Litigation Attorney

Charlotte divorce attorney Monica J. Schuring

From the time she was 10 years old, Charlotte divorce attorney Monica J. Schuring wanted to be a divorce lawyer with the primary goal of preventing other children from being victims of litigation.

“Family law is messy, and there is no way around it, but I wanted to practice in a field where I could work closely with clients and feel like I was having a positive impact when they are going through the unimaginable.”

Ms. Schuring prides herself on staying level-headed and calm in her practice, whether it is in the courtroom or handling a crisis. That composure enables her to better serve her client who is likely in crisis mode and may be navigating the family court system for the first time.

Ms. Schuring’s steady demeanor gives her clients a source of stability in an otherwise unsteady time.

“I think it is important for my clients to know that although it may not seem like it, everything is going to be OK, and I will work zealously to achieve the best possible result in their case,” she said.

“I was really impressed with how Monica sets up the situation so she is going to be the one to get yelled at and not me. She’s great at protecting me and taking the heat with my wife. She is always polite in her emails to opposing counsel but also firm with them. I’ve already referred the Firm!”


​”I honestly can’t come up with anything bad to say! Monica was very professional and kind. She was there to reel me back in when I needed it which I really appreciate. She did a fantastic job overall.”
