For 2012, Caldwell Barefoot received the most votes of any family lawyer in the State in the balloting for Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, which will result in his becoming a member of the Legal Elite Hall of Fame, an honor shared with less than ten other family lawyers in North Carolina. Lawyers across the state made their selections again this year for Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, published in the magazine’s January edition. Statewide, 650 lawyers — about 3% of the total — were picked by their peers in 14 mostly business-related categories. Notices were sent to more than 20,000 active members of the North Carolina State Bar living in the state, directing them to the ballot on the magazine’s Web site, www.BusinessNC.com. Voters could not pick themselves, and they could select partners and associates only if they also select lawyers outside the firm in the same categories, with more weight given to outside votes.
