Our History

On June 1, 1950, Stacy Eggers, Jr. was sworn-in to practice law and opened a law office in his hometown of Boone, North Carolina. At the time he started practicing law, he was one of only four lawyers practicing in Boone. An accomplished trial attorney, Stacy Eggers, Jr. soon made a name for himself as a fixture of the Watauga County legal community. In 1974, Stacy Eggers, III joined his father in the practice of law until his untimely passing in 1990. His sister, Rebecca Eggers-Gryder, joined the family business in 1986 and practiced with the firm until she was appointed (and subsequently re-elected) as a District Court Judge in 2015.

Stacy ‘Four’ Eggers, IV and his wife Kimberly McGuire Eggers have practiced law since 2001 and are proud to continue the family legacy of providing legal services to the High Country. Four’s brother, Austin Eggers, also is an attorney and now teaches business law at the Appalachian State University Walker College of Business. They are joined by Jonathan Green, Chris Barnes, and Kevin Friley in building upon the foundation of quality, client-focused legal work.

Through a culture of dedication to the law, hard work, and focus on our clients, we work to make a difference in the lives of our clients. We are especially grateful for the kind words of recognition for Stacy Eggers, Jr. made by our Congresswoman, Virginia Foxx, from the floor of the United States House of Representatives. Click here to view Congresswoman Foxx’s speech.

We are truly honored and humbled by the success which this community has made possible. Our effort to always place the interests of our clients as our top priority has led multiple generations to entrust us with their legal matters, and for that we are very grateful. Whether your family has used our services before or you are new to the area and looking for an attorney to assist you with legal representation, we are always happy to be able to make a difference in the lives of our clients.

We are pleased to be peer-rated through the Martindale-Hubbell peer rating system, and that our firm holds a Preeminent rating with that organization. Click here to view our Martindale-Hubbell reviews.

We strive to handle our client’s matters with professionalism and diligence. Located on West King Street in Boone across from the Courthouse, our attorneys have a broad base of experience to provide advice and representation in a wide variety of legal issues. Each of our attorneys have litigation backgrounds, which provides them with the experience to analyze problems and understand how the Courts evaluate them. This is helpful in negotiating transactions, as it enables us to focus on the important issues for our clients.

Why Martindale-Hubbell?

On our website, you may notice that we have links and references to a Martindale-Hubbell rating system for our attorneys. Martindale-Hubbell was founded in 1887 as a referral service for attorneys, wherein attorneys and judges would anonymously rate their peers both for ethics and legal abilities. Before the age of the internet, we would purchase a multi-volume set of these books to enable us to make competent referrals to other attorneys through North Carolina and the United States. For example, if we needed to find a litigation attorney in Denver, Colorado it would give us the information we needed to get our client to a capable lawyer in that area.

In a time where there is a lot of lawyer advertising being sent out, we believe these evaluations are helpful in narrowing which law firm may be a good fit for your legal needs.
