Congratulations to Founding Partner Kristen Beightol for her selection by Business North Carolina as the overall winner of the ‘Litigation’ category in the magazine’s 2021 Legal Elite list. The feature article regarding her inclusion as the overall winner can be found at the following link: https://businessnc.com/legal-elite-2021-litigation/.
This is a prestigious honor that speaks to Kristen’s proven success as a trial lawyer, and to the respect and esteem she has cultivated among her peers.
Since 2002, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite has been a special feature that profiles the state’s most respected attorneys as voted by their peers. BNC curates its listing through ballots sent to every member of the NC State Bar living in North Carolina, and asks lawyers, judges, and other members 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?”
Top vote-getters are ultimately named to the final list. Only one winner is chosen for each of the 16 Legal Elite categories.
Our team congratulates Kristen on her latest achievement, and looks forward to BNC’s January issue where she will be profiled among the 2021 Legal Elite winners.
As an advocate who has devoted decades to fighting for the injured and wronged, Kristen has been an invaluable part of our firm’s success. In addition to being named to prestigious attorney listings such as North Carolina Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America, Kristen has secured millions in compensation for clients, including multiple recoveries listed in North Carolina Lawyer’s Top Verdicts & Settlements. She focuses her practice on complex civil litigation involving serious personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death.
