Wilmington, NC – We would like to extend our congratulations to attorney Frank Jones for his recent victory in the November election. Jones won the contested Superior Court judge seat in New Hanover County.
A native of Wilmington, Judge Jones is a respected colleague in the criminal defense field. He earned his J.D. from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. He went on to practice in state and federal courts for more than 30 years at the Wilmington law firm of Burney & Jones, where he focused on DUIs, expungements, DMV proceedings and other criminal matters.
Judge Jones has served as a leader in the community and an important force for change in the criminal defense landscape. Among his campaign priorities, Judge Jones is committed to alleviating the opioid crisis through community education and expanded treatment options. He has served on the board of the New Hanover County Drug Treatment Court and as former president of the New Hanover County Bar Association.
We are confident that Judge Jones’ wealth of experience in the trenches of the courtroom will serve him well in his judgeship, and we look forward to working with him in this new capacity.
