EDWARD J. ‘NED’ MCNAUGHTON is a founding member of the construction litigation firm of McNaughton & Shelton, PLLC, and devotes almost his entire practice to serving construction clients from all levels of the industry.

Mr. McNaughton is a cum laude graduate from the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) School of Law, where he was listed in Who’s Who: American Law Students. He received his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude from Christian Brothers University, School of Business, in Memphis, Tennessee, where he earned top honors and was awarded Delta Sigma Pi Scholarship Key. While at Christian Brothers, Mr. McNaughton managed to simultaneously earn an associate’s degree in Productivity and Quality Control (TQM) from the State Technical Institute at Memphis, once again graduating at the top of his class.

Licensed since 1999
I have come to know Mr. McNaughton through our work together with the Mecklenburg County Bar Association. He has also been a helpful resource on construction law matters, being both knowledgeable about the subject matter and able to effectively communicate that knowledge. He has been insightful, professional, and genuinely helpful in each of my dealings with him and, therefore, feel confident in endorsing him.
