About Our Legal Team

Christopher L. Mewborn and Brett J. DeSelms were the founding attorneys of Mewborn & DeSelms, Attorneys at Law. The firm originated in 1997 as Mewborn Law Office, later becoming Mewborn & DeSelms when Mr. DeSelms, a 2007 law school graduate, earned partnership status. J. Timothy Wilson, a law school classmate of Mr. DeSelms, joined the practice in 2018 and is now an owner as well.

Each of these attorneys are eastern North Carolina natives and distinguished graduates of The Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University in North Carolina. Each are firmly committed to the pursuit of excellence in providing quality legal representation to individuals, business and local government entities throughout eastern North Carolina and beyond. It is their mission to adhere to the strictest personal and professional ethics while delivering unfaltering dedication and client service.

Christopher L. Mewborn

Attorney Mewborn has been practicing law in North Carolina since 1991. Mr. Mewborn clerked for the Honorable Sidney S. Eagles, former Chief Judge of the North Carolina Court of Appeals, for two years before entering private practice in the Raleigh area. He returned to his hometown of Jacksonville in 1997 to establish Mewborn Law Office and serve his community with quality legal representation through a general law practice. More recently, he teamed with attorney Brett DeSelms to create the law firm of Mewborn & DeSelms, Attorneys at Law, which he co-owns.

Today, Mr. Mewborn maintains a busy real estate and workers’ compensation practice and also counsels clients in matters pertaining to civil litigation, personal injury, business and corporate law, and wills and estates.
