Best Lawyers In America
Best Lawyers is lauded as the “go to list” for legal experts. Best Lawyers in America‘s 2009 referral guide includes 39,766 attorneys in 80 specialties, covering all 50 states. This number represents a mere .03% of lawyers in the US. This information is worth repeating: of the more than 19,000 lawyers in North Carolina, only 19 family lawyers appear on the list from the entire state. Patrick and partner, Howard Gum, are two of those 19 attorneys.
