Our History


On June 1, 1950, Stacy Eggers, Jr. was sworn-in to practice law and opened a law office in his hometown of Boone, North Carolina.  At the time he started practicing law, he was one of only four lawyers practicing in Boone. An accomplished trial attorney and insightful lawyer, Stacy Eggers, Jr. soon made a name for himself as a fixture of the Watauga County legal community.  In 1974, Stacy Eggers, III joined his father in the practice of law until his untimely passing in 1990. His sister, Rebecca Eggers-Gryder, joined the family business in 1986 and practiced with the firm until she was appointed (and subsequently re-elected) as a District Court Judge in 2015.

Stacy ‘Four’ Eggers, IV and his wife Kimberly McGuire Eggers have practiced law since 2001 and are proud to continue the family legal of providing legal services to the High Country.  They are joined by Jonathan Green, Chris Barnes, and Josh Coffey in building upon the foundation of quality, client-focused legal work.

Through a culture of dedication to the law, hard work, and focus on our clients, we work to make a difference in the lives of our clients.  We are especially grateful for the kind words of recognition made by our Congresswoman, Virginia Foxx, from the floor of the United States House of Representatives:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUaQnpaNgGo
