2023 Legal Elite: Top N.C. lawyers as selected by their peers

Jocks, nerds, hoodlums and other groups make up the woodwork of every high school, including those attended by the best lawyers in North Carolina. We asked this year’s winners of Business North Carolinas Legal Elite to recall their favorite friends’ group, or an enjoyable high school activity. The answers to those and other questions provide insight into this talented crew. 


 

It’s the 22nd class of Legal Elite, which honors lawyers chosen by their peers. Business North Carolina contracted DataJoe Research to facilitate an online peer-voting and internet research process. About 1,000 lawyers received votes, with those receiving the most getting recognition in 16 specialties as Hall of Fame members.

The responses have been edited for length and clarity. Previous Hall of Fame members are listed by their firm at the time of selection, unless otherwise noted.

DataJoe Research is a Boulder, Colo.-based software and research company specializing in data collection and verification, and conducts various nominations across the nation on behalf of publishers. DataJoe confirmed that each published winner had, at time of review, a current, active license status with the appropriate state regulatory board. If unable to find evidence of a lawyer’s active registration with the state regulatory board, that lawyer was excluded from the list. In addition, we checked available public sources to identify lawyers disciplined for an infraction by the state regulatory board. They were excluded from the list. DataJoe presented the tallied results to Business North Carolina for its final review
and adjustments.

DataJoe and Business North Carolina recognize that there are many talented lawyers who are not listed. This is a subset of talented professionals across the state. Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of responding lawyers in North Carolina. DataJoe thoroughly ensures fair voting but the company understands that the results of this survey nomination and internet research campaign are not an objective metric.

DataJoe does not assume, and hereby disclaims, any liability to any person for any loss or damage caused by errors or omissions herein whether such errors or omissions result from negligence, accident, or any other cause.
