Eleven Manning Fulton attorneys have been recognized by their peers for inclusion in the 2018 edition of Business North Carolina’s “Legal Elite,” a listing of the state’s top lawyers in 14 business-related categories.

Business North Carolina is the state’s leading business magazine.  Each year, the publication sends ballots to members of the North Carolina Bar Association who reside in North Carolina.  Voters are asked one question: “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?” Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves, and may only select members of their own firms if they also select out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with out-of-firm votes weighted more heavily.  Attorneys receiving the most votes in their respective categories become permanent members of the “Legal Elite” Hall of Fame.

The Manning Fulton attorneys named to Business North Carolina’s 2018 “Legal Elite” are:

Michael T. Medford for Appellate

William B. Gwyn, Jr. for Business

Kevin A. Prakke for Business

Judson A. Welborn for Construction

Michael T. Medford for Litigation

Douglas J. Short for Real Estate

Stephen T. Byrd for Tax and Estate Planning


In addition, Manning Fulton attorneys Barry D. Mann is a Hall of Fame inductee in the Real Estate category.
