About the Firm

Mr. Weaver initially began practicing law in 1984 with former North Carolina Attorney General Rufus Edmisten, as Edmisten & Weaver. In 1988, Edmisten left to return to an elected position as North Carolina's Secretary of State, and Weaver joined with Larry McBennett the next year to form a partnership known as Weaver & McBennett. From 1992 - 2015, Reagan Weaver was sole proprietor of the firm Capitol District Law Offices.

Mr. Weaver is a frequent mediator of disputes and has mediated hundreds of cases in North Carolina as a certified Mediator in the state and federal courts. Mr. Weaver serves also as an Arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and the National Arbitration Forum.

In addition to his service as a neutral, Mr. Weaver is an Administrative Law Judge and Hearing Examiner for the North Carolina Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission (OSHA).

He entered the practice of law convinced that alternatives to litigation were an important direction for the development of our justice system.  In 1984, he joined the NCBA’s Task Force on Alternatives to Litigation as a Reporter for its Court-based alternatives subcommittee, working with Justice Exum, who was very interested in alternative dispute resolution.  That group of bar leaders ended up leading lawyers into the new century with the institutionalization of mediation and other Alternative Dispute Resolution processes in our court system. 

In 2008, Mr. Weaver was selected as an inaugural member of The North Carolina Academy of Superior Court Mediators. View his profile: http://www.ncmediators.org/reagan-weaver
