I experienced my parent’s awful divorce when I was a child, and I saw how it negatively affected both of my parents and all of us children. Because of that experience I wanted to practice family law. The first five years of my practice was almost solely divorce and custody litigation. Again, I saw the legal battle and inner battles that my clients and their families were going through. Since moving to Charlotte and opening my practice here, I have gone through several pieces of training that have shown me a different way to approach family law cases for my clients. It is my hope that processes like Collaborative Law and Mediation can help family’s transition from the title of Husband and Wife while remaining Mom and Dad forever.
When clients hire Easterling Law, their consultation is with Lindsey Easterling, and she does all of the work as well. Clients don’t have to navigate through young associates over and over to try to get to the attorney that they hired. They are hiring Lindsey and I they consult with her through every step of the process.
I was driven to practice family law so I could help individuals and families on a personal level. I am naturally inclined to find solutions to problems and eliminate conflict and I do that for my clients by developing relationships – with my clients, other attorneys, and professionals. My goal is to work with the people involved in a divorce to come up with a solution to specific problems and concerns and to do so in the most amicable and efficient way. Families that come together to resolve their conflict respectfully and with integrity, whether it is conflict over children, financial issues, or a combination, are very often more satisfied with the outcome than if a judge made the decision for them. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always come together and litigation is necessary. In those cases, I call on my experience with high-conflict divorce litigation involving complex financial issues and dissipation of assets, as well as contested custody and visitation matters to achieve the best outcome possible for my client.
Prior to joining Easterling Law, I was practicing family law in Massachusetts for just under seven years, and through law school, I interned with the Children’s Law Center of Connecticut and Massachusetts where I specialized in child welfare and Special Education matters on behalf of children and families. I also participated in the Asylum and Human Rights clinic where I successfully fought to gain asylum for a Pakistani woman who had been persecuted because of her religion in Pakistan. Prior to law school, I was a legal assistant at the global law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, & Flom LLP, where I assisted in complex litigation matters dealing with insider trading, back-dating stock options, and multi-million dollar corporations.
