Catherine Smith

Catherine is originally from the metro Atlanta area but moved to North Carolina in 2007 to attend University of North Carolina at Asheville for her undergraduate degree in History and Sociology. After graduating from UNC Asheville, she returned to her home state to attend law school at the University of Georgia School of Law (Go Dawgs!).

During law school clinics and summer internships, Catherine represented clients in obtaining Domestic Violence Protective Orders and temporary child custody. She graduated from UGA Law cum laude in 2014 and moved to Charlotte. She loved North Carolina so much while getting her undergraduate degree, she knew she had to come back.

For four years, Catherine worked at a non-profit organization representing children in high-conflict child custody cases mainly litigating cases. Representing children in a custody dispute provides Catherine a unique perspective in child custody matters that will benefit clients.

Catherine is married with a young daughter. She enjoys mountain biking, stand-up paddleboarding, and reading.
