Attorney at Law
I am an attorney licensed to practice in North Carolina with a passion for Family Law and Domestic Violence work. I meticulously strive to ensure that every client not only receives superior
I am originally from the beaches of Lewes, Delaware. After graduating high school, I attended the University of Delaware, where I double-majored in Criminal Justice and Sociology, and minored in Women’s Studies. While at UD, I was an active member of Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity committed to volunteering throughout the community. During my senior year, I completed an externship with the Family Court in Wilmington, Delaware, which only fueled my growing interest in Family Law.
In 2012, I moved to Charlotte to pursue my legal education with an academic scholarship. During my studies, I interned in various settings that provided me with hands-on experience in Family Law. My first internship was with Legal Aid of North Carolina’s Domestic Violence Program during my 2L year, where I learned the process and procedures of assisting victims of domestic violence
Today I practice family law exclusively in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. I also volunteer my time as a member of the Fighting For Women With Fashion committee which hosts an annual fashion show to benefit Safe
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring local Charlotte restaurants with friends, reading, and going for walks with my dogs, Bella and Mabel.
My primary goal is to help my clients navigate through this difficult time
My interest and commitment to the practice of family law stems from my own personal experience. I understand that the end of a marriage is not only devastating and stressful but also has ripple effects throughout other areas of life. My primary goal is to help my clients navigate through this difficult time in their lives with patience, understanding, and compassion.

She was compassionate, having my best interest in mind.
Christine Houston helped me through my divorce. I would highly recommend her. She was compassionate, having my best interest in mind. She was so organized and was readily available to get this case settled compared to my ex’s attorney. I don’t know what I would have done without her on this case.
