S. Troy Staley brings a healthy work ethic and a keen eye for research to Hutchens Law Firm as an associate practicing in the area of Creditors' Bankruptcy.
While pursuing his undergraduate degree, Troy excelled academically, earning several scholarships, graduating magna cum laude and first in class for his major, making the Dean's List and the President's List, and being recognized by several honor societies. One of the highlights in college was earning the Distinguished Student by U.S. Senator/North Carolina Attorney General Robert B.
