Andrea Abernathy is a Legal Secretary. She works primarily in our Gastonia, NC office.
Originally from Buffalo, New York, my family relocated to Gastonia when I was 12. After high school, I attended UNC Greensboro and completed my degree at CPCC in Charlotte. I was a young single mother working hard to provide for myself and my son. I met my ex-husband when I was 22. We married 3 years later. Together we had 3 more wonderful children. While my children were young, I had the privilege of being a stay at home mom before diving back into the legal field. I have been re-married for 3 years to my best friend and gained an amazing stepdaughter in the process. Family is everything to me and I enjoy every moment I spend with them.
That’s why in my free time I enjoy spending time outside with my husband and our children (including our 2 fur-babies), learning new things, and binge-watching Netflix!
With more than 8 years of experience in Family Law, I know both personally and professionally how difficult it can be to go through a divorce, custody battle, or fight for child support. Being on both sides has enabled me to be more compassionate and encouraging to others so they can remain positive through their own experiences. My purpose is to work hard on your case, so you can have even a little peace of mind. I love seeing people happy and will do my best to get you there!
We all have a story; some chapters are more difficult than others; let us help you get through this one.
