Our firm was founded over ten years ago in Washington, D.C. by Wilmington, N.C. native Stuart M. Paynter and found near immediate success and national recognition. Within only a few years, Stuart opened a second office in North Carolina.

Paynter Law was founded in response to an identified need for quality, dedicated representation for consumers, businesses, and individuals. Our attorneys possess top-notch legal training, a diverse skill set, essential litigation experience, and are licensed in states across the U.S. including North Carolina, California, New York, the District of Columbia, New Mexico, and Tennessee.


We represent consumers, businesses, and individuals in matters including, but not limited to, consumer protection, pharmaceutical litigation, contract disputes, antitrust litigation, and more. We represent clients solely on a contingency fee basis, even with our complex litigation matters. Additionally, we understand that litigation can be expensive, especially when it comes to expert costs as well as discovery and trial expenses. We advance those costs on behalf of our clients, unlike many other firms that require the clients to pay for costs up front or retain expensive litigation financing.


We have extensive experience working with complex, document-intensive cases. To manage these cases, we utilize innovative software that increases our effectiveness and efficiency when it comes to document review, e-discovery, productions, metadata analysis, and coding. Additionally, we have experience working with forensic and IT experts when needed to identify, recover, and analyze documents and information stored on protected devices such as encrypted servers and hard drives.
