About McElwee Law Firm

At McElwee Law Firm, we look forward to demonstrating our commitment, expertise, and caring to you should you ever need legal advice.

The McElwee Law Firm was started in 1935 by William H. McElwee, Jr. in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina.  Throughout its 82 year history, the McElwee Law Firm has been one of the most significant and successful law practices in western North Carolina.  William H. McElwee, Jr. helped to incorporate what is now Lowe’s Hardware in 1952, and the firm served as Lowe’s general counsel for over 40 years.  The firm also helped to incorporate and served as general counsel for Holly Farms beginning in 1968.  Today the original law office is still located in North Wilkesboro, in the same location where it has been for over 50 years, and a second office is located in Winston-Salem.  The firm offers a full range of legal services to its clients, including representation in personal injury matters.

The McElwee Firm offers a common sense approach to law. Our lawyers are committed to listening to our clients, discussing their business or personal needs and then counseling and advising in a straightforward manner. We are willing to travel to meet with clients and we strive to keep clients informed of the progress of their matters as the work progresses.

Our lawyers understand the stress and anxiety many clients experience when confronting a legal matter like bankruptcy, personal injury, business litigation or even a minor traffic violation. We do everything we can to make your experience with the legal process as free from frustration as possible. We care about the client as well as the case.
