About Moody, Williams, Roper & Lee LLP
Moody, Williams & Roper, LLP., has served Chatham County's legal needs since 1927 when J. Lee Moody began his legal practice. In 1955, his son Jack A. Moody began practicing with him, and the firm's name changed to Moody and Moody, Attorneys and Counselors at Law.
J. Lee Moody subsequently became a judge, and Jack A. Moody continued his legal practice while also serving in the North Carolina Legislature. Needing another lawyer to help with his expanding client base, Jack A. Moody asked J. Samuel Williams to join the firm in 1970. The firm's name changed to Moody, Moody & Williams, Attorneys and Counselors at Law.
Jack and Sam practiced together until 1990 when Jack retired from the practice of law. Sam then began his search for a new law partner and asked C. Todd Roper to join the firm in 1990. The firm's name changed to Moody, Williams & Roper, Attorneys and Counselors at Law.
North Carolina law established limited liability partnerships, and in 2001, Moody, Williams & Roper became a limited liability partnership, and changed its name to Moody, Williams & Roper, LLP. Sam and Todd continued to practice together, but given Chatham County's growth, they decided to hire another lawyer to serve Chatham County. The search ended with the employment of Joshua A. Lee in 2007.
Sam retired on December 30,2009, and in 2010, Josh became a partner with the firm necessitating another name change to Moody, Williams, Roper & Lee, LLP. Todd and Josh are currently enjoying their practice together and intend to keep the firm's legal tradition going strong.
