Family Law Attorney – Amanda M. Cubit
When you ask anyone what the most important thing is in their life, the most popular answer is, “family.” My answer to this question is no different. We all define our “family” in a unique way, and like anything else, a family experiences change throughout the course of a person’s life.
If you’re looking for a Family Law attorney, it’s because your family is about to experience a change. This may be for good or bad, for better or worse, but change means life, as you once knew it, is going to be different. More likely than not, this change may be overwhelming and it will bring some level of stress and anxiety with it.
The role of a Family Law attorney is to help you navigate through this time–from a legal standpoint as well as a personal standpoint. I watched as my aunt and uncle went through the emotional ups and downs of adopting a daughter from another country. I experienced the eventual, long anticipated happiness that came with the finalization of their adoption. I’ve watched as loved ones experienced the many emotions that come with the end of a marriage. These experiences drew me to Family Law.
Helping people, truly listening to a person’s problems, and finding a solution is my passion. I love listening to people’s stories. I love hearing a person’s history, hearing about their family, hearing where they began and where they are now. This passion for helping people is what I bring to each and every client’s case.
Before joining Sodoma Law, I practiced with Legal Aid of North Carolina. I immediately began representing clients in the courtroom and in negotiations with the opposing side. Each of my clients faced stressful and sometimes overwhelming change. Among other things, I represented clients in obtaining domestic violence protective orders against abusive family members and I represented clients in securing custody of their children against a partner who was unfit to care for their children.
I understand that whether my client is experiencing what they would describe as a good or bad change, they need a compassionate, knowledgeable, strong advocate to help them navigate this time in their lives. They need an advocate who will listen to their story and help them achieve their goals, whatever those goals may be. I will listen to your story, I will take time to understand your goals, and I will cater my approach to your case depending on what you need from me during your time of need.
I’ve always had a desire to help people, and at Sodoma Law, I have the opportunity to help my clients overcome change in their family, define their “new normal,” and come out even better on the other side.
