litigation paralegal, certified by the North Carolina State Bar, preparing cases for trial and

assisting attorneys in the courtroom.


For many years Mrs. Calhoun worked with personal injury and domestic clients exclusively. The

work was difficult but very rewarding, and she found her passion in helping others through

some of the most trying times of their lives. During her nearly twenty-five years of working as a

paralegal, she gained experience in business, contracts, criminal defense, wills, estates, divorce,

custody, and other family law areas. She was th e senior litigation paralegal for a law firm in

Charlotte when she decided the time had come for her to pursue the next step in her career and

attend law school.


She earned her Juris Doctor degree from Charlotte School of Law, graduating with honors.

During her years there she worked as a Senior Editor for the Charlotte Law Review, in which one

of her articles is published. She was Torts Teaching Assistant, instructing students about civil

claims such as personal injury, contractual claims, and other civil injuries. She volunteered at

the Mississippi Center for Justice, working to help victims of Hurricane Katrina and the

housing crisis that resulted from it. She also volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, the

Innocence Project, and Charlotte School of Law's Mentor Program. She is affiliated with

many associations, and received a number of honors and awards which are listed below.

She most recently received the Top 100 Notable Award and the Top 25 Female Attorneys

Mrs. Calhoun enjoys assisting those in the community and others who have a need for legal
