About Woodruff & Fortner Attorneys


Woodruff & Fortner originated as a solo practice established by Gordon Woodruff in 1996. In 2001, Dionne Fortner combined her solo practice with Gordon such that a firm was established to offer a larger number of practice areas and more expertise and support to our clients. Nicki Sanderson joined the firm as an associate in 2012, becoming a partner in 2015. Our lawyers combine their experience for a total of 67 practice years, including litigation in state and federal trial courts and administrative agencies and appellate work in the North Carolina Court of Appeals and North Carolina Supreme Court.
