Business North Carolina ("BNC") has recognized 12 Ward and Smith attorneys as Legal Elite for 2020.
Since 2002, the publication has honored top attorneys from around the state who were chosen by their peers in the awarded legal category. Only about three percent of attorneys are selected for this distinction each year.
The Ward and Smith attorneys recognized as 2020 Legal Elite are:
Marla Bowman, Young Guns
Angela Doughty, Intellectual Property
Paige Inman, Family and Young Guns
Evan Musselwhite, Young Guns
Jason Strickland, Construction
Devon Williams, Employment and Young Guns
Amy Wang also recognized by Business North Carolina as the top attorney in the Environmental category, meaning she received the most votes. She now joins Jim Creekman (retired), Brad Evans, and David Ward (retired) in the Legal Elite Hall of Fame. According to BNC's rules, she is no longer eligible to win in that same category.
