The National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys (NAOPIA) selected Chris Shumate as a 2018 Top 10 Attorney for North Carolina. The NAOPIA utilizes a multi-phase selection process to identify and nominate individuals. Candidates are initially nominated by licensed attorneys or in-house research staff members. The research staff then confirms a nominee meets specific criteria. Fifty candidates are identified to advance to a final review by the Selection Committee, where a Board of Governors then selects the top 10 attorneys for the state of North Carolina.
I work extremely hard representing my personal injury clients. I work with these clients very closely to achieve the best possible result for each individual. I make sure my clients are treated as I would expect to be treated as we proceed through the legal process. It's a nice honor to receive this recognition.
