My client’s goals are my goals. I genuinely care about putting clients in the best position possible to heal and that will be apparent to the opposing party, judge, and most importantly, my client.

Meredith is a native of Statesville, North Carolina, but her love for Raleigh has made it her permanent home. Meredith received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Wake Forest University, where she spent a vast amount of her time on Salem Lake with the Wake Forest Rowing Club. Upon graduation from Wake Forest, Meredith pursued her passion for advocacy and was accepted to Campbell University School of Law. While attending Campbell Law, Meredith was a member of the Restorative Justice Clinic, where she thrived in bringing victims and offenders together to foster collaborative healing, rather than specifically seeking punishment. Meredith is a member of the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association, and the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association.

Meredith’s experiences with the Restorative Justice Clinic, as well as her experience in criminal law, is what drew her to practice family law. Meredith enjoys building a relationship with her clients and learning about their lives and goals beyond what is seen on the typical intake sheet. Meredith understands that effective communication is what moves a case forward and ultimately a client to a greater peace of mind. While Meredith thrives in the courtroom, she exhausts all efforts necessary to advance her client’s goals at the lowest cost to them outside the court. From the beginning of the case, Meredith won’t minimize any anticipated issues, but will work to overcome them until the very end.

Outside her time at the office, you will likely find Meredith spending quality time hiking, watching movies with her loved ones, visiting Raleigh-Durham’s restaurants and breweries, or fawning over her two handsome feline boys, George and Phillip.
