Attorney Referrals

Our attorneys are privileged to maintain ongoing referral relationships with other attorneys as near as Raleigh and as far as California. Due to our proximity to Duke and UNC, we are often called upon by a parent’s out-of-state attorney to intervene and ensure a young person mistakes don’t prevent a prosperous future. Whatever the reason, we look forward to discussing how we might work together.

You can rest assured if you choose to refer matters to Thomas, Ferguson & Mullins. Our partners have been named one of “The Best Lawyers in America” since 2006. The firm has also been selected for inclusion in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers by Martindale-Hubbell.


We are litigators. While many cases settle, we can and will take a case to trial if that’s what it takes to get the best possible result. We have handled criminal matters ranging from traffic violations to capital murder and personal injury matters including wrongful death. We’re also experienced in business litigation.

Student Disciplinary Proceedings

Thomas, Ferguson & Mullins is a strong advocate for students finding themselves in need of counsel in student disciplinary proceedings. Most cases will be resolved in an administrative hearings, but cases that are serious in nature may be forwarded to the university’s conduct board for resolution. Typically there’s only 5 days notice of a hearing given, so time is of the essence.
