Attorney Stan Abrams

Helping property owners facing land condemnation in North Carolina

Stan Abrams joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2012 to lead the firm’s eminent domain practice.

He received his J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law in Chapel Hill, and an undergraduate degree in Pre-Law from Bob Jones University in South Carolina.

Prior to joining the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, Stan worked as an assistant attorney general for the North Carolina Department of Justice, where he represented the North Carolina Department of Transportation in condemnation litigation throughout the state. In doing so, he gained valuable perspective about the state’s approach to eminent domain takings.

"My previous experience as a lawyer for the North Carolina Department of Transportation taught me how important I feel it is for a property owner facing condemnation to have an experienced lawyer fighting for them. I enjoy using the knowledge and experience I have gained handling eminent domain cases throughout North Carolina to try to help people receive the just compensation that the law requires."

Stan has argued cases before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the North Carolina Supreme Court, and he has tried dozens of jury trials throughout North Carolina.

He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum*, North Carolina Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the North Carolina State Bar, the Wilson County Bar and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. Mr. Abrams has also served as a trial advocacy instructor for the North Carolina Department of Justice.
