Ragsdale Liggett is pleased to announce that Amie Sivon has been recognized as a Board Certified Specialist in Appellate Practice by the North Carolina State Bar. Certification is a stringent process through which the designation of lawyers is determined by demonstration of knowledge, skill, experience, proficiency and peer references in a practice area. Fewer than 4% of the state’s approximate 28,200 lawyers have achieved this specialist status. The work involved in the vigorous certification process demonstrates the commitment Amie has to her law practice.
A partner of the firm, Amie is a seasoned civil litigator with extensive trial and appellate experience. Many of the appeals Amie has been involved in have resulted in positive outcomes in both published and unpublished opinions. In her sixth year of executive council leadership, she serves as Vice Chair of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section Council. Amie is a leader in the firm’s Appellate Practice group, an area which has been recognized in the top tier lists in Best Law Firms in America editions, and she has been named by Best Lawyers in America®, North Carolina Super Lawyers, and Legal Elite by Business North Carolina magazine in its Appellate Law lists. Amie is an honors graduate of UNC at Chapel Hill School of Law and Wake Forest University.
