Stan Abrams - A Personal Perspective
Strong family values guide Stan Abrams. He has built roots in the state where his grandparents were tobacco farmers and has followed in his father’s footsteps in the practice of law. Now a father himself, he works to instill those family values in his three children.
Stan grew up in Wilson, North Carolina and continues to reside in Wilson today. In high school, Stan worked in his father’s law practice, filling in wherever he could by answering the phones or filing papers.
Those early days working in his father’s law office inspired a love of the law that ultimately led Stan to study at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
"I saw how my father was able to use his career as a lawyer to help people, and I wanted to be able to do the same," Stan said.
Stan found his niche as an eminent domain lawyer, where he felt that his knowledge and training could really make a difference for his clients.
"People often don't know how much they have to lose by not having a lawyer," he said, noting that his clients are often at risk of losing their house or their business.
Sharing family values in North Carolina
College set the stage in many ways for the rest of Stan's life, as it is also where he met his wife of more than 20 years. They now have three children - a son and two daughters.
Stan likes to spend his free time with his family, attending sporting events and other activities that his children are involved in.
Stan and his family attend Peace Church in Wilson, where Stan has taught adult Sunday School.
