    You have a number of errors here, chief being the incorrect photo for Tom Lambeth. Your last sentence about him cuts off too early; it notes that he is a “specialist in Federal Criminal.”

    If you look at the Times-News or Alamance News ads for Lambeth, you will see his photos – which show your photo is wrong, and he is a much younger man. The Times-News wrote about him: Name: Tom Lambeth

    Age: 49

    Home: Burlington

    Career highlights: Private practice in Alamance County for 22 years; first attorney in Alamance County to be board certified as a specialist in state and federal criminal law; past member and chairman of the Alamance-Burlington Board of Education; appointed district court judge in August 2007.
