Rebecca Wofford

As a parent of two children, a long-time Charlottean and a family lawyer, Rebecca understands relationships and knows that a good working relationship with her client is a key to success. She believes clients need to be advised of their legal rights while also having their family values acknowledged during their divorce process. She also believes “a good education eliminates fear” and is effective at advising her clients throughout the process.

Rebecca, a founding member of Wofford Law, began her law practice in 1997 after graduating from Wake Forest School of Law. She is an experienced litigator and former law professor. Rebecca is also a North Carolina-certified Parenting Coordinator.

Rebecca uses her combined experiences as a litigator, educator and parent to help clients navigate the divorce process and to advocate and negotiate on their behalves. In 2016, she switched from litigation and focused her practice on collaborative law, appellate family law practice and serving as a neutral in high conflict custody matters. As a collaborative lawyer, Rebecca assists family law clients in areas of custody, child support, alimony and equitable distribution with the goal of settling their case out of court. As a court-appointed Parenting Coordinator, Rebecca assists parents in high conflict custody cases navigate their decision-making in a child-focused manner.
