Community Law in Charlotte NC

In a city where rents are rapidly rising and wages for most essential workers remain stagnant, lawyers must work for the interests of those who historically have not had a voice. The Queen City Community Law Firm provides affordable high-quality representation for Charlotteans (and non-Charlotteans) who face eviction, foreclosure, wage theft, housing discrimination, employment discrimination, and fraudulent business practices. In addition to individual representation, we provide capacity building and organizational development services for community groups, neighborhood-based groups, unions (of all sorts) and activist organizations. The Queen City Community Law Firm is dedicated to transforming Charlotte into an equitable city that works for everyone. We are a law firm that serves the people.
