Four Offit Kurman Attorneys Named to Business North Carolina's Legal Elite 2022 List

Charlotte, North Carolina | January 10, 2022


Offit Kurman is pleased to announce that four of the firm's North Carolina attorneys have been selected for their inclusion in Business North Carolina's Legal Elite: Job One. Paul Baynard has been chosen for Bankruptcy; Elizabeth' Libby' James has been selected for Family Law; Kyle Frost and Anna Gray LeBlanc, both Family Law attorneys, have been recognized as Young Guns.

Each year, BNC invites active members of the N.C. State Bar to vote for their most-esteemed peers. Attorneys may not vote for themselves or other members of the Legal Elite Hall of Fame; votes for lawyers from another firm are weighted more heavily than votes for one's colleague at the same firm. This year, 870 lawyers were selected as Legal Elite, representing about 3% of the state's 28,000 active attorneys.
