Carter B. Cole grew up in Cary, North Carolina, where he attended Cary High School and
excelled in multiple sports. Carter then took his talents to Campbell University in Buies Creek
where he played football, before transferring to North Carolina State University, where he earned
a B.S. in Political Science with a minor in Pulp and Paper Technology. After graduating from
N.C. State, Carter continued his education by attending the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of
Law at Campbell University in Raleigh, North Carolina.

While at Campbell Law, Carter was a class representative for Campbell’s Student Bar
Association, sat on numerous committees, and was actively involved in Campbell Law’s
nationally ranked Advocacy Program, specifically the Pro Football Contract Negotiations team,
where Carter and his team placed in the top 10 nationally. In the classroom, Carter was awarded
the prestigious Book Award for earning the highest grade in his Estate Planning class. Carter
achieved this while also obtaining a Master of Trust and Wealth Management degree from
Campbell University’s Lundy-Fetterman School of Business, graduating Summa Cum Laude
from that program.

At the culmination of his law school career, Carter was rewarded for his outstanding character
and hard work by receiving the 2021 Howard Memorial Christian Citizenship Award, and the
2021 North Carolina Advocates for Justice Student Advocacy Award.
Carter’s practice at Envisage Law consists of various different practice areas, but his primary
focus is on Tax, Estate, and Corporate Planning.

Outside of the practice of law, Carter enjoys spending time with his family and is an avid fan of
N.C. State Athletics. When he is not watching the Wolfpack compete or hanging out with his
family, Carter enjoys reading, playing tennis, and getting involved in the local community.
