May 11, 2018

Two attorneys at Turning Point Litigation are honored to accept recent appointments to positions with a statewide impact.

Alan W. Duncan was appointed by Governor Roy Cooper to an unexpired term on the North Carolina State Board of Education. Alan will represent the Piedmont Triad Region (District 5), which includes the Alamance, Asheboro, Caswell, Davidson, Davie, Elkin, Forsyth, Guilford, Lexington, Mount Airy, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Thomasville, Surry, and Yadkin county and/or city school systems. The State Board of Education is responsible for supervising and administering the free public school system in this state and the educational funds provided for its support. Alan has served on the Guilford County Board of Education since 2000, including as Chair for the last 16 years, and looks forward to applying his extensive experience in public education to better the educational opportunities for children across the region and the state. He thanks Governor Cooper for the appointment and the opportunity to serve in this important new role.

Allison Mullins was appointed by the State Bar Council, at its April meeting, to an unexpired term on the North Carolina Judicial Standards Commission. The Commission is made up of judges, attorneys, and private citizens. It is authorized to receive written complaints about concerns with misconduct or disability of a judge, to investigate those complaints, and to make recommendations to the Supreme Court of North Carolina regarding appropriate discipline. The firm and its attorneys understand the importance to our clients, and to the public, of a high quality judiciary that fairly renders decisions under the law and consistent with the Canons of the Code of Judicial Conduct. Allison’s work on the Judicial Standards Commission is an important opportunity to put these values into practice on behalf of the Bar and the citizens of this state.
