Mike Jordan

“The most rewarding aspect of practicing law is seeing the positive difference you can make in the lives of people who are suffering; I feel very strongly that the practice of law is an opportunity to help others. This drive to help others was instilled at an early age by my parents and further nurtured by my faith.”

“The most rewarding aspect of practicing law is seeing the positive difference you can make in the lives of people who are suffering; I feel very strongly that the practice of law is an opportunity to help others,” Mike says. “This drive to help others was instilled at an early age by my parents and further nurtured by my faith.”

Mike is on the Board of Directors for the Durham Bar Association and the 16th Judicial District Bar Association. He is a member of the American Association for Justice and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), where he serves on their Legal Affairs Committee after previously serving on the Board of Governors. Mike has served on so many NCAJ committees that he’s received their “Order of Service” award most years since the award’s inception.

Mike has been a regular speaker at various continuing legal education (CLE) seminars, and served as a host and emcee for various legal programs.

In addition to his work with NCAJ, Mike has held various roles on committees and subsections for the North Carolina Bar Association, as well as serving several years on the Advisory Board for the North Carolina Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

Mike also authored parts of the North Carolina Personal Injury Liens Manual, published by LexisNexis. On top of all of that, Mike is active with his church, serving as a small group leader and filling in where needed.

In his down time, Mike is an avid motorcyclist, and he takes special pride in helping other bikers with their injury cases.
