O. Drew Grice, Jr.
Drew has been litigating and trying cases since 1995 in numerous counties throughout North Carolina. He currently serves as managing partner for the North Carolina general liability section of the firm, and his practice is devoted to defending individuals and companies in matters arising out of the operation of private automobiles and commercial vehicles. Drew also handles the firm’s nursing home litigation.
He is a member of the North Carolina State Bar, the Virginia State Bar, and the North Carolina Federal District Court for the Eastern District. Drew was voted one of Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite by his peers in the legal community, a distinction that recognizes the state’s top lawyers in business and litigation-related categories. He has also been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America as one of the country’s top insurance defense litigators.
Drew completed undergraduate school at Hampden-Sydney College and law school at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law where he served as an assistant editor of the Cumberland Law Review and taught legal research and writing skills to first year law students.
He has been invited to speak before several local medical societies to discuss medical malpractice issues and at skilled nursing facilities to discuss issues in long term care. In addition to speaking on issues involving health care, Drew regularly speaks to groups of other professionals involved in civil defense litigation concerning current topics of interest within the industry.
Outside of the courtroom, Drew enjoys giving back to the community. He was a long-time member of the Institutional Review Board at Wayne Memorial Hospital and a member of the Vestry at St. Stephens Episcopal Church.
When not practicing law, Drew spends time with his family, chases his three dogs, watches too many movies and searches vintage shops looking for albums to add to his collection of classic vinyl.
