James “Jimbo” S. Perry Named as New Executive Director of the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism


Lawyers Mutual congratulates Kinston attorney Jimbo Perry on his appointment as the new Executive Director of the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism. Perry replaces former Executive Director Melvin Wright.

The announcement was made in a January 29, 2024, press release from the North Carolina Judicial Branch. “I have observed Jimbo Perry for over forty years and find that he is the epitome of professionalism,” said Chief Justice Paul Newby.

Perry has dedicated his life to service in the profession and his personal life. Perry has served as a member of the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism and is the recipient of the Citizen Lawyer Award, John B. McMillan Distinguished Service Award, Tommy Jarrett Service Award, QC Honors Recognition, Southern Star Recognition, and the 2021 Chief Justice's Professionalism Award.

No doubt, he will bring this same passion to his role as Executive Director. “I am honored to be selected for this important role,” said Perry. “I hope to make a real and positive contribution to the pursuit to enhance professionalism in our legal community.”
