Kay Bolaños

Job Title

Kay Bolanos, Charlotte Family Law AttorneyKay Bolaños is a family law attorney in our Charlotte and Gastonia offices. She represents clients in all areas of family law including child custody, child support, alimony, domestic violence, equitable distribution, divorce, mediation, and separation agreements.

Hear from Kay in her own words about why she became a family law attorney:

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Metropolitan State University. During undergrad, I worked at a large non-profit firm as a paralegal. I had the pleasure of working with indigent clients in complex domestic violence, divorce, and custody matters. I answered phones, conducted client intakes, and drafted documents, but I knew I wanted to have a bigger impact on the lives of our clients. Inspired by the great attorneys at the non-profit, I attended law school at the St. Thomas School of Law. While in law school, I returned to the same non-profit organization and represented clients as a Certified Student Attorney. It was a full-circle moment for me.

Since graduating from law school, I have practiced exclusively in the area of family law. I enjoy helping my clients navigate the difficult nuances of the law, so they can feel empowered to make informed decisions about their future.  It’s my job to listen to you, understand your legal issues, and provide the necessary legal strategy to properly advocate for you and your family.

My family and I moved to North Carolina to escape the long, cold winters of Minnesota. In my free time, you can find me thrifting, road-tripping with my husband and children, hiking, renovating our old colonial home, or chauffeuring our children to football and soccer games.
