I am from New York City. After some time in the United States Army, my family and I relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina. We've been here since 2008 and so far it has been great. Prior to relocating, I earned my certification in Tennessee and worked for a Criminal Law Firm in Clarksville, Tennessee. I also worked for a Criminal Law Office in Raleigh, North Carolina. I joined Ludwig and Willis, now the Law Office of Carlton Willis, in 2013 and provide administrative assistance, office management and bookkeeping services. As the first point of contact, I also provide a listening ear and a shoulder for our clients to lean on. I enjoy interacting with our clients and getting to know them as they journey through this difficult time in their lives.
