The people of Eastern North Carolina are among the hardest-working people in the world. But when one thing goes wrong — a serious car accident, a disabling work injury, a loss of everyday function — their dreams grind to a halt, unless they have a skilled, caring lawyer on their side.
A doctor we know put it this way: "Hardworking people wear out faster." They wear out their backs, their knees, their eyes and other parts.
Long ago, it was considered tough luck if you fell or were knocked down. Today, we have a set of options that provide an effective safety net:
- Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits
- Personal injury claims
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Wrongful death claims
- Workers' compensation claims
At O'Malley Tunstall PLLC, we are skilled in mixing and matching these options so that you don't keep falling forever.

Our firm came into being when Jimmie Keel, a true lawyer for the people, opened his solo law practice in 1983. It was to be a law firm that stood up not for the wealthy and privileged but for the average person in need of protection from injury, negligence and disability.
In 1995, Susan M. O'Malley joined the firm and was soon named a partner. She is a Board Certified Disability Specialist in Social Security Disability law by the North Carolina State Bar. In 2000, Joseph P. Tunstall joined the firm and became a partner in 2006. Our firm continues the ideal of treating every client's case as important. We truly try to care for every case in our office.
We remain that kind of firm to this day.
We invite you to review our website and our different practice areas. As you can see, they are all about one thing: helping people who have been knocked down to get back up. We care for your case so that you can worry about caring for your injury or disability.
