Ms. Janet Haney Amburgey: Attorney with Gum, Hillier & McCroskey, P.A.
Attorney Awards


I am a 2008 graduate of the Appalachian School of Law. I focus my practice on family law matters including divorce and separation, child custody and support, property settlement and alimony, adoptions, name changes, domestic violence protective orders and parent counsel in DSS matters. I believe problem-solving a primary responsibility of a lawyer. Assisting people through family chaos, ensuring the protection of their rights and property, helping to blend and expand families, and facilitating the transition to newly designed futures, is the heart of family law practice.

In October 2016, I became a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

In 2015, I received my first peer review honorarium through Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Young Guns Family Law Section. In 2017, I was honored to be included in the Legal Elite Family Law list.
