Smith Moore LLP announces the addition of three attorneys to its Greensboro office. Heather Howell Wright, James Faucher and Crystal Bowman Crews will join the firm’s litigation team. This announcement comes two weeks after the firm released news of five attorneys hired for its Raleigh office.
“In the past month alone, we have added nearly 10 attorneys to our North Carolina offices,” said Steve Earp, managing partner of Smith Moore. “We are continuing to aggressively seek opportunities to grow and eagerly anticipate the important role these attorneys will play in working toward this goal.”
Wright earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and political science from the University of the South – often referred to as Sewanee – and a law degree from Wake Forest University School of Law, where she was awarded the Order of the Coif, served as an executive editor of the Wake Forest Law Review, and actively participated in Moot Court. After completing law school, she served as law clerk to the Honorable Chief Judge N. Carlton Tilley, Jr., of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina. Wright held several positions in education, including teaching social studies and language arts at two Triad-area middle schools and working in the Baltimore City Public Schools with Teach for America, before redirecting her career toward law.
Faucher earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and politics from Wake Forest University and a law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Va., from which he graduated with honors. During law school, he was a member of the Washington and Lee Law Review and completed an externship with the Public Prosecutors Program of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia.
Crews received a bachelor’s degree in biology and political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She earned her law degree from Wake Forest University School of Law, where she served on the editorial staff of the Wake Forest Law Review, participated in the Moot Court, and was awarded the Order of the Coif.
