These Awards were presented at the NCADA 45th Annual Meeting on Friday, June 17, 2022 in Wilmington, North Carolina.
The J. Robert Award for Professional Excellence recognizes a member's contributions to the organized Bar as a whole and to their community, and who exemplify the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and ethics.
The Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy recognizes members who are eminently qualified to advocate for clients in state and federal courtrooms. They are considered by the NCADA as among the finest trial lawyers in the state. Not only have they consistently obtained favorable results for their clients, they have done so while exhibiting a command of the skills necessary to obtain such results.
Please join us in congratulating Sara Lincoln and Nick Ellis as we recognize both as leaders in the NCADA and the civil trial bar.
