The 2013 "Legal Elite" List Has Been Released
I am very honored to have been included among the Legal Elite for 2013. When Business North Carolina magazine surveyed more than 20,000 North Carolina attorneys, they asked only one question: "Whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?" Less than 3 percent of the state's attorneys were selected for this distinction. Among the talented and diligent lawyers named were 25 of my colleagues at Ward and Smith, as well as many other extraordinary lawyers across the state (some of whom I count among my good friends).
To those of you who take the time to participate in this and other peer surveys, I give you my sincere thanks. Please know that I always respond to this and other peer survey requests, and I am very pleased to recommend my friends who are exceptional professionals.
