“Melissa has kept me informed of everything that was going on in my case right from the beginning. I can honestly say that she has truly advocated for me (not the case), and has done her best to minimize my costs. She is very knowledgeable of divorce and family law in NC.”Pete
Driven. Compassionate. A family man. Triple Tarheel (we had to throw that in). Alex French joined the firm in early 2018 as an associate in the firm’s family law and probate practices. As a father, former educator, and child of divorced parents, you can trust Alex to understand your perspective and be a zealous advocate for you.
“I understand how complex life transitions can be. From my perspective of divorce as a child, to seeing the impact of unhappy or unstable family situations as an educator, I feel it is my role to support my clients’ interests and values. I hope I can help make things easier on other families.”
