Close Smith Family Law is proud to announce that on January 1st, Business North Carolina’s 2021 Legal Elite rankings named Managing Partner Cary Close as the top family lawyer in the State and Partner Kelly K. Smith as a “Young Gun” – a small group of lawyers under the age of 40 who are rising stars amongst their peers.
As explained by the publication, “This marks the 20th Legal Elite class. Each year, BNC has invited active members of the N.C. State Bar to vote for their most-esteemed peers. Attorneys can’t vote for themselves . . . . This year, 982 lawyers were selected as Legal Elite, which represents fewer than 4% of the state’s 28,000 active attorneys.”
“It’s an honor beyond description, really, for both myself and Kelly to have received such recognition from our peers. We love what we do, and we couldn’t be happier to know that our fellow attorneys think we do it well,” said Cary.
