Northup McConnell and Sizemore, LLC is a small law firm with a focus on complex litigation, in both State and Federal courts throughout North Carolina, including the well-known "Rocket Docket" of the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. Our mission has always been to serve the growing demand for a small firm with attorneys experienced in sophisticated matters. In an environment where the cost of complex litigation continues to escalate, our goal is to provide the highest quality legal representation with the cost advantages and personal attention available in a small firm setting.

We are committed to excellence. Our attorneys have superior academic backgrounds. They know how to try cases, they know how to write persuasive briefs, and they have been called upon to teach those skills to others. Ike Northup has been elected as Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Our team includes lawyers who began their careers as trial and appellate judicial law clerks, knowledgeable about the procedural intricacies of litigated matters as viewed from behind the bench. Over the years, our practice has been characterized by challenging cases involving a wide range of subjects. We have succeeded in these cases through a combination of hard work, analytical skill, creative thinking, and sound judgment.

We value efficiency. In modern litigation, there is "wheat," but there is also plenty of "chaff." We understand the difference. In cases that we handle, we believe it is important to pick our battles wisely –fighting those that serve the client and avoiding those that obscure the important issues and needlessly drive up costs. Sophisticated clients understand that staffing cases with experienced and skilled lawyers usually results in lower overall costs. Of course, litigation is a collaborative process, so the choices that are made in each case are the client's as well as the attorney's.
