I am a North Carolina native who was born in Marion, but grew up in Rutherfordton. While I was truly blessed to be raised in a loving, caring, and stable home, I realized at a young age that not everyone had that opportunity and always had a heart to help my friends who were hurting. Upon graduating high school, I began working with my father who has a real estate office in Bat Cave, North Carolina, while at the same time, attending Gardner-Webb University.
I was seeking what direction to go with my career. At the time, the most reasonable thing appeared to be to join my father in his real estate practice. But putting aside the financial aspect and given my passion to help people, I wanted to do something that would allow me to take that passion to a whole other level. That’s when I found the practice of law.
Upon graduating from GWU with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, I was accepted to Elon Law School and was a recipient of a Presidential Scholarship. After completing my first year of law school at Elon, I transferred to Charlotte School of Law to be closer to home and my wife.
As an attorney, I genuinely care about each individual client. My first and foremost goal is to help every client achieve the best possible outcome in their case and I strive to make a difference in their lives. I practice in the areas of personal injury, criminal defense, family law, civil litigation, and estate planning.
While attending law school, I acquired significant legal experience in multiple practice areas by interning with both the law firm of Tomblin, Farmer and Morris, PLLC and the legal department of Family Dollar. In addition, I defended clients in criminal cases through Charlotte School of Law’s Criminal Justice Clinic and provided legal services to individuals who were starting businesses through the school’s Entrepreneurship Clinic.
When I’m not practicing law, I love being involved in the community, participating in the local prison ministry and community service opportunities. I am very grateful to have a wonderful wife, Daniella, and we were blessed with our first child, Coleman Blake Caulder, in January 2015.
