Hamilton Stephens Steele + Martin, PLLC is pleased to announce that, Tracy James was recognized by her peers and Legal Elite as the top Construction Lawyer in North Carolina for 2019. Since 2002, Business North Carolina magazine has honored North Carolina lawyers by publishing Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, a listing of the state’s top lawyers in business-related categories. Winners are chosen not by BNC editors but by the state’s attorneys. Each year, every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina is sent a ballot — asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories? All active members vote for peers they think are at the top of their field (“2019 Legal Elite | Construction,” December 31, 2018).
