Forrest Family Law’s office is in New Bern, North Carolina, and Katherine and her staff live in town as well. Katherine’s daughter goes to school in Craven County. Katherine and her staff work in the Carteret and Craven County Courthouses every week. She knows the judges and her opposing attorneys well. These may seem to be trivial points, but LOCAL KNOWLEDGE is critical in wining your case. Here’s why:
Carteret and Craven County Courts do not have “Family Court Jurisdiction.” In Family Court Jurisdiction, a specific judge would be assigned to a Family Law case. In Carteret and Craven, they are not. Katherine and her team have worked with the judges for years. This is a key component of a winning strategy.
Think about it this way, a winning sports team knows their opponent in and out. They’ve watched video after video of them playing. They send scouts out for reports on their competition. They’ve seen them play on game day. It’s the same for your attorney. Their knowledge about their fellow local attorneys and judges is crucial to your case being won.
