Drew Nelson is an attorney in the Triad of North Carolina. His practice areas include Estate Planning, Corporate – Formation and Transactional, Probate and Estate Administration, Elder Law, Guardianships, Real Estate, Landlord/Tenant Law, Business Law, and Collections.
For as long as I can remember, becoming a lawyer has been a dream of mine. In high school, I participated in the Davidson County Teen Court program, and from there a flame was lit. I have always wanted to help others; being an attorney enables me to do just that, as well as counsel them through difficult situations. At the end of the day, nothing is more rewarding than the grateful thanks of your clients.
Even prior to beginning the study of law, if you had asked me what my dream job was, I would have said “working for Brinkley Walser.” The history behind this firm and its reputation within the community spoke to me both professionally and personally. History and tradition are very important to me, perhaps explaining why I attended Elon University following my father’s footsteps and decided it was the next logical step to continue to Elon University School of Law.
With over 125 years of experience serving the community, Brinkley Walser Stoner embodies a commitment to excellence and service. The firm’s reach extends beyond the practice of law; it serves as a pillar in the community, and I’m privileged to put my mark on an organization that has such a rich and engaged past. As an attorney at Brinkley Walser Stoner I take pride in being relatable and down to earth with my clients while upholding the reputation of a firm they know and trust. I feel that the best way to communicate with anyone is to simply be honest and upfront.
The clients I serve are not just people, they are neighbors. This community – my community – has helped shape me into the person I am today and will continue to teach and support me in this role. Being a Lexington native has given me years of insight and allowed me to appreciate how truly great this community is. I am excited to serve the community that has given me so much.
When I’m not working, I love to be outdoors as much as possible – from rock climbing to skiing and anything in between you will most likely find me outside when not at the office. A goal of mine is to hike the entire Appalachian Trail, having done most of it from Georgia to Virginia so far. I also love to golf and spend time with my family.
