Brock Presents at Court of Appeals 50th Anniversary Celebration

Young Moore attorney, Walter E. Brock, Jr., recently presented at the afternoon Special Session held by The Court of Appeals in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. The event honored current and former judges. Brock talked about the appointment of the first Chief Judge Raymond B. Mallard and some of the characters on the first court including a canine associate. A dedication ceremony of a new portrait wall featuring all 78 Court of Appeals judges who have served during the past 50 years followed the second session.

Walter is the son of the late Judge Walter E. Brock, one of the six original members of the Court of Appeals. His close family ties allowed him to witness, as a young adult, the formation of the court. He later served a memorable clerkship in 1978 and 1979 for Chief Judge Naomi Morris, also an original member of the Court. Walter has appeared regularly before this Court as an appellate advocate since joining the firm of Young Moore and Henderson, P.A. in 1979.

A shareholder at Young Moore, Walter serves on the firm’s practice management committee and as a litigation team leader. He handles the litigation of cases in the Superior Courts throughout North Carolina, and in each of the three Federal District Courts in North Carolina. He routinely represents parties in appeals before the Court of Appeals of North Carolina, the North Carolina Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. In addition, Walter is also admitted to practice in the United States Supreme Court.
