Founding Attorney Rebecca J. Lawrence

I  grew up in the suburbs of Memphis Tennessee, and like many people here in Charlotte, I relocated to North Carolina after completing my graduate studies.  In law school I spent my time studying and working at my internships. Unlike most of my classmates, I attended law school after completing a postgraduate degree and entering the workforce. My postgraduate studies were focused in criminology and criminal justice, in which I largely focused on studying the generational transmission of domestic violence. I had every intention of then pursuing a career in law enforcement after law school, and spent my law school years working at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I also interned at a well-established family law firm before receiving my law license.

Following law school I decided to practice law for a period of time before planning on returning to the Bureau. It was during this time that I decided to commit to the practice of law. I worked at the firm I had interned at and another highly respected family law firm in Charlotte before opening Freedom Law | North Carolina. While I am grateful for my past opportunities and the experience I gained from my former positions, over the years I realized there is a disconnect between the traditional ways of practicing law and meeting today’s clients’ needs. If I were a client, I would not only want an attorney who is competent and able to handle my case, I would want an attorney that I could relate to and really feel like my story is important. That is what I hope to bring to my clients at Freedom Law | North Carolina. It is your life, your path, and your choice. I’m just here to help guide you through it.

In my spare time, I enjoy a number of things. My husband, a First Sergeant in the Army National Guard, and I have four dogs (Sandy, Mac, Penelope “Pen Devil”, and Bella) that keep us out and active. When I have time to myself, you will find me in my art studio working on paintings or refinishing old furniture.
