This is the second consecutive year that Chapman has been included in the magazine’s annual listing of the top lawyers in the state.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) January 17, 2017
Chelsea Chapman of the McIlveen Family Law Firm was voted as one of Business North Carolina’s 2017 Legal Elite. Less than 3% of North Carolina’s lawyers - 644 in all - made the list of North Carolina’s top lawyers in business-related categories. This is the second consecutive year that Chapman has been included in the magazine’s annual listing of the top lawyers in the state.
Since 2002, Tar Heel lawyers have been honored through Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite - a list of the top state lawyers in 14 business-related categories. Winners are not chosen by BNC editors, but by the lawyers themselves. Every active lawyer throughout North Carolina is given the opportunity to participate and vote.
The selection process for the latest winners began in June 2016. Ballots were sent to over 23,000 active members of the North Carolina Bar, asking one simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories?
Lawyers were then requested to select peers in 14 different categories. Though they were not allowed to vote for themselves, lawyers were permitted to cast a vote for a lawyer from their own firm provided that they also chose an attorney in the same category but from an outside firm. More weight was given to outside votes.
