Thereafter, Nonie was promoted to the felony criminal trial division and represented accused first, second, and third degree felony offenders. Nonie's time as a litigation attorney with the Public Defender's office has garnered her with an immense amount of trial, litigation, negotiation and legal writing experience. 

In February of 2016 Nonie moved from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Utah and and began working for the Utah Administrative Office of the Courts as their Domestic Violence Program Coordinator. As the Domestic Violence Program Coordinator, Nonie was a point of contact for Judges, Commissioners, court staff, and court patrons on all domestic violence related issues. Nonie assisted in developing and interpreting policies, procedures, rules and regulations as they applied to the courts and domestic violence. She also created and implemented state wide trainings for Utah Judges on relevant domestic violence and family law statutory changes, case law changes and policy changes. While working with the Administrative Office of the Courts Nonie was studying for the Utah Bar Exam. After she successfully passed the Utah Bar Exam, Nonie accepted a position as an Associate Attorney with Just Law, bringing her trial advocacy and negotiation skills with her for her clients. Nonie is now a managing partner of Just Law, LLC.

Nonie lives with her husband Matthew, their baby girl Annabelle, and their dog Bear in Park City, Utah. Nonie enjoys many hobbies including: skiing, biking, hiking, yoga, cooking and traveling. 

Nonie's practice area is primarily based out of Park City, Utah and the greater Salt Lake City, Utah area. However, Nonie is expanding her practice to include Washington County cases. Nonie will be accepting St. George clients and traveling to the greater St. George area to offer Washington County residents a new local attorney with the big city legal experience.

Excellent Divorce Team
Nonie and her team staying in constant contact with me during my divorce process and we’re readily available if I had questions. I felt like I had someone in my corner who understood all the issues.

Fight Fire with Fire
I chose Just Law because of the female staff. I asked myself, " who would fight an angry wife better than another female? " I also thought it would be best to unify Just Law, to me, and I nicknamed us “Team Nonie”. Nonie Ferguson Carter and the Just Law team did an outstanding job from start to finish. They were meticulous crunching the numbers from both financial disclosures. Nonie didn't take any crap from opposing counsel. I definitely recommend Just Law and will use them again if needed.

Happy I chose them
I dont do reviews...But in this case I must....It was not a divorce but a custody case, it is complicated but showed people's true colors and how low they can stoop...Nonie and her team Melinda, Sharnae, and Jenifer really pulled through. Im thankful they were chosen to represent my case.

NONIE IS HANDS DOWN THEE BEST
I was staring down a very serious situation in my case, a 2.5 year uphill battle that Nonie & her team took on full force. In the end, I totally came out on top, I love how Nonie & her team operate, straight as an arrow & on point at all times ready to handle business. Would 1,000% recommend!!!

Opposing Attorney Abuse
My apposing attorney's aim was to break me financially and mentally until I defaulted to petitioners unreasonable demands. I cannot imagine if any other attorney other than Nonie would have been able to defend me as gracefully as she did. Nonie is simple, direct and solidified and she was there to defend me and she defended me gracefully. I also give lots of credit to her paralegal Sharnae as well as the rest of her team. You will not regret having her as your defending attorney!

Nonie is Amazing!
I hired Nonie for my divorce case after my first attorney informed me she was no longer practicing family law and that I would have to find a new attorney to complete my case. After over 2 years of nothing happening on my case, Nonie and Sharnae had it wrapped up within 2 months. My ex's parents had hired one of the most expensive law firms in Utah, and the case was on the verge of going to trial. Nonie was able to assist in getting the case negotiated without going to trial which saved me tens of thousands, and a ton of additional time and stress involved. Sharnae and Nonie both were of utmost professionalism throughout the entire process, and hit the ground running from the second I hired them for my case. I wholeheartedly recommend Nonie, Sharnae, and Just Law for anyone going through a tough divorce situation. My only regret is that I didn't hire them sooner, as I believe it would have alleviated a lot of time, money, and stress on my part in dealing with an attorney who's actions compounded on top of an already difficult situation.

Miracle Worker
Not only is she the best lawyer experience I have ever had, but she also made me feel like she actually cared and was genuinely empathetic to my situation. I would recommend Nonie and her team at Just Law to anyone in need of a family lawyer. They are as professional as it gets and I will be forever thankful for what they have done for me and their hard work. Thank you.

Amazing!!
Nonie came in and helped me in pretty complex, my boyfriends bitter ex girlfriend type of situation. That myself, and my children were unfortunately dragged into. CPS was involved, she got paperwork in right away " she was on time to court, she answered all of my questions day-night, even on the weekend! Nonie is very straightforward, Cutthroat, she does not play games, she will tell you that right away. So if you are hiring her oh, you are hiring her to step into a ring and fight basically. My situation was very Petty and quick, I have been represented by Laura at the same firm many years ago, for a custody case. I would go to this firm for the littlest things, to the most serious of thing's. They treat you like family, they treat you like a human being, they treat you like people..who have children, jobs, lives, bills. This firm knows what to do, you're not just a walking ATM, you are not disposable to them. They are not like other firms who just want your money, Nonie is like the mom and pop shop you take your vehicle to because you know it's going to get done, and you know it's going to be done right. Nonie is your Advocate, your voice!

Great lawyer!
Nonie helped me with a contempt case (she was not the lawyer I had with the custody case but I wish I knew about her then). She was very knowledgeable and made it clear what would and would not be helpful. She is very upfront yet personable and her office was great to work with as well. They were very easy to get a hold of and helpful with any questions or concerns I had. I used her office recently for a expungement and they made it a breeze. I read so many awful stories about expungements that I decided not to go through the process myself and I am so glad I didn’t. Once I received my certificate of eligibility, the rest of the process was over in 3 months (including a notice stating it was removed). I will be going back for future issues that arise and would recommend to anyone in need.

Nonie's the best!
I can't say enough about Just Law's Norine (Nonie) Ferguson and her staff. Starting on day one I felt like I was in competent, caring hands. Everything was explained to me, and if I didn't understand something or had questions, I could send an e-mail or call and usually receive an answer within just a few hours. I felt Nonie did an excellent job at my mediation and she definitely had my back. I was very happy with the way things turned out. The support staff at Just Law are also very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient, and helped me numerous times. I would just like to say, again, thanks so much everybody for getting me through this difficult time.

Best attorney in Salt Lake
Noni & Sharnae are amazing and made the process painless. The entire staff was easy to deal with and they communicate in a timely and efficient manner. Noni really took the time to listen to the case and understand the details of the situation. Not only did she take the time to listen to the case, but she also remembered the case and specific details that were important during the hearings. She is very confident in the court room, prepared and communicates well in court. She is very knowledgeable and does her research. We won twice! I would recommend her to everyone.

Very Professional and Personable
Nonie did a great job navigating my divorce with an out of state spouse. She was quick to respond to my questions and I was comfortable knowing that I could trust her to guide the way. She was very professional and did a great job representing me and my interests. I also found her associates, Melissa and Conner, pleasant and easy to work with too. I would recommend Nonie and Just Law to all my family and friends.

Outstanding divorce trial defense
Nonie (Norine) did an excellent job representing me in court during my divorce trial. After trying to negotiate the case for a year and a half with a different lawyer, I decided to hire Nonie. This was the best choice I could’ve made for my case. She was on top of everything since day one. She communicated very well about every step leading up to the trial date. She prepared extensively for the case. Her dedication paid off and she was able to reach a deal in half of the time allotted for the trial. I would undoubtedly recommend her services to anyone dealing with a complicated divorce case. The staff at her firm are all very professional and friendly. Overall I had an excellent experience.

Legal Ninja, Amazing attorney, the best
If you are like me, and having the worst time of your life. If you are sleepless, distraught and feel all alone and lost in a land of legal nightmare in this terrible thing called divorce. I would like to tell you from the bottom of my heart, that Norine Ferguson and her team. are absolutely the best group of professional lawyers I have ever worked with. Every member of her team is caring and attentive. I have been met with compassion and understanding. I think that’s because the experience she has, she has seen a situation similar, or her colleagues at JUST LAW have. She has helped guide me through the absolute worst time and experience in my life. Her mastery of law is second to none. The only reason I get any sleep at night, the only reason that pit in the bottom of my stomach goes away is because of Norine and her team. I can’t rave enough about her. I will forever be in their debt for the service they have provided me. So if you are like me and you think that Men don’t get a fair chance, and there is unfortunately a lot of truth to that. If you think your voice won’t be heard. With a legal lioness by your side to roar your for your voice. So brother I suggest you chose Norine Ferguson and her elite team. One bit of cation they are not about to tell you what you want to here, they will give you the no BS truth, if you need that go elsewhere. They tell you what you need to hear.

Nonie was great. All of her assistants that I’ve been asking endless amounts of questions to you are so quick to get back to me and so polite even when I think I’m asking something stupid. Highly recommend this firm. They’re making my divorce a lot easier to get through.

Above and Beyond.
Nonie told me I had a solid case, she broke down the flat fees for me and pretty much held my hand every step of the way. Mellisa and Erin had no problems getting the answered I needed and were so sweet about it even though I called a bunch of time. I truly believe if it was not for Nonie and her teams diligent and strategic antics I wouldn’t have my daughter in my custody. I would like to also give Conor Murphy a huge shout out. Best paralegal ever. He was straightforward and incredibly helpful. He even stayed late to work on my case. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney and team. You guys rock.
