Four Forrest Firm Attorneys Named Legal Elite

Forrest Firm is proud to announce that four of the firm’s attorneys have been included in Business North Carolina’s 2020 edition Legal Elite. Those honored this year include Rachel Blunk, Cory Howes, Andy Jones, and Jason Pfister

Legal Elite honors the best business law attorneys in North Carolina. Surveying every active member of the N.C. State Bar, it seeks to find out which of their colleagues they rate among the highest in several business-related categories. This honor is peer-driven recognition and no attorney can vote for themselves. 

Those who are the top-voted in their category become a member of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Hall of Fame, which included Forrest Firm founder James Forrest in 2016.
