About me

I am a board certified Family Law Specialist by the North Carolina State Bar, and have been since 2009.  I specialize in all areas of custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution, as well as pre- and post-nuptial agreements.

I have been recognized by Martindale Hubbell as having the highest ethical and legal standards in the community. I have also been selected as a Super Lawyers' Rising Star by Charlotte Magazine every year since 2011, which is a nominated process regognizing the state's top up-and-coming attorneys.

Recently, I obtained my certification as a Family Financial Mediator by the state's Dispute Resolution Commission, which allows me another opportunity to help families going through a state of transition.
