I knew family law was a perfect fit for me early in law school when I interned at a small family law firm in my hometown of Jacksonville, North Carolina. It was during this internship that I first learned to work diligently toward a settlement while simultaneously preparing for trial if needed. Since then, I have dedicated myself to family and domestic violence law and exclusively practiced in these areas. Thanks to my background in service and community outreach, I find working with clients in crisis, both in the courtroom and in negotiations, extremely rewarding, and it has become my passion. I take pride in being a zealous advocate for clients who are going through trying times in their lives.
