Brooks Pierce attorney Will Quick has been awarded the Charles F. Blanchard Young Lawyer of the Year Award from the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) Young Lawyers Division. The Charles F. Blanchard Award recognizes young lawyers for their notable and commendable service and is named in honor of Charles Blanchard, the founding chair of the Young Lawyers Division.
Quick, an associate in the firm’s Raleigh office, represents businesses and local governments in trial and appellate matters and before state agencies in North Carolina and South Carolina.
