Six RCD Attorneys Named to 2023 Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite – Two Attorneys #1 in Respective Categories


Six attorneys from Rayburn Cooper & Durham, P.A. have been recognized by their peers as 2023 “Legal Elite” in Business North Carolina Magazine’s annual list.

Each year, Business North Carolina sends ballot notices to every member of the N.C. State Bar living in North Carolina — asking each a simple question: Of the Tar Heel lawyers whose work you have observed firsthand, whom would you rate among the current best in these categories? Voters are not allowed to vote for themselves. They may select members of their firms only if they pick out-of-firm lawyers in the same categories, with the latter votes weighted more heavily. Attorneys who receive the most votes in their respective categories become permanent members of the “Legal Elite Hall of Fame.”

The RCD attorneys named to Business North Carolina’s 2023 “Legal Elite” are

Scott Cooper – Corporate

Al Durham – Bankruptcy

Ross Fulton – Litigation

Jack Miller – Bankruptcy

Matt Tomsic – Bankruptcy


Ross Fulton and Matt Tomsic were both ranked first in their respective fields and have joined the “Legal Elite Hall of Fame.”

In addition, Rick Rayburn was previously named to the “Legal Elite Hall of Fame” for Bankruptcy.
