A Different Kind of Attorney
As a native of North Carolina, I have a “hunger for justice” and strive to provide my clients with compassionate and practical legal solutions. After graduating from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, I eventually returned to North Carolina to launch my own practice in 1994.
Since launching my practice in 1994, I’ve worked hard to guide and support my clients through their family law and estate planning matters. While I practice traditional courtroom law, I find that many clients benefit from meditation and collaborative law.
”My goal is to determine the best approach to securing your desired outcome in a time- and cost-efficient manner. I believe that working towards an equitable, intelligent, and open-minded application of the law moves us toward a more just and humane society.Judy Whisnant
