Raleigh, N.C. (Jan. 8, 2018) – Smith Debnam announced today that Partner and Family Law Attorney Lynn Wilson McNally has been named to Business North Carolina’s 2018 Legal Elite, a high-profile listing of the state’s top lawyers. This is her second year in a row to receive this recognition.
Business North Carolina Magazine selects the Legal Elite each year via a statewide poll, in which active members of the North Carolina Bar Association are asked the following question: “Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?” Voters may not vote for themselves, and can only select members of their firms if they also select out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily. Since winners are not chosen by the publication’s editors, but by the state’s lawyers, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite has become the model for other awards and lists.
Lynn is a Board Certified Family Law Specialist, certified by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. She handles a variety of family law matters, including separation and divorce, child custody and support, alimony, equitable distribution, domestic violence, termination of parental rights, legitimation, and others. She frequently authors articles to provide clients with insight into current family law issues. Lynn is also a Family Financial Settlement Mediator, certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission. She is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Family Law Section, the Wake County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, and the Family Law Practice Group of Primerus International Society of Law Firms.
