NCAJ Legal Affairs Counsel Sam McGee has relocated to Wilder Pantazis Law Group where he will be of counsel to the firm. He will conduct most of his litigation practice through the office. McGee will remain afflilliated in an of counsel role at Tin Fulton Walker & Owen, where he has practiced for 10 years.

McGee is a graduate of Yale Law School, Wake Forest University and Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College. Early in his career, he worked for both the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and the Supreme Court of North Carolina. During his 24 years of law practice, McGee has recovered over $100 million for his clients, including multiple seven- figure verdicts, and recoveries of at least seven figures in North Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana, Georgia and New Jersey. He has also handled numerous appeals, most notably being involved in three cases in two different states defeating binding arbitration for nursing home cases. 

In his role as legal affairs counsel for NCAJ, McGee monitors North Carolina Court of Appeals decisions, receives requests for amicus support and leads NCAJ members in the process of evaluation and execution of those requests. He also organizes and coordinates moot courts, provide analysis of judicial candidates seeking NCAJ endorsements and monitors developments in ethics rules and guidance at the N.C. State Bar.
