Attorneys comprising the 2015 induction class are:

The Hall of Fame, sponsored by the NCBA Solo, Small Firm & General Practice Section, was established in 1989. This year’s induction class brings membership in the Hall of Fame to 149 attorneys.

General Practice Hall of Fame lawyers are general practitioners who are outstanding members of the legal profession whose careers have served as models for lawyers in the general practice of law.

To be eligible for nomination, lawyers much have practiced law for at least 25 years, a significant portion of that time having been devoted to the general practice of law, and must be members in good standing with the North Carolina State Bar and the North Carolina Bar Association, and are living at the time of their selections.

General Practice Hall of Fame lawyers have exhibited throughout their practice the highest standards of ethics and professional competency and have rendered a high level of service to the bar and to their communities.

Nominations are submitted to the Hall of Fame Committee which determines each year's honorees.
