Attorney Awards


I limit my practice to issues involving marital relations and family law. I have been asked by many people why I practice in the area of family law and have often questioned this myself. The answer lies in the fact that when people come to me for assistance, they are often at a difficult crossroads in life, with choices to make that can dramatically alter their future. It is a time that I, as an attorney, can have a significant and positive impact on the life of that person and assist that client in moving forward toward a better future.

I am a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law by the North Carolina Board of Legal Specialization, having been certified in November 2003. I am also a qualified Mediator and assist other attorneys and their clients in coming to amicable resolutions of their issues without the necessity of court intervention.

In 2009, I was inducted to fellowship in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. AAML Fellows across the United States are generally recognized by judges and attorneys as preeminent family law practitioners with a high level of knowledge, skill and integrity. There are less than 1,700 lawyers in the United States that have been granted this prestigious fellowship.

Member, Holderness Moot Court, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Member, Pro Se Litigation Committee and Executive Committee, 28th Judicial District, 2003-2005. In 2009, I was first voted by peer review to the North Carolina Rising Stars, Super Lawyer's™ special category for young lawyers, and was voted to that list again in 2010. In 2012, I was nominated to Super Lawyers™ main list. Super Lawyers™ publicizes the top 5% of best lawyers in every state based on peer review. I'm also honored by the peer-review list Best Lawyers in America and have been on that list for several years. In early 2010, I received Martindale-Hubbell's AV® Preeminent ™ rating, an honor granted through peer review of other AV® Preeminent ™ rated lawyers in North Carolina. In 2011, I was first listed in Business North Carolina Legal Elite. Our firm has been named Best Firm by US News/Best Lawyers in America since 2010.
