Spencer S. Fritts started his legal career in 2018, serving as a judicial law clerk at the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
During his time at the Court of Appeals, he had the privilege of clerking for three separate judges on the Court—Judges Ann Marie Calabria, Tobias S. Hampson, and John M. Tyson. Spencer’s time spent at the Court of Appeals instilled in him the importance of protecting those who are injured or killed by the negligence of others.
In 2020, he took his passion for helping others into private practice, joining the firm of Oxendine Barnes & Associates PLLC, where he concentrated on personal injury work, including wrongful death, medical negligence, and auto torts.
Now with the Law Offices of John M. McCabe, Spencer continues to represent victims and their families throughout North Carolina and across the country. His practice focuses on representing people who have been injured by trucking collisions, medical negligence, defective products, and on-the-job accidents.
Spencer is a proud member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), American Association for Justice (AAJ), North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA), and Wake County Bar Association (WCBA), where he has had the privilege of serving in leadership roles within both the NCAJ and NCBA.
Having had numerous mentors throughout his legal career who engrained in him the importance of volunteering, he is passionate about his work with these organizations.
Spencer earned his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Campbell Law School, graduating in the top twenty percent of his class. During law school, he was the symposium editor of the Campbell Law Review and a student representative for the North Carolina Bar Association.
Spencer was published in the Campbell Law Review as a student for his note on the intersection of administrative law and an employee’s right to their tips, which was subsequently cited with approval in a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.
He also completed externships with the North Carolina Court of Appeals and the Raleigh City Attorney’s Office, as well as serving as a research assistant for three different law school professors.
Spencer earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of South Carolina Honors College. Outside of the office, he enjoys spending time on his boat, playing golf, and following the Gamecocks.
