About Judge Quintin McGee

My judicial philosophy is based upon the fundamental principle that each case should be decided based on two things: the facts and the law. I work diligently to provide a courtroom environment where each litigant has a full and fair opportunity to have their matter heard and decided in an objective, impartial manner. Having served as a defense attorney, prosecutor, and now as a District Court Judge, I have over a decade of relevant courtroom experience that I rely upon daily in order to ensure that my courtroom operates in an efficient and effective manner. 

I began my career in 2010 working as an attorney in private practice representing individuals in both civil and criminal District Court and later had the privilege of representing the citizens of Bladen, Brunswick, and Columbus Counties as an Assistant District Attorney from 2012-2020. Over the course of the eight years, I served as a prosecutor, I spent two years working as the primary District Court prosecutor in Brunswick County (2012-2014), two years in Columbus County as a Superior Court prosecutor (2014-2016), and four years as the Chief Assistant District Attorney in Bladen County (2016-2020). In November 2020, I was appointed to serve as a District Court Judge for Bladen, Brunswick, and Columbus Counties.

Beyond my career in public service, I feel a duty to give back to my community through volunteering. I am active in the community by serving as a board member with the Cape Fear Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Communities in Schools of Brunswick County, the United Way of the Cape Fear Area, and volunteering with the 13th Judicial District’s Teen Court program. Additionally, in 2021, I was appointed by the Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court to serve on the Chief Justice’s Task Force on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Informed Courts. The task force’s mission is to understand the impact of ACEs on children and to develop strategies for addressing them within our court system.

More information about the Chief Justice’s ACEs Task Force can be found here.

Outside of my work and community involvement, I also enjoy participating in athletics, reading and traveling. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2007 as a double major with bachelor’s degrees in Economics and Management & Society and later graduated from North Carolina Central University School of Law in 2010.  I have been a Leland resident since 2013 where I reside with my wife, Veronica, who is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and serves as the Director of the Leland Senior Center. We have one son, John Carleton "J.C." McGee.
