Small firm attention. Big firm results.


Our Team

Established in 1995, the Raleigh-based Stuart Law Firm, PLLC, brings together over 60 years of combined legal experience of firm principals James and Catherine Stuart and Theresa Dew.

Jim Stuart’s housing finance practice is built upon his 13 years of service as general counsel to the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency and over $2 billion in housing transaction closings.  In addition, his insurance practice developed over his 20-year tenure as general counsel to Builders Mutual Insurance Company and its predecessors.

Cathy Stuart’s practice originates from her previous litigation experience in both state and federal courts, her representation of government agencies and non-profit organizations, and her service as general counsel to the U.S. Olympic Festival.

All attorneys are licensed in the State of North Carolina, while one is also licensed in Tennessee and the District of Columbia, and another in South Carolina and Georgia.  The Firm regularly employs five to eight paralegals, as well as undergraduate interns and law clerks when appropriate.
