About Tamela

Learn Tamela’s areas of practice.


She has been licensed and practicing in the state of North Carolina since 1994. She obtained her North Carolina bar license immediately after graduating from North Carolina Central University School of Law. While at North Carolina Central University, Attorney Wallace was determined to do well and therefore excelled academically. As a result, she received several American Jurisprudence awards for academic excellence.

After obtaining her North Carolina license, Attorney Wallace worked several years as an associate attorney with other firms. While working as an associate, Attorney Wallace observed what she believed to be a shortage of attorney’s who were willing to provide competent and aggressive legal services to clients at affordable rates. It was then that Attorney Wallace decided to dedicate her legal skills to obtain justice for those who would otherwise slip through the judicial system.

Therefore, in 1999 she established the Law Office of Tamela T. Wallace, P.A. to provide competent legal services to those who could not afford representation by larger firms in the Charlotte and surrounding areas. Since that time, her office has grown and Attorney Wallace has successfully provided aggressive and competent legal representation to hundreds of clients for the last ten years.

The staff at the Law Office of Tamela T. Wallace, P.A. believes that each client is important. Therefore, they strive to treat each client with civility and respect, while diligently addressing every issue presented.

Attorney Wallace believes relationships with her professional peers are important as well. Therefore, she is a member of the following legal organizations: NC Bar Association, American Bar Association, NC Association of Women Attorneys and the Mecklenburg County Bar Association.

Attorney Kimberly Herron
I have had the distinct honor of working with Attorney Kimberly Herron as my attorney throughout my divorce proceedings in 2022-2023. She is both knowledgeable and professional. She is thorough in drafting documents in a timely manner and personable in her approach to responding to any of my questions or concerns. She has been available at all times that I have needed to reach out to her and has continuously put my best interests at the forefront of my case. I greatly appreciate the considerate manner in which she has handled my case and the time and dedication she has shown me during this process. She assisted me through all aspects of a very traumatic divorce and helped me feel at ease as she represented me in navigating this entire process. Her Paralegal, Justin, was personable, knowledgeable and efficient with keeping me updated throughout this process as well, and I am fortunate to have been able to work with each of them. Attorney Herron and Justin are unquestionably positive assets to this law firm. Attorney Wallace also represented me during a portion of this process and in doing so, she was confident, experienced and professional. It is with gratitude that I write this 5-star review. I highly recommend Attorney Kimberly Herron if you are seeking legal representation with a Family Law matter.

Attorney Kim Herron in the office of Tamara Wallace
I have been working with Ms. Kim Herron in Tamara Wallace's office on an domestic matter. Ms. Herron is a straight professional who listens and takes action to get justice. Are you having an issue with an ex-spouse? Do you know you are a good father and need the courts to recognize the welcome sacrifices you make for your children? I highly recommend Ms. Kim Herron. Having Ms. Herron as part of Ms. Wallace's team is a testament to the strength of this law firm.

Child Custody case
I was referred to the Tamela Wallace law firm by someone who spoke highly of their service and they were absolutely right. They were professional and well prepared. I was represented by Kimberly Herron who is great at what she does. Always available and studies her craft thoroughly. Long story short I was given primary custody of my son. If you’re a father looking to exercise your rights as I did, Kimberly Herron is the right choice!

Best of the best.
I from the start Attorney Wallace and her Law Firm has been absolutely outstanding to me and my case. I had no clue what to expect but they made my journey absolutely easy as possible for me. Tamela herself built a rapport with me allowing me not only to see someone who is professional but also a lawyer who cares. Attorney Wallace is force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. Her knowledge and experience proves that she's mastered her craft. Absolutely above and beyond what I expected and will always be appreciative of the excellence that she gave to me and my case. If ever in need of any type of attorney and Attorney Wallace office can cover it, I would highly highly recommend retaining Attorney Tamela Wallace to handle it for you. You will be beyond satisfied.

Simply the Best!!!
I did not know what to expect when I walked into the Law Office of Tamela T. Wallace. I was going through a divorce which was the most difficult challenge that I had ever been faced with. I knew early on during my first consultation that I had made the right choice with Attorney Wallace. I hired her on the spot. She put my mind at ease. I could tell right away that she was extremely knowledgeable and capable. She made me feel that my children and I were her top priority. She was my saving grace. I don't know what I would have done without her. Because of Attorney Wallace I got through my divorce with ease. She handled everything. I would ask her questions about what I thought were pressing issues and she would state "that's already been taken care of". Eventually I just stopped asking questions because I knew that she had it all figured out. Hiring Attorney Wallace was and still is the best decision that I have ever made. She is a force to be reckoned with!!!

Attorney Wallace is the best lawyer you could ever ask for. She is a top notch attorney! Mrs. Wallace took my case with 3 days notice of a court hearing and everything was pulled together beautifully without any uncertainty. Wallace did a superb job and ended up winning my case! I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a family law attorney. Excellent response time, very knowledgeable and will fight until the end for you. I will be forever grateful I chose the best. You are amazing!

I am so pleased with Atty T Wallace
Atty. Wallace was absolutely wonderful. Tamela was comforting and very knowledgeable. She seemed to care about me and my case. She argued and fought hard for my right to see my children and not pay a huge monthly payment to my ex. I couldn't be more pleased with her and the outcome.
