Raleigh, N.C. (March 23, 2016) – Raleigh-based law firm Smith Debnam today announced that Smith Debnam Partner and Board Certified Family Law Specialist Alicia Jurney has been elected to serve a three-year term as Council Member of the Dispute Resolution Section of the North Carolina Bar Association. The Dispute Resolution Section addresses issues that are relevant to both mediation and arbitration, and acts as a resource for practicing mediators, arbitrators, and attorneys who utilize alternative dispute resolution.
Jurney represents clients in child custody, child support, domestic violence, equitable distribution, and alimony matters. Her practice encompasses all levels of jurisdiction within North Carolina, including jury trial experience and appeals to both the North Carolina Court of Appeals and Supreme Court. She is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association where she serves on several committees. Jurney also serves as Chair of the Board of Directors for Haven House Services, a Raleigh non-profit community support agency. She is also a collaborative attorney with The Integrated Accountability and Collaborative Transparency Program (IACT), developed as a pathway to medical disclosure and transparency in resolving patient/provider conflicts resulting from medical error.
The Dispute Resolution Section presents one of the few opportunities for North Carolina dispute resolution professionals to share experiences and learn from one another. The section works with the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission, which is responsible for certifying and regulating mediators in North Carolina State Court programs, thereby enabling section members input into policies that affect all mediators. Affiliate membership in the Dispute Resolution Section is open to non-lawyer mediators.
Founded in 1972, Smith Debnam is a leading, multidiscipline law firm of choice for institutions and private individuals who value a responsible and caring approach from an experienced team of legal professionals. Representing clients in Banking, Financial Services, Equipment Leasing, Construction, Mortgage Servicing, Manufacturing, and Professional Services industries, the firm has extensive experience in state and federal courts across a diverse list of practice areas, including Corporate and Business Law, Business Litigation, Commercial Bankruptcy and Reorganization, Foreclosures, Creditor Representation, Collections, Commercial & Residential Real Estate, Construction Law, Employment Law, Equipment Leasing & Finance, Family Law, Elder Law & Advocacy Services, Estate Planning & Administration, and Probate Litigation.
