Kate Rech

Partner/Attorney

I am a native Charlottean, having graduated from Myers Park High School. I did my undergraduate studies at UNC-Charlotte, graduating with a B.S. in Business Administration, major in Marketing, as well as a B.A. in Spanish. While there, I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain through a program with UNC-Chapel Hill. I graduated from the Charlotte School of Law as class valedictorian in the first graduating class. While there, I studied abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland through a program with William Mitchell College of Law.

After graduating from law school, I began practicing misdemeanor criminal defense matters and plaintiff’s side civil litigation before opening my own practice, focusing primarily on family law.
Since opening our doors in 2010, we have helped hundreds of clients through the tough times that often come along with family law issues. We believe in fighting hard for our clients and being there for them when they need us most.

Practice Philosophy

I chose the field of domestic law because I felt that I could make a direct and positive impact on people’s lives. I believe that helping provide a service to the community is not only a benefit to the public, but it is satisfying and rewarding for the practice and for me. I believe in giving my clients realistic expectations, instead of telling them what they want to hear. I believe such a philosophy makes for more collaboration between the lawyer and the client. I can never guarantee clients a particular result, but I can promise professionalism on my part, and that they will be properly prepared when the time comes.
