Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Jay Anthony Audino

    I endorse Kellie. Kellie and I both represented parents in child abuse and neglect cases. While Kellie has practiced in this area of law for many years, she was new to how things operated in Pitt County, as opposed to Wake County. Kellie immediately acquiesced to our court setting, and thanks to her ability to adapt to the new setting, she was able to serve her clients very well, which she continues to do.
