About Me

Attorney Mary Gurganus has joined forces with Elizabeth Stephenson to form Triangle Divorce Lawyers.  She still provides the same high level of legal services and care to her clients.  She loves practicing law.  On a personal note, Mary is originally from Maryland and attended Loyola University.  Mary lives in Cary, NC with her husband and three children.  Mary is a voracious reader.  When she is not working, you can find her relaxing on a pier or boat.
