Bryson City, NC. January 14, 2020. The Board of Law Examiners of the State of North Carolina has admitted William F. McMurry to the NC Bar.   McMurry adds North Carolina to his Kentucky and Florida bar certifications.

Born and raised in Paducah, KY, McMurry has practiced law in Kentucky for 41 years. His Louisville, KY firm, William F McMurry & Associates, specializes in legal malpractice, medical malpractice and personal injury and automobile accidents. Adding a regional office in western North Carolina allows McMurry to offer his 41 years’ experience as an attorney to the residents of North Carolina.

While Louisville, KY is the home office for his firm, McMurry has called North Carolina his second home for the past twenty-one years. An avid white water kayaker and sky diver, McMurry has shared his NC home and his passion for the outdoors with his four children and many friends– kayaking the rivers of western North Carolina, exploring the mountains and enjoying the spectacular sunsets of western North Carolina from his mountain home outside of Bryson City, NC

“After 20 years of calling Western North Carolina “home” and seeing my friends and neighbors in need of quality of legal services, I am proud to announce that I have just been accepted by the North Carolina Board of Bar examiners to be licensed to practice law in North Carolina.  I am honored to become a member of the North Carolina bar and look forward to providing the highest level of skill and expertise to my friends and neighbors in Western North Carolina.” – Bill McMurry

Louisville, KY will continue to serve as the firm’s main office, but Bryson City in Swain County will be his home base in NC.   Not afraid to roll up his sleeves and fight for those he represents is reflected in his record of settlements and verdicts. This is particularly important for a region like western North Carolina, which, like many rural areas, lacks lawyers with specialized, high-needs skills.

Although about 20 percent of Americans live in rural areas, only 2 percent of lawyers practice there, according to research by Lisa Pruitt, the Martin Luther King Jr. Professor of Law at University of California, Davis School of Law. Swain County, with a population of 14,000 residents, is representative of this growing problem. McMurry will offer his legal expertise to those who have been injured through poor legal representation, medical mistreatment, automobile accidents or personal injury.

When asked about representing North Carolina, McMurry states, “As the only Board Certified Legal Malpractice Specialist (by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys) to be licensed in North Carolina, I will continue to fight for those who have been financially harmed by the negligence of their lawyer.  I will also continue to represent those suffering serious personal injury through the negligence of others.”
