Our Story

Henson P. Barnes

Henson P. Barnes

Our firm was started more than fifty 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 & Kinsey, PLLC, has a distinguished reputation. It is a full-service office consisting of outstanding trial attorneys and staff members. They have an extensive and recognized practice in criminal defense, complex civil and business litigation, real estate transactions, family law, personal injury, workers’ compensation, and estate planning.

If you are searching for a firm with a breadth of skills and areas of expertise, then it is important to look for law firms that focus on a wide spectrum of legal fields. Many legal matters require lawyers experienced in various practice areas.
