I am a board certified family law specialist, having been certified by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization in 1989. I have practiced law in North Carolina for more than 35 years. My practice has been concentrated on family law for most of that time; and has been limited exclusively to family law for nearly 10 years. As a family law specialist in Onslow County, I have wide ranging experience in representing military clients and spouses while continuing to represent non-military clients as well. I have appeared extensively in the courts of Onslow County and surrounding counties. This experience gives me the opportunity to provide invaluable insight to clients involved in negotiations or in litigation regarding issues of child custody, child support, spousal support, the division of property (including military pensions) and the many other issues that can arise when spouses decide that they can no longer live together.
