About Us

At Thurman, Wilson, Boutwell & Galvin P.A., we are a general practice firm which emphasizes professional, proven and caring service to our clients. Although we represent a number of larger companies, we focus our attention on the personal needs of our patrons. Our firm understands that each person’s issues are unique and each client receives individual, personalized attention, rather than a uniform “cookie cutter” service.

Thurman, Wilson, Boutwell & Galvin P.A., originated in 1988 in a private practice firm co-founded by our senior partner, W. David Thurman. Samuel A. Wilson, III joined in 1991 as a partner after his term as a Superior Court Judge for the State of North Carolina ended. John D. Boutwell associated in 1993 and became a partner in 1999.

James Galvin joined the firm in 2006 after serving as a trial prosecutor in Mecklenburg County. Mr. Galvin became a partner in 2010 and managing partner in 2014.

During its existence, our firm has provided services to a variety of clients in many different forums. The principals have focused on care of their clients and tried to maintain a family atmosphere in its method of operation. Thurman, Wilson, Boutwell & Galvin P.A. strives to define expectations clearly at the beginning of representation and then continue to communicate meaningfully about the matter during the course of the attorney/client relationship.

James Galvin is the most honest and forthright attorney I ever met. He has been a pleasure to work with. If I ever need an attorney again, James will be my choice. I know he will work hard on your behalf to help resolve the matter to your best interest.
