Four Smith Debnam Attorneys Recognized in Business North Carolina’s “2017 Legal Elite”

January 05, 2017

Raleigh, N.C. (January 5, 2016)Raleigh-based law firm Smith Debnam today announced that Business North Carolina Magazine has named four Smith Debnam attorneys to the magazine’s 2017 Legal Elite, a high-profile listing of the state’s top lawyers.

Each year via a statewide balloting process, the magazine polls active members of the North Carolina Bar Association on 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 are not allowed to 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.

The Smith Debnam attorneys named to Business North Carolina’s 2017 “Legal Elite” are:

Lynn W. McNally for Family Law
Connie E. Carrigan for Employment Law
Caren D. Enloe for Business Law
Bettie K. Sousa for Business Law
