Our History


The Eggers family has been a fixture of the Watauga County area since the 1700’s. When Stacy Eggers, Jr. began practicing law in Boone on June 1, 1950, he was one of four lawyers practicing in the County. He has set forth a distinguished legacy of superior legal skill, dedication to clients, and outstanding ethical representation which continues with the firm today. In 1974, his son, Stacy Eggers, III joined the law practice and practiced with him until his untimely passing in 1990. His daughter, Rebecca Eggers-Gryder, practiced law with the firm from 1984 until being appointed to the District Court bench in 2015 by Governor Pat McCrory. In 2001, his grandson Stacy Eggers, IV joined the firm after graduating law school with his wife, Kimberly Eggers. His other grandson, Austin Eggers, also practices law with the family firm. We are pleased to have Chris Barnes and Jonathan Green as part of our practice, and together have a wide base of expertise to provide top quality legal services to our community.
