Meet Attorney Fox
A native of Philadelphia, PA, Ms. Fox attended Catholic and private schools, before graduating with a B.A. from Temple University’s Department of Media Studies & Production. What followed was a successful career in the entertainment industry while living in Los Angeles, CA, for close to 20 years. During that time, Ms. Fox used her natural gift of persuasion to negotiate multi-million dollar contracts for some of the music industry’s most notable recording artists.
After starting a family and experiencing the legal system first hand, Ms. Fox realized there was as much a need for her to pursue the practice of law, as there was a need for people like her to practice. As the single mother of two boys, Ms. Fox defied the odds, and not only worked while attending law school part-time, but completed the rigorous program in just two years, graduating cum laude with distinctive honors in pro bono service, and consistently achieving “Best Advocate” during regional competitions on the Trial Team Advocacy Honor Board.
Ms. Fox believes her compassion as a parent, and frustration as a plaintiff, has allowed her to draw upon personal life experiences to form a strong conviction that aids in her ability to vigorously fight for the rights of her clients, their families, and hardworking people who do not deserve to be taken advantage of as consumers.

Family law is one of the most personal areas of the legal system. It has the unique responsibility of attempting to regulate matters of the heart, at a time when many are broken-hearted and afraid of what they have to lose. As a mother and divorcee, Attorney Fox is able to use her own experiences as well as legal knowledge, to assure clients the journey which lies ahead, while frustrating and disappointing, can also be productive and successful. A consultation is the first step to establishing a new normal for your family, which is in the best interest of your children, and ultimately your family.
When a child is born out of wedlock, a Father must petition the court for rights to all of the parental privileges automatically provided to the child's mother. Legitimation entitles a child born out of wedlock to inherit from his biological father as if he were born into lawful wedlock, and allows the biological father to be added to the child's birth certificate, and have the child's surname reflect that of the father. As a Special Proceeding, Legitimations can be daunting without legal guidance. A consultation is the best way to determine if you and your child are eligible for Legitimation.
There are few people who have never made a mistake, but poor decisions can have a long lasting effect on your life when it results in an arrest or criminal record. The State of North Carolina allows a person to expunge eligible charges from a criminal record, giving a person a clear record as if the charge never happened or existed. So often a criminal record can cause unexpected complications which prevent a person from attending school, getting a job they rightfully deserve, getting certain licenses, securing housing, and even volunteering at their child’s school. As a service to the community, Attorney Fox offers an analytical review of your criminal record for potential expunction options for only $100.00! If eligible, your expunction will cost an additional $175.00. a mere fraction of what other offices generally charge! Click Here for more information.
