offers a hands-on approach focused on meeting clients' unique needs and goals in a variety of legal matters, including:

Traffic offenses and Criminal Defense

  • Speeding Tickets and moving violations: Traffic tickets not only involve time and money initially, they will also drive your car insurance rates up in the long run and add points to your license. We will help you fight the ticket and save yourself from the hassle and expense of these consequences.
  • Driver's license suspensions: Losing your driver's license can be crippling. With your driving privileges comes the ability to commute to and from work or school, the freedom to run errands as you please and the opportunity to transport your family. Without your license, your normal routine becomes anything but. We can fight to help you get your license back and/or prevent it from being suspended in the first place.
  • Misdemeanors and felonies: We have handled cases ranging from simple traffic violations to assault, domestic violence, and murder.
  • Alcohol offenses: We are prepared to zealously defend your constitutional rights if you have been accused of any alcohol-related offense, such as selling alcohol to minors, underage usage, fraudulent IDs, or driving while intoxicated.
  • Drug offenses: We can help you explore your options after any drug-related arrest, including marijuana possession, drug distribution, or drug trafficking.
  • Larceny: We defend people charged with shoplifting, credit card fraud, check fraud, embezzlement, robbery (both common law robbery and armed robbery), obtaining property by false pretenses and other forms of larceny.
  • Expungements: We can help you determine if a Petition for Expunction is a viable option for you and will file the necessary paperwork.

Professional malpractice and Personal injury

  • Legal malpractice: Did you lose valuable legal options because an attorney failed to file your claim and the statute of limitations has run? Contact our law office to discuss the parameters of legal malpractice.
  • Medical malpractice: If you have been seriously injured as a result of medical malpractice, we will aggressively represent you and your family. We also help clients whose loved ones were neglected or abused at nursing homes.
  • Car, truck and aviation accidents: We vigorously pursue compensation for victims of car accidents, 18-wheeler rollovers, and aviation accidents. We also file wrongful death lawsuits for surviving family members.

Out-of-State Residents

If you are from out-of-state and find yourself dealing with a legal matter in North Carolina, we can aggressively protect your rights. We are committed to being your advocate in the courtroom and may be able to keep you from having to appear at court hearings; many cases can be handled by a Waiver of Appearance. We offer this same assistance to clients who live in outstate North Carolina, where travel back to the Raleigh area would be a hardship.

Ready to Fight for You

We are here to help you with any manner of criminal defense or personal injury matters. We are ready to fight on your behalf. Contact Sparrow Law Firm today to schedule a free initial consultation.
