Lawyer Profile

If you want an attorney that can empathize, strategize, and capitalize, I am the Raleigh Family Law Attorney for you. Throughout my life, I have watched friends and family stumble their way through the legal system. From failed adoptions, nasty custody battles, and intervention of grandparents, I have seen it all. Going this tumultuous route alone rarely ends well. That’s why I became an attorney. All my life, I have desired one thing above all else: to help people. When I saw how much of an impact attorneys have on their clients, I knew that was the job for me. Now, I am here to walk alongside you through the hardest, most stressful times of life and to guide you when you don’t know which way to go. As a Raleigh Divorce Lawyer, the first thing I do is help my clients turn all of their concerns into identifiable goals. Then, I make sure that they understand the law, the obstacles, and the process they are about to enter into so that we can create a plan to achieve those goals. When the time comes, I will fight for you in all settings to make sure those divorce, custody, child support, equitable distribution, or alimony goals are met. Born and raised in small town Saluda, South Carolina, I can relate to people from all walks of life. I spent 18 years in a rural, farm town riding dirt roads and working with my granddaddy on his farm. I was an only child raised by two loving and supportive parents while some of my friends experienced the exact opposite. I spent the next four years in Charleston, South Carolina, as a beach bum making my way through college at the College of Charleston. There, I studied Sociology & Psychology and learned about the societal and internal factors that impact people more than we recognize. Now, the big city of Raleigh is home, and I have learned so much about the urban life through volunteering with at risk youth, working with business professionals, and building friendships with people from all different populations. As weird as it sounds, I fell in love with family law the first time I was exposed the inner workings of the court system. I had never felt more at home than the first time I stepped into the courtroom. After moving to Raleigh, NC to attend Campbell Law School, I continued developing a love for litigation while fine tuning the practical skills I would need in this field. Because of that training, I am fully prepared to handle your case from start to finish. While I enjoy helping my clients settle cases through a separation agreement or mediation, I will never back down from a fight. I want to be the top family law attorney for you. My diverse work experience will also allow me to view your case from a broader perspective. As an Assistant District Attorney, I learned the ins and outs of the criminal justice system, including officer priorities, prosecution strategies, and your rights under the law. As an intern with the Department of Social Services, I learned how to cooperate with social workers from various stages to optimize investigation and reunification efforts. As a female family law attorney, I combine all of these experiences to provide you with holistic answers to your questions and guidance that will protect you from multiple angles.
