Chief Justice Commission on Professionalism Honors Retired Superior Court Judge Quentin T. Sumner

Lawyers Mutual congratulates retired Superior Court Judge Quentin T. Sumner, who was honored with the Chief Justice Commission on Professionalism (CJCP) Judicial District Professionalism Award. The award was presented to Judge Sumner by Chief Justice Paul Newby at an 8th District Bar luncheon and CLE presented by the CJCP and Lawyers Mutual. An announcement of the award was made in a press release from the North Carolin Judicial Branch.

“Judge Sumner is an outstanding example of professionalism that should be emulated by members of our legal community across North Carolina,” said Newby. “He is well deserving of this recognition, and I am truly thankful for his humble heart and dedicated service to our state.”

Judge Sumner served as a state District Court and Superior Court judge for 39 years. He holds a bachelor's degree from North Carolina Central University and a Juris Doctor from North Carolina Central University School of Law.



CJCP and Lawyers Mutual hold free CLE programs in local district bars for the enhancement of professionalism. These programs grant bar members the opportunity to celebrate the practice of law and meet with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina. The CLE hours often include two hours of ethics and professional responsibility training and one hour of mental health and anti-substance abuse education. Future programs are scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 2024, in Brunswick County, Wednesday, September 11, 2024, in Rutherford County,  and Tuesday, October 8, 2024, in Watauga County.
