Howard, Stallings, From & Hutson, P.A. commenced its practice in Raleigh in 1983 with Cader Howard (a respected business lawyer and litigator), Allan From (a tax law and estate planning expert) and John Hutson, (an experienced litigator and published legal scholar) initially forming the Firm's vision. Joe Stallings, (a former Wall Street attorney with a practice in complex commercial and litigation matters) together with Beth Atkins (a talented transactional and business attorney) were at the same time developing a similar practice in New Bern. In 1987 the two practices merged with Joe joining the Raleigh office and Beth directing the practice in New Bern.
As the Firm's client base expanded, we also expanded the number of its principals to meet the varied and growing needs of those clients. Jim Angell (a CPA, board certified business bankruptcy specialist and panel bankruptcy trustee), Joan Davis (who handles complex business litigation, real estate, land use and condemnation disputes, as well as serious injury and death claims), Brian Moore (who is a commercial and estate litigator and an administrative lawyer) and Russell Johnson (an experienced Litigator) have all enhanced the Firm's reputation for excellence.
