Last year, the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) published a complete history of the NCBA’s Family Law Section from 1980 to 2013. This publication was a joint effort between Tharrington Smith attorney Lynn P. Burleson, and our own team member, Amy L. Britt. Ms. Britt, a partner with CPSB, provided the history for the decade spanning from 2003 to 2013, while Mr. Burleson worked on the earlier years.
The History of the Family Law Section of the NCBA provides a look into the Section’s influence on the development of North Carolina’s family law legislation over time. The history describes the Section’s position on specific legislation, and how the efforts of Section members have impacted the state’s current family law statutes. The History also provides a membership report, a list of continuing legal education seminars sponsored by the Section, and a list of officers and council members.
Family Law Section
The NCBA Family Law Section is a professional membership association for family lawyers who work in North Carolina. The Section’s efforts lie in promoting improvements to existing state laws and programs for family law through pro bono legal services, legal education, practice guides, mentoring programs, and legislative changes. The Family Law Section provides continuing education programs for lawyers, with seminars on child custody, child support, alimony and equitable distribution. The Section also publishes the NCBA “Family Forum” newsletter for its members and helps mold the legislative agenda for presentation to the General Assembly.
Ms. Britt was admitted to the North Carolina Bar in August 2005, and since then, she has dedicated herself exclusively to the practice of family law in Wake County and Raleigh. She has successfully worked with clients who are going through the process of divorce and separation, and she has considerable experience in handling child custody, support, alimony, and equitable distribution cases. Ms. Britt also handles domestic violence cases, and prepares premarital agreements, property settlement agreements, and domestic relations orders for parties.
Ms. Britt is licensed to practice law in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina, and she has lived and worked in Raleigh since 2005, giving her unique insight into the local court systems.
The attorneys at Cheshire, Parker, Schneider & Bryan are proud of Ms. Britt’s efforts and dedication to this project and the important work she did in providing the state with an updated History of the Family Law Section of the NCBA. Like Ms. Britt, all of our team members strive to involve themselves in efforts that will help the legal community and the local community. CPSB is a leading law firm in Raleigh, NC, and our Raleigh family lawyers are dedicated to providing high-quality legal services to clients.
