I started in private practice in August, 1976 in Waynesville, North Carolina. In January, 1977, I accepted a position as Assistant County Attorney for Buncombe County, North Carolina, a position I held until August, 1979, when I returned to private practice. Beginning in 1979, my practice was significantly concentrated in the area of family law. In 1993, I was board certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a Family Law Specialist. When I became board certified, I limited my practice almost exclusively to family law. I have been recertified as a Family Law Specialist in 1998, 2003 and 2008. On July 1, 2003, I was certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission (DRC) to conduct mediations of equitable distribution and other family law cases in North Carolina District Court actions. On July 1, 2005, I was certified by the North Carolina DRC to conduct mediations in North Carolina Superior Court cases. In 2009, I was admitted to the North Carolina Academy of Superior Court Mediators, an association whose membership consists of approximately 80 of the state's best established mediators. Admittance is by invitation only and limited to neutrals who have proven experience in the resolution of commercial and civil disputes. All admitted members have been recognized for their accomplishments through a peer-nomination and client review process.

The North Carolina Academy is the local chapter of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals (NADN) and I am admitted to that association as well, being one of approximately 800 neutrals throughout the United States in that association.
