I grew up in a small town in Southwest Virginia called Bristol. Growing up, I never
considered being an attorney. Only through my attendance at the University of Virginia did I fall in love with European History and develop a passion for advocacy.
Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies, I developed a fascination with the development of law as it relates to historical victims of oppression and abuse. Since then, I have dedicated my practice to giving a voice to those without one. As an attorney, I have been lucky enough to assist individuals with various legal issues, ranging from Family Law, including Divorce and Child Custody and Support, to other complex Civil Litigation matters. I have also pioneered two niche areas of law in North Carolina: Animal Law and Child Welfare Law. As an advocate for adopted and foster children, I represent foster and adoptive families against child welfare agencies. I also advocate for families and their four-legged family members with various issues, including “dangerous” dog hearings, Veterinary Malpractice, and other civil matters involving animals.
My goal is and has always been to diversify the field of Family Law to include non-traditional families with foster and/or adoptive children or those with only “furry children.” I am living my best life volunteering and fostering with animal rescue groups, traveling the world with my wonderful husband, and caring for our furry family of six dogs and one cat. Regardless of whether you prefer a “traditional” or “non-traditional” family, I have extensive litigation experience with various issues and will work with you to accomplish your goals so that your voice is heard.
