Family law is my passion and it’s all I’ve practiced for the past 18 years. I enjoy taking the time to really get to know my clients and learn their story. This gives me the chance to dig deep to discover their ultimate goals and work with them to develop a winning strategy. That means sitting face to face with them, if possible, and sharing the pros and the cons of their case. Family law cases are often times filled with bitter emotions and resentment and I won’t sugar coat it. I’m upfront and honest about the likely outcome. Every case has it’s good and bad, and my job is to put your facts and circumstances in the best light to get you the best outcome.
I have extensive experience helping North Carolina families struggling with issues like:

How to be the best parent you can be when going through a separation or divorce.
Helping develop a plan to get out of an abusive relationship.
Determining if you should receive or pay child or spousal support.
What’s the best division of the marital property for you and your long term goals?

I understand the emotional upheaval and stress experienced by families facing separation and divorce. Using expert knowledge of North Carolina family law and over 18 years of practice in the field, I am dedicated to providing steadfast support and guidance to each and every client.
