Courtney Carter is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but has resided in the Charlotte area since 2011. Prior to relocating to Charlotte, Courtney pursued her undergraduate degree at Kent State University. She graduated with her Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Management with a focus of Pre-Law in three years. During her time at Kent State University, Courtney had the opportunity to perform an internship with one of Pennsylvania’s State Senators. During Courtney’s time with the Senator’s office, she was able to assist constituents with government assistance programs, as well as organize events for children, veterans and senior citizens.

While in law school, Courtney was the campaign manager for a local candidate running for Charlotte City Council, District 6. After graduating from law school and earning her J.D., Courtney began practicing in the area of Family Law, focusing on divorce, child custody, child support, alimony and equitable distribution. As a child of divorce, Courtney is familiar with the various difficulties families face when contemplating and/or going through a divorce.
