Sodoma Law is proud to announce the completion of an extraordinary year, including staff growth, the addition of a new practice area and the receipt of multiple honors. The most recent recognition: the inclusion of founder and attorney Nicole Sodoma as a member of Business North Carolina’s “2014 Legal Elite”. This comes on the heels of Sodoma Law’s inclusion in the Charlotte Business Journal’s “2013 Best Places to Work” for the second year running.
“I’m honored to be named to the Legal Elite, particularly as the list is chosen by my fellow members of the North Carolina State Bar,” said Nicole Sodoma. “My colleagues and I are committed to providing our clients with compassionate, effective service, and to building a supportive workplace that encourages growth.”
As part of Sodoma Law’s expansion, the firm added an Appellate Practice headed by attorney Edward Garrett, whose previous background includes clerking for The Honorable Robert C. Hunter and to The Honorable Robert N. Hunter, Jr., both of the North Carolina Court of Appeals. In addition, attorneys Robin Goulet and Jennifer Paternostro were added to the Family Law practice.
Other Sodoma Law milestones for 2013 include:
The naming of Nicole Sodoma to the Board of Directors of Justice Initiatives, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the community about the court system.
The addition of Robin Goulet and Penelope Hefner to the certified Parenting Coordinators on staff, bringing the firm’s total number of PC’s to four, out of the 30 serving Mecklenburg and surrounding counties. Parenting Coordinators are extensively trained to help families who have on-going custody disputes in high-conflict divorce cases.
The Walter Brem House, home to Sodoma Law and an integral part of the firm’s family-focused atmosphere, celebrated its 110th anniversary and was honored with a Mayoral Proclamation of November 7 as “Walter Brem Anniversary Day.”
