Sheryl T. Friedrichs
Attorney and Counselor at Law
Sheryl Friedrichs earned her undergraduate degree from Belmont Abby College and her Juris Doctorate degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law. Admitted to practice in State and Federal Courts in North Carolina, she currently limits her practice to matters of family law. She is a Board Certified Family Law Specialist and represents clients in both Wake County and Franklin County. She is a Certified Superior Court Mediator and a trained Collaborative Law attorney.
Although she routinely represents clients in court, she encourages all clients to seek out-of-court solutions and litigate only as a last resort.
Various forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution provide private forums that are considerably quicker and generally less expensive then litigation. Collaborative Law, Mediation and Arbitration provide out-of-court resolutions for family conflict of all types -- child custody, child support, property division and spousal support.
Alternative Dispute Resolution is especially attractive for non-traditional families. When unmarried couples separate, property division and spousal support laws do not apply, and those couples do not have access to the courts in the way a married couple would have.
