I attended the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and graduated with a degree in economics in 1967. I served in the United States Army with the 2nd Infantry Division in the DMZ of Korea in 1968 and 1969. I attended the University of North Carolina Law School in Chapel Hill on the G.I. Bill and graduated in 1972. Immediately after graduating, I was licensed to practice law and did so in Graham, NC for 3 years. I have had a general trial practice in Statesville, NC since returning home in 1975. I served as the 22nd Judicial District Bar Councilor for nine years (representing Alexander and Iredell Counties). With regard to the North Carolina State Bar Association, I am the past chairman of the LAMP Committee (Legal Assistance to Military Personnel Committee).
Luke S. Martin
I am a native of Hiddenite North Carolina where I still live on a farm that has been in my family since the 18th century. I grew up doing farm chores and still enjoy working and hunting in the outdoors. I graduated from West Iredell High School in 2003. I earned my private pilot license in 2002 when I was 18 years old and have been an aviation enthusiast since that time. After graduation I attended Mendenhall School of Auctioneering and earned my Auctioneers License in 2003. I eventually settled in to work with a local heating, air conditioning, and plumbing company. I started out as a helper and worked my way up to a retail sales professional and job coordinator. I have been a member of Rocky Hill Church since 2005. I married my wife Jessica in 2007 and decided to further my education in 2009. I graduated summa cum laude from Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Religion. I continued my education at Liberty University School of Law and graduated Juris Doctor, May 2015. My focus in law school was on business transaction law and business planning. I am proud to serve my neighbors here in Iredell and surrounding counties with Benbow and Phillips, P.C.
