Wilmington’s Warm Weather

Have you noticed how nice it’s been outside the last few days?  Weather.com says it’s 76 degrees outside as I type this.  It’s beautiful weather and a lot of people are getting outside to enjoy it.

We’ve got a lot of beaches in the Wilmington area: Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Topsail Island, Holden Beach, Kure Beach.  The beaches are great, but between the influx of tourists and everyone trading their winter jackets (because we don’t often need coats around here) and pants for bathing suits, temptation flares up and we see a big increase in infidelity investigations.

If you suspect your spouse of having an affair, contact us.  We’ve got years of experience in helping people get the answers they need.  We know it’s not easy to talk to a stranger about something so personal, but we’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable, help you through the tough times and point you in the right direction depending on the decisions you make with whatever evidence we get for you.

So while spring and summer are great times of year to be living in southeastern North Carolina, if your gut tells you that something isn’t right in your relationship, come talk to us, because peace of mind is priceless.

Questions for Wilmington Business Owners

When I was in law enforcement, a thief was a thief.  Over the course of the the last several years, I have noticed a problematic trend with former law enforcement officers stealing money from people they work with, from people who know and trust them and count them as friends.

Making things worse, local authorities don’t seem to be willing to do anything about it.

My question is this, local Wilmington business owner: How many of you have had a person steal from you, only to be told by law enforcement or the district attorney’s office that it’s a civil case and you’ll have to sue the person who stole from you?

This is not an excuse to sit around complaining, but there are questions I sincerely want to discuss with other local business owners.

How many of you have been stolen from and found the police or DA unwilling to help?

How much was stolen from you?

What were you told by law enforcement or the district attorney’s office?

I’m trying to find out how much of a problem this is.  If you’ve experienced the same issue as other people I’ve talked to, please contact me.
