Norman Charles “Chas” Post III of the Sanford-based Post, Foushee & Patton law firm has been named one of “The Best Lawyers in America” in criminal defense for the year 2022 by Best Lawyers and will be included in the 28th edition of the publication set to be released later this year.

Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review, and attorneys do not pay money to have their names listed. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.

Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Only about 6 percent of lawyers across the country are selected.

Post has been a board certified specialist in state criminal law by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization since 2019 and is the only lawyer in Lee County to have earned such distinction. He specializes in all areas of state criminal law, and, on a daily basis, represents individuals targeted by the government for prosecution throughout the courtrooms of central North Carolina.
