Ragsdale Liggett PLLC has announced that Robert J. Ramseur, Jr., a partner in the firm, has been recognized as one of the top lawyers in North Carolina by Business North Carolina, a magazine that covers business trends and issues in the state.
Each year, Business North Carolina mails ballots to every lawyer living in North Carolina licensed by the State Bar. The ballots ask: “Of the North Carolina lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best?” Voters in 2007 selected Ramseur, and he was subsequently inducted into the Legal Elite in the area of real estate. Less than 3 percent of the state’s lawyers made the list. This year marks the second consecutive Legal Elite recognition for Ramseur.
“I am honored to again be named to Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite,” said Ramseur. “To be recognized by my peers in this way is humbling and gratifying.”
