Gastonia Personal Injury Lawyer
If you’ve been injured in Gastonia or the greater Charlotte area and believe another person or company is responsible, you may be considering a Gastonia personal injury lawyer.
Riddle & Brantley may be able to help. We have extensive experience representing clients in Gastonia and have been fighting for justice for all North Carolinians since 1985.
According to the U.S. Census, the population in Gastonia has steadily increased for more than 3 decades, and more than 75,000 people now call the city home.
