About James Thomas Amburgey

Attorney Biography

Thomas Amburgey is a board-certified specialist in state criminal law. As a former prosecutor with the Office of the District Attorney for Buncombe County, he handled thousands of cases, ranging from minor offenses like speeding tickets to capital offenses like first-degree murder. That experience gives him an immeasurable advantage in the courtroom.

Because pleas are often made and charges can be dismissed, many criminal law attorneys only experience a handful of trials in their entire careers. Thomas has successfully completed hundreds of bench trials and dozens of jury trials from both sides of the aisle. Regardless of your charge, Thomas Amburgey has the experience necessary to provide you with the best defense possible.

Thomas is an AV Preeminent Peer Rated Lawyer at Martindale Hubbell, America’s oldest and most respected peer-review entity, since 2017. He has been continuously recognized by North Carolina Super Lawyers Rising Stars since 2018 and in the Business North Carolina Legal Elite since 2019.
