Our Story

AboutUs1-191x300Attorney Erica Nesmith and Ruby Rucker Cooper, both graduates of the prestigious all women’s Spelman College, met during transitional periods in their lives. Ms. Nesmith had just completed law school and was pursuing opportunities within the Charlotte Mecklenburg legal community. Yet, she felt apprehensive about beginning a traditional legal career working as an associate in someone else’s firm. She knew this would not be the best use of her talents and would not be the best way to serve her community. In a similar fashion, Mrs. Rucker who had practiced earlier in her career but took time off to raise her three children, was just finishing filming an upcoming nationally syndicated reality docu-series for the WeTv network about her prominent South Carolina family. Mrs. Rucker knew that this was a great time in her life to continue practicing law.

Both Erica and Ruby learned they had similar ideology on life, love, and law. In addition they both have strong roots to excellent members of the legal community. It was in this spirit that they founded and started Nesmith and Rucker, LLP.

Nesmith and Rucker, LLP is conveniently located in the vibrant Ballantyne area of Charlotte, North Carolina with direct highway access to South Carolina.
