Practicing law runs in Samuel H. MacRaeís blood. Having held positions on the NC Supreme Court, Superior Court, and Recorderís Court; as well as serving as the first Dean of Law School at UNC Chapel Hill, and spending many years in private practice, the MacRae family has accumulated significant legal experience and recognition.
Following in the footsteps of four generations, Sam pursued a career in law, earning his Political Science degree from UNC Chapel Hill in 1987, and his Juris Doctorate from NC Central Universityís School of Law in 1991. He is now an active member of the New Hanover County Bar Association, NC Bar Association, and NC Association of Defense Attorneys.

No matter the complexity of the criminal or civil matter, Sam offers his clients both respected legal representation and better-than-expected customer service.

That means face time with Sam himself, phone calls returned promptly, and clients thoroughly informed of the options available at every single stage of the case.
