With a litigation practice that extends well beyond the Triangle area, Judd represents a wide variety of clients in complex business, franchise, real property, and construction litigation matters, as well as condemnation/eminent domain matters. In addition, several of Judd’s clients utilize him as their outside general counsel, and he is also certified as a Civil Superior Court Mediator by the State of North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission.
Judd has been named by his peers and clients as a “Local Litigation Star” by Benchmark Litigation, the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. Benchmark Litigation is the culmination of extensive annual research, including comprehensive interviews with litigators and their clients, an examination of recent casework, and solicited professional and peer reviews. His status as a “Local Litigation Star” is a recognition by colleagues, clients and the broader market that he is “consistently reputable and effective,” and that he “plays a vital role in Manning Fulton’s bench strength.” In addition, Judd is honored to have been repeatedly selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® in the areas of Real Estate Litigation, Commercial Litigation, Eminent Domain and Condemnation Law, Land Use and Zoning Litigation, Appellate Practice, Construction Litigation, and Construction, for inclusion in North Carolina Super Lawyers as one of North Carolina’s top rated Business Litigation Attorneys, Construction Litigation Attorneys, and General Litigation Attorneys, and for inclusion in Business North Carolina Magazine as one of North Carolina’s Legal Elite in the areas of Business Litigation, Construction Law, and Litigation. Finally, Judd holds Martindale-Hubbell’s highest “AV” peer review rating, the peer review rating that recognizes attorneys who have reached high level of skill and integrity.
A big believer that members of the legal profession have an obligation to give back to the communities in which they work and live, Judd currently serves on the North Carolina Bar Association’s Litigation Section Council and the Wake County Bar Association/Tenth Judicial District Bench-Bar Committee, and is the former Chair of the Board of Trustees of Follow the Child Montessori School, as well as a former member of the North Carolina Rules Review Commission and the Carolina Ballet Board of Directors.
