About Roger

Learn Roger’s areas of practice.

Mr. Young graduated from Washington and Lee University in 1971. After a year of teaching German and coaching soccer and cross-country at Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, VA, he joined the United States Air Force in 1972.

During his 14 years of active duty, Mr. Young earned his aeronautical rating as a navigator. He chose to train as a Weapons Systems Officer (WSO) in the F-4 Phantom II fighter jet. His choice of aircraft resulted in an assignment to Udorn RTAFB, Thailand in 1974 -1975. After Thailand, Mr. Young returned to the USAF Navigation School as an Instructor Navigator at Mather AFB in Sacramento, CA.

In 1977, Mr. Young was chosen as one of twenty five Air Force officers to attend law school as part of the Funded Legal Education Program, which was implemented to meet mid-level judge advocate staffing requirements for the Air Force. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in 1980. Following graduation, Mr. Young continued to serve on active duty as a Judge Advocate (JAG) until 1986, when he resigned his commission and joined the Air Force Reserve as a Judge Advocate. During Operation Desert Shield, he was the first USAF Reserve Judge Advocate recalled to active duty to assume the role of Staff Judge Advocate (ranking lawyer on base) at a major Air Force Base.

Mr. Young began private practice in 1987 with a firm that ultimately became Walker, Young & Barwick in Goldsboro, NC. Between 1987 and 1994, his practice consisted of insurance defense litigation in the areas of automobile negligence and medical malpractice. In 1993, Mr. Young also became certified as a Superior Court Mediator in the State of North Carolina. He has mediated approximately 200 cases since that time.

In 1994, Mr. Young joined the firm of Narron & Holdford in Wilson, NC. While in Wilson, the focus of his practice changed from representing defendant car drivers and physicians who had been sued for malpractice to representing those who were injured as a result of medical negligence throughout Eastern North Carolina.

Mr. Young relocated to Wilmington, NC in 2005 and established The Young Law Firm, PC, where he continues to represent plaintiffs in civil litigation on matters of personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, hospital negligence, traumatic brain injury and trucking accidents. He is a certified mediator and has also served as an arbitrator at the request of parties involved in litigation.

Mr. Young is an avid photographer of people, nature, and wildlife. Other interests include sailing, reading, and woodworking.

Helping secure my grandson's future
Professional, respectful and supportive, Mr. Young successfully represented our family in a very complicated wrongful death suit. Prior to his birth our grandson's father unnecessarily and very prematurely died. Throughout the case Mr. Young clearly and honestly communicated with us. He never promised us a settlement, he just promised us his best effort. Thanks to Mr. Young's diligence and thorough knowledge of the law, our grandson has a more secure future. Thank you Mr. Young.

Outstanding representation
Following a horrible head-on car crash in which I was badly injured by an uninsured driver, I met with Mr. Young and was completely reassured that he would handle my case in as timely and thorough a fashion as possible. Mr. Young advised my husband and me regularly and kept close tabs on every stage of my rehabilitation. He showed great sensitivity to my emotional state, level of pain and frustraion. I developed an even stronger sense of trust in Mr. Young's experience, knowledge and intelligence as the case progressed. He was able to resolve the situation even sooner than I expected and I was very grateful for the compensation Mr Young was able to secure to help me move forward.

Child Medical Malpractice suit.
I went to Mr. Young with my own suspicions in our case and with his help I received answers that I didn't even know that I had. With his help and the help of his wonderful paralegal we went through the hardest time of our lives with them by our side all the way. He is very thorough, and takes his job very seriously. When you are his client he makes you feel like you are the only one he has. He is very devoted to the legality of a case, but more important he is devoted to you as a person. He took our family under his wing and guided us every step of the way. It was if he had lost our daughter even though he had never met her, she wasn't just a case she was a person to him. I have had only high praises to say about him to anyone that would listen. I would recommend him to anyone. Many times lawyers get a bad reputation as "ambulance chasers" not Mr. Young he doesn't work that way. He is out for justice and answers, not just compensation. A small personal firm but with a wealth of background and knowledge to back it up. Honestly I never "googled" him until our case was over and I sat back in awe of his accomplishments and background and that was after the fact. In closing I must say he is a wonderful lawyer as well as a wonderful person. That does make a difference in the line of work he is in.
