Wishart Norris, P.A. was founded in Burlington, NC, in 1976 with offices in both Burlington and Charlotte. From their beginnings in 1976 as a small firm with three lawyers, Wishart Norris quickly earned a reputation for its signature blend of empathy, expertise and responsiveness. It has become one of North Carolina's leading law firms.

Tracking trends and staying on top of new economic threats and opportunities, they offer input that fits strategically with the business owners goal keeping their long-range plan clearly in sight. It is the only road to a successful enterprise.
Over time, and with a steady focus on serving their clients, a simple set of four values were developed that are at the core of the way they do business.
*Forging Relationships that Last
