2022 Business North Carolina Legal Elite® Announced with Seven Tharrington Smith Attorneys Featured

Raleigh, N.C., January 4, 2022 — Tharrington Smith, LLP is excited to announce that seven attorneys have been named to Business North Carolina’s 2022 Legal Elite®. This prestigious list is entirely peer-nominated, and fewer than 4% of the state’s 28,000 active attorneys are nominated. It is a huge honor and wonderful achievement for each attorney listed.

“It is an honor to be recognized by my peers as one of North Carolina’s “elite” criminal defense lawyers,” said nominee Russell D. Babb.

As a strictly North Carolina-based list, it remains as the only yearly list that gives every active lawyer in the state a chance to participate. Lawyers are asked, “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?” Those attorneys with the most nominations from their peers are honored with inclusion in the Legal Elite class in 16 categories of law.

“We have helped the business community solve difficult problems for many years. Since 2004, other lawyers have recognized our work among the Business North Carolina “Legal Elite” representing companies, executives, and professionals. We remain grateful for this honor and focused on excellent results,” nominee F. Hill Allen said.

Tharrington Smith, LLP lawyers were named in two categories, criminal defense and family law, with two attorneys, Wade M. Smith and Carlyn Poole, earning Hall of Fame nominations.

“I am honored to be recognized by Legal Elite, especially since it involves being chosen by my peers. My reputation among my fellow colleagues is of the utmost importance to me,” added nominee Evan Horwitz.
