I strive to make a positive impact on our clients that extends beyond their time with New Direction Family Law. I accomplish this by being empathetic, providing guidance, and being part of a strong supportive legal team.
Paulina Hendrick


After spending the majority of her life in Queens, New York (with pit stops from Virgina to Alabama), Paulina Hendrick made the big move to North Carolina to be closer to her family in 2018. Inspired by a childhood dream of helping people, Paulina decided to pursue a career in the legal field. She began her legal profession journey as a receptionist at a general practice law firm in Alabama. After moving to North Carolina, Paulina worked as legal assistant in a personal injury firm in Raleigh. After almost four years assisting with personal injury cases, an opportunity to switch to family law came her way, and Paulina never looked back. In 2023, Paulina earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from North Carolina Central University.

With the combination of personal and professional experience with family law matters, Paulina excels in providing empathy and guidance for clients as well as making clients’ satisfaction her biggest priority. She strives to have a long lasting, positive impact on clients and their families, and feels this is best accomplished by being a zealous advocate and part of a strong supportive legal team. 

During her free time, Paulina enjoys weekend brunches with her family, yoga, and spending time with her two kids, Charlotte and Connor.
