About Margaret

Learn Margaret’s areas of practice.

I am passionate about the law and I care about my clients. These qualities make me a strong advocate to have on your side during this very difficult time in your life. As a mother, I know how much your children mean to you and how you would do anything to shelter them from harm. Children are often the innocent victims in their parents’ divorce. While it may be impossible to shield them entirely from the impact of your divorce, I will work with you to minimize the impact on your children as much as possible. My goal is to educate you regarding North Carolina law and how it applies to your case, so that you understand all your options. Divorce can be a terrifying experience, but I will empower you with the knowledge of what to expect every step of the way. I majored in mathematics and then worked in the banking industry for many years prior to becoming an attorney, so I have a strong financial background to handle complex financial support and property division cases. I’ve represented clients in Brunswick, Forsyth, Davie, Davidson, Rowan, Alexander, Iredell, Catawba, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Gaston and Union counties, on matters involving child custody, child support, equitable distribution, post-separation support, alimony, contempt, and breach of contract claims. Not every case requires litigation, and many cases can be resolved out of court using alternative dispute resolution methods such as collaborative law, arbitration, and mediation. But if litigation becomes necessary, you can rely on my years of trial experience to protect your interests in the courtroom.

She was excellent
I hired Molly for a prenuptial and even though she was very busy I felt she really gave it her all which was very good. I found her to be thorough, highly knowledgeable, accessible, and professional. I would definitely recommend her as a family lawyer.

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful
I am consulting with Molly about my family law related matter/case and she is extremely knowledgeable, thoroughly researches all questions and ensured all my questions were answered, and gave me extremely sound guidance. She deals with you directly and I didn't have to get communications with her through other professionals. I would highly recommend her and I believe she can be trusted. Her rates are also reasonable.

Not a Satisfied Customer
Molly was friendly but she only did the minimum for me. I hired her to draft a separation agreement and she relayed my wishes to my husband's attorney. However her feedback and advice to was neutral without her explaining all of my options or the consequences of taking action. She did not take the time to help me strategize. It often took her 1-2 weeks to answer my emails. This made the process take longer than it should have. I got a second opinion from another lawyer, who helped me strategize more effectively, which why I stopped using her legal service.
