Seventeen Smith Moore Attorneys Honored as The Best Lawyers in America

November 25, 2002

GREENSBORO – Smith Moore LLP is proud to announce that 17 lawyers in the firm’s North Carolina offices were recently selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2003-2004, the preeminent legal referral guide in the United States (Copyright 2002 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).

Attorneys from all four of Smith Moore’s practice areas were selected as Best Lawyers. Their practice concentrations vary from environmental law to mergers and acquisitions, from health care law to intellectual property and from real estate law to employment litigation.

From Smith Moore’s Greensboro Office, 15 attorneys were selected as Best Lawyers, including Evan Kent Auberry, Harold N. Bynum, Herbert O. Davis, Alan W. Duncan, Stephen W. Earp, Martin N. Erwin, Bynum M. Hunter, James A. Medford, Charles E. Melvin, Jr., Maureen Demarest Murray, Larry B. Sitton, Thomas S. Stukes, Julianna C. Theall, E. Garrett Walker, and Jeri L. Whitfield.

J. Donald Cowan, Jr. and Robert L. Wilson, Jr. from Smith Moore’s Raleigh office also were chosen to receive this honor.

The 2003-2004 edition is the ninth edition of The Best Lawyers in America. Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which 15,000 leading attorneys throughout the country cast more than half a million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Less than 3 percent of all attorneys in the country were selected for this honor.
