Bankruptcy Law

No two bankruptcies are the same. The solutions that fit the financial situation of one individual may be entirely wrong for someone else. When you hire a bankruptcy lawyer to handle your case, you should expect that person to take the time necessary to evaluate your situation thoroughly and to build a solution that is tailored to fit your specific needs.

Family Law And Divorce

The representation you depend on for a family law matter can have a significant impact on your life and that of your children for years or decades to come. Whether you are seeking dependable counsel to protect your interests as a marriage comes to an end or you are seeking to build your family through adoption, having a partner on your side who can provide personal attention and dependable answers can make all the difference.

Civil Litigation

When a dispute between individuals or businesses becomes intractable, often the only resolution to be found lies in the civil court system. Whether you are seeking to hold another individual or business accountable for its financial obligations, or you have been named as a defendant in a civil lawsuit, it is important to have representation on your side that can fully protect and defend your interests.


I have handled over two hundred appeals in North Carolina Appellate Courts and have had oral arguments before the North Carolina Court of Appeals and North Carolina Supreme Court. I have handled civil, domestic and criminal appeals and have served on the North Carolina State Bar's Appellate Rules Comittee. All appeals from State Courts in North Carolina are heard before the North Carolina Court of Appeals in Raleigh or the North Carolina Supreme Court in Raleigh. Therefore, my appellate practice is state-wide and I handle cases that have arisen in trial courts throughout the State of North Carolina. Whether you are seeking to have a ruling overturned or upheld, I can apply my extensive appellate experience to your case.

"I have been using this firm's services for about a year now for spousal domestic/bankruptcy issues. Mercedes is smart, knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, ethical, and has a good standing with her peers and court staff. I needed an attorney that was familiar with domestic & bankruptcy laws & she definitely fits the description. She knows my case as well as I do. Her assistant Julia is very helpful as well. I appreciate that they will work as a team with the clients and do not approach or pursue lawsuits frivolously. Absolutely a great experience!"
