Rayburn Cooper & Durham is pleased to announce that the North Carolina State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization presented Al Durham with the Sara H. Davis Excellence Award on April 29, 2016. The Board accepts nominations and presents this award to a certified specialist who has a “long and consistent record of handling challenging matters successfully, for sharing knowledge and experience with other lawyers, for earning the respect and admiration of all others with whom the lawyer comes into contact in his/her daily work, and for high ethical standards.”
Al Durham has been a Certified Specialist in Business and Consumer Bankruptcy Law since 1987, the first year that the Bar certified specialists in these fields. One of his nominators described Al as “an example to the entire Bankruptcy Bar for his meticulous analytical capabilities and encyclopedic knowledge of the Bankruptcy Code.” Another nominator shared that Al is a “caring mentor to attorneys both within and outside his firm.”
Al Durham represents debtors in business workouts and financial reorganizations and trustees, debtors, creditors, and creditors’ committees in business bankruptcies under Chapter 7 or 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.
