About Us

Our firm was started more than 60 years ago…

by the late Henson P. Barnes and Gene Braswell and existed for most of its history as Barnes, Braswell & Haithcock. Henson had a distinguished legal and public service career serving in the North Carolina Senate as President Pro-Tem of the Senate. Gene was known throughout the state as an outstanding trial lawyer and had a natural talent of persuasion. Most recently, Tim Haithcock retired in 2015 after decades of recognition as a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation law.

Today, the law firm of Haithcock, Barfield, Hulse & King, PLLC, has a distinguished reputation. It is a full-service office consisting of outstanding attorneys and staff members. They have an extensive and recognized practice in criminal defense, complex civil and business litigation, family law, probate law, and estate planning.
