Younce, Vtipil & Baznik Attorney Hilscher Recognized in Family Law Practice Area
RALEIGH, NC, January 31, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Younce, Vtipil, & Baznik is pleased to announce that Business North Carolina magazine has named attorney Kristopher J. Hilscher to its 2018 Legal Elite.
Legal Elite is an exceptional distinction, with fewer than 3 percent of the state’s lawyers named to the list this year. Kris Hilscher was selected in the practice area of family law.
Legal Elite attorneys are selected through ballots sent to more than 20,000 attorneys who are active members of the North Carolina State Bar. Members of the Bar are asked to select the best lawyers in each field.
Kris provides counsel to those facing divorce, custody, alimony, equitable distribution, high net worth and business divisions, domestic violence, child support, and all related family law matters. Kris is a strong believer in a client-driven model where the guiding principle is to achieve the client’s reasonable legal objectives by following the golden rule – treating everyone as he would want to be treated.
In addition to the Legal Elite selection, Kris also has received a coveted AV rating from the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory–a significant accomplishment indicating that his peers rank him at the highest level of professional excellence.
He attended Hampden-Sydney College on an academic scholarship and graduated with a B.A. in political science. He earned a Juris Doctor degree from Campbell University Law School and was editor-in-chief of the Campbell Law Observer.
In addition to his legal advocacy for clients, Kris and the family law attorneys at Younce, Vtipil & Baznik have been active in a petition drive urging lawmakers to replace an outdated North Carolina sexual consent law. The law firm has been seeking to build grassroots support to rewrite the archaic North Carolina law that currently does not allow a person to revoke consent to have intercourse after the sex has begun. Kris appeared on CNN, WRAL, and other news outlets with a client who had been a victim of domestic assault to increase awareness of the need to change North Carolina’s outdated consent law.
Since 2002, Business North Carolina magazine has published a listing of the state’s top lawyers in various practice area categories.
Lawyers may not select themselves and can only vote for members of their own firms if they also choose someone outside their firms in the same category, with more weight given to outside votes. Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite has become the model for other awards and lists.
