In Features, January 2016

When we asked this year’s Legal Elite winners what they would be if not a lawyer, many found the question perplexing. For people at the top of their profession, it’s hard to imagine working in another field. While some immediately called to mind childhood dreams, previous jobs, or favorite pastimes or hobbies, one theme was constant: They are all passionate about their jobs and their firms. 

“I absolutely love what I do,” says Jean Sutton Martin, a Wilmington-based attorney who received the most votes in the litigation category. “My new firm, my clients and my cases are my priorities. You may beat me because the law is on your side, but you will never beat me because you knew more about my case. I am constantly learning, and that makes life fun and interesting.”

“I don’t know what else I would do, work-wise, if I weren’t a lawyer,” says Sean Sullivan, the top vote-getter for environmental law and a partner at the Raleigh office of Troutman Sanders LLP. “I think this is what I was meant to be.”

The selection process for this year’s winners began in June, when ballot alerts were emailed to more than 23,000 members of the N.C. Bar. Lawyers were asked to select peers they feel are at the top of their fields. Online ballots were made available for a limited time, and the rules were simple: Lawyers could not vote for themselves, and they were only allowed to vote for a member of their own firm if they also selected an attorney from an outside firm in the same category. More weight was given to outside votes.

The top vote-getters in each field, with the exception of Young Guns, will be elevated to the Legal Elite Hall of Fame and are ineligible to win again in the same category. This year, fewer than 3% of the state’s lawyers, 644 in all, made the list.
