The summer months have arrived which means longer days, the return of the downtown farmers market and the excitement of having a summer associate join our team. This summer, Matthew Hinson, a rising third year law student at UNC School of Law is joining our team. Matt is a native of Kinston, North Carolina, wields an impressive beard and never misses an episode of Jeopardy.

During his time with us this summer, Matt will be assisting in all areas of our practice and will have the opportunity to engage with our amazing clients, participate in focus groups and depositions and experience motion hearings and mediations. We are thankful to have him on board with us this summer and excited to introduce him to you.
