About me

I have been working at DeVore, Acton & Stafford, PA since January 2010. I consider myself a civil trial attorney who enjoys being in the courtroom. My practice is centered around having a sense of urgency with every case, and always keeping my clients informed about the status of his or her case.

Our law firm does both plaintiff and defense work, and I am privileged to be practicing with my father, Fred W. DeVore, III. I am also thankful for my supportive family. My wife, Jessica DeVore, and my two children, Hartman and Grayson, play a major role in all of my accomplishments.


Our practice area is civil litigation which includes construction disputes, personal injury, wrongful death, and many other areas of law. I also handle traffic tickets and misdemeanors in Mecklenburg, Union, Gaston, and Cabarrus counties.
