Essex Richards is pleased to announce that Business North Carolina magazine has named Partner Heather Culp as the top bankruptcy attorney in North Carolina on its 2017 list of “Legal Elite.”
Heather received this award by gaining the highest number of votes by her peers in North Carolina’s legal community.
Each year, the publication asks lawyers practicing in the state of North Carolina to vote on those they consider “Legal Elite” in specified business-related legal categories. The process begins by sending ballots to all members of the N.C. Bar, asking them to select lawyers they feel are at the top of their fields. Heather received the most votes in the area of Bankruptcy.
As a result of receiving this award, Heather will also become a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame, joining previous Essex Richards hall-of-famers, Rob Blair (Family Law, 2016), Renee Hughes (Employment, 2012), and Lou Lesesne (Employment, 2007).
