Karl Amelchenko is a Raleigh, NC trial attorney who has only represented injured people for the past decade. Karl has dedicated his practice to holding accountable insurance companies, large corporations and those who negligently and recklessly hurt others then refuse to take responsibility for their actions.

Karl earned his law degree from Wake Forest University School of Law and his undergraduate degrees from The University of North Carolina at Wilmington in formal logic and international political economy. While at Wake Forest, Karl was the captain of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Trial Team and received the Goldberg Award for Trial Advocacy upon graduation as the school’s top trial advocate in both terms of proficiency and ethics.

Karl is co-chair of the yearly American Association for Justice (AAJ) Trial Advocacy Competition in Raleigh, NC. Karl is deeply committed to Raleigh, The Triangle and North Carolina as a whole.

Karl handles complex litigation, primarily medical malpractice, catastrophic injury, truck and car accidents, whistle-blower and bad-faith insurance, and has secured multiple million dollar settlements and verdicts. Karl has held numerous leadership positions with AAJ and North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), including Chair of the Professional Negligence Section. Karl is AV-Rated by his peers and has been named a Super Lawyer every year since 2011.

Karl is currently working with hundreds of homeowners in the United States Virgin Islands who were defrauded out of insurance proceeds related to losses they sustained in Hurricanes Maria and Irene. In these actions, some of the largest insurers in the world have refused to pay hundreds of millions of dollars rightfully due to homeowners simply to better their bottom lines, leaving some of the most vulnerable among us to fend for themselves in unlivable conditions.
