“At MWB, we strive to provide our clients with practical, timely advice and counsel. I’m grateful to work in a culture that contributes to making our community a better place to live and work.” – Sabrina Presnell Rockoff, Managing Shareholder of the Firm

How We Work.

The diverse knowledge and work experience of our attorneys allow us to provide client-focused, collaborative legal services.  Our attorneys have practiced in over fifteen states and with international firms, the federal government, and the Armed Forces.  We are business owners, local government leaders, CPAs, writers, consultants, volunteers, parents, and neighbors.  We work together, using our wide range of talents and expertise, to provide the most efficient and effective representation to our clients.

A Client-Focused Practice.

At McGuire Wood & Bissette, we value our relationships with our clients and are committed to providing personal and practical advice and advocacy.  We understand the importance of discussing our clients’ goals, the potential risks and rewards, and the costs and other resources involved.  Although many of our attorneys worked in larger markets and firms, we have chosen to practice at McGuire Wood & Bissette because we prioritize developing one-on-one relationships with each client.  We are dedicated to providing personal, client-centered counsel and are invested in our clients’ success.

A History of Commitment.

McGuire Wood & Bissette has been a pillar of the Western North Carolina community since 1894.  In addition to our professional commitments, our attorneys and staff donate their time and energy to charitable organizations and causes, serve on a wide variety of non-profit boards, and are significantly involved in local government.  We fully understand that when the community, state, and region grow and thrive, our clients benefit too.  Our dedication is evidenced in the service our clients receive and our service to the local community.
