Biography

Since 1992 I have focused my practice primarily on criminal defense. In 1998, along with Seth Blum, I founded the Raleigh Law Firm of Kurtz & Blum PLLC. At Kurtz & Blum we help people who have been accused of crimes from minor traffic cases and DWIs all the way up through high profile murder trials. On our civil side we help people who have been harmed by the negligence of another such as in car wrecks, nursing home negligence cases and legal malpractice cases. We round out our practice by helping people with family law situations like child custody, separation, divorce and adoption. At Kurtz & Blum, we don't represent government, we don't represent big business and we don't represent insurance companies. At Kurtz & Blum, we're in your corner.
