Peter C. Buck Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson PA, Charlotte

You’ll often find me over at First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte for choir practice, certainly one of my very favorite things to do. I have been singing in the choir for almost 20 years, having been recruited in a moment of weakness by a desperate music director. I can't read the music, but I'm loud and I try hard and usually it works out. For me, the time spent rehearsing and singing — generally about four hours a week — is always fun and a great way to put the stress of the work world behind me for a while. I like the singing, I love the people, and I appreciate the time to reflect on important things.

Vita: Born May 8, 1947, in Kinston; bachelor’s and law degrees from Duke University; wife and two sons. Why he chose this field: I’ve always enjoyed transaction work because of the fast pace and because you can be a part of the team that gets important things done for the businesses that we work for. Memorable case: The acquisition by the Spangler family businesses of National Gypsum in 1995 was one I won’t forget. What he’d be if not a lawyer: Probably a teacher. Hero: Winston Churchill (one brave guy). Passions: My family, baseball and good books. Recent reading: Old Filth by the English author Jane Gardam. It’s a terrific story about an English barrister who made his fortune in Hong Kong (thus the acronym FILTH — failed in London try Hong Kong). Don’t ask him to: Keep my office neat. I’m just not capable.
