North Carolina Board Certified Family Law Specialist
Jeffrey E. Marshall
Jeff is a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Family Law. His law practice is focused entirely on Family Law and Divorce matters. He has been a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law since 2009 and at the time of his certification, he was one of only 204 lawyers state-wide to achieve this distinction. The North Carolina State Bar certifies lawyers as specialists in designated practice areas as a service to the public to identify lawyers who have demonstrated special knowledge, skill and proficiency in certain areas of law. To be certified as a specialist in a practice area, a lawyer must have extensive experience in their area of practice, be favorably evaluated by other lawyers and judges, and pass a written examination in the specialty practice area.
Jeff is also certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Committee as a Family Financial Mediator and has successfully resolved many family law cases for attorneys and their clients who are going through the difficult process of separation and divorce. Additionally, Jeff is often chosen by his peers as an arbitrator to make legally binding decisions in highly contested family law matters. He is humbled by the number of colleagues who contact him for advice and representation in their own family law cases.
Jeff is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the Tenth Judicial District Bar and the Wake County Bar Association. He is a member of the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association, and a member of the Continuing Legal Education Committee. He has both spoken and planned Continuing Legal Education Courses.
Jeff currently serves on the Advisory Board and is the past President on the Board of Directors for The Child’s Advocate, a once local, non-profit organization and now a part of Legal Aid. This program is designed to ensure that courts hear and understand a minor child’s opinions in highly contested custody cases.
Jeff was born and raised in Rochester, New York. After graduating from Fairport High School, Jeff attended SUNY Buffalo, where he was recruited to play football by former Buffalo Bills great and former NFL coach, Jim Haslett. At SUNY Buffalo Jeff received his BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. He then attended Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio where he graduated with Order of the Curia honors. Immediately following graduation, Jeff moved to North Carolina where he has practiced law ever since. When he is not at work, Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife Becky and their two daughters, Harper and Josephine.
