Lexington Attorney Elected as Vice President of District Bar

E. Drew Nelson, an Associate at Brinkley Walser Stoner, assumes VP role for 22B District Bar Lexington, NC – E. Drew Nelson, an Associate at Brinkley Walser Stoner, was elected to serve a one-year term as Vice President of District Bar 22B, covering Davidson and Davie Counties, and one of 45 Judicial District Bars in North Carolina. “I am excited to become more involved in a leadership role with our local District Bar,” says Nelson. “While most people assume there is a single bar association for each state, attorneys must be members of their local District Bar to remain active and retain their license. The District Bars assume a different role than the state bar associations. I am pleased to become more involved in supporting the judicial process behind the scenes.” North Carolina statutes assign a variety of responsibilities to the District Bars, including nominating judicial candidates for any District Court vacancies that come open. Prior to assuming the role of Vice President, Nelson served on the George Fuller Scholarship Committee for the combined 22A and 22 B Bar Associations. Nelson focuses his practice on Corporate Law, Probate and Estate Administration, Estate Planning Law, Real Estate Law, and Criminal Law in Davidson, Guilford and surrounding counties.

Brinkley Walser Stoner’s attorneys are first and foremost counselors, advising clients on their legal rights and options for appropriate solutions.
