Kasey Corn is a family law attorney in our Raleigh office. She represents clients in all areas of family law including child custody, child support, alimony, domestic violence, equitable distribution, divorce, mediation, separation agreements, and adoptions.
Hear from Kasey in her own words about why she became a family law attorney:
When I was a child, I saw first-hand the impact that divorce and child custody can have on a family. My parent's divorce was a high conflict one with many legal issues, and our lives flipped upside down almost overnight. My mother’s custody lawyer quickly became an inspiration to me as she advocated for my mother inside and outside the courtroom. I witnessed how impactful good lawyering can be, and I knew from that point forward I wanted to be an attorney.
I went to N.C. State for a bachelor’s in finance and a minor in Spanish. During college, I studied abroad in Valencia, Spain for a semester, completed research on diversity and inclusion in study abroad programs, and participated in the University Honors Program. Additionally, I was in a sorority and volunteered regularly at local schools assisting elementary teachers with one-on-one tutoring for kids.
I attended Michigan State University for law school, and I focused on family law and earned a Family and Child Certificate for completion of family law specialized courses. In a law clinic, I served as a child advocate appointed by a judge to investigate child custody matters, review guardianships, and assist families in the adoption process. In school, I gained legal knowledge and techniques to bring to negotiations and trials. The cold, snowy Michigan winters made me appreciate North Carolina weather, and I returned to Raleigh eagerly.
Through my experiences, I am able to bring knowledge, compassion, and determination to each aspect of your situation to provide effective and superior representation. Although this chapter of life is taxing, I will fight for you throughout your case and allow you to start the next chapter with a clean slate. My goal is to limit the financial, emotional, and physical hardships you endure in this process and to put your interests above all else.
In my free time, you can find me exploring local shops and restaurants, cheering for N.C. State, and planning my next travel adventure.
