Family Law Attorney in North Carolina & South Carolina

About Carini Family Law

There is not a one size fits all approach to family law. The various avenues a lawyer can explore depend on if their client’s goals are family-driven, financially-driven, or a mix of both.

Since most people do not know the ins and outs of the law, it can be challenging to be confident your lawyer’s strategy is the best course of action. You can end up feeling like a bystander in your own case, adding extra stress to an already difficult process.

Our Charlotte family law firm uses an advisory approach, which gives clients a working knowledge of their legal options so they can make more empowering decisions.

Alexandria is everything you need in a lawyer: she’s a rational thinker, an avid listener, and a reliable communicator.

About Alexandria Carini

After growing up in the Lake Norman area, Alexandria attended North Carolina State University, where she was a college cheerleader (Go Pack!), and graduated in 2013.  After graduating from NC State University, Alexandria received her Juris Doctorate Degree, graduating Cum Laude, and immediately went on to pass the North Carolina and South Carolina state bar exams. While in law school, she was admitted as a member of the Order of the Crown for academic excellence and leadership in legal studies, and received an award for Pro Bono Honors.

Alexandria’s drive to help others reaches beyond her academic achievements. In 2019, she received the Safe Alliance Commitment to Justice Award for her work that furthered the struggle against domestic violence and sexual assault in the Charlotte community.

Alexandria is passionate about helping people in all areas of life and is a devoted advocate for anyone who needs one. Alexandria has always had a strong desire to help those who are going through changes in their family dynamics, which is what she believes led her to the practice of family law.  As a supportive friend, she is the type of person you can trust. No matter what you need, she will show up prepared to overcome any challenge by your side. One of the things Alexandria enjoys most about family law is finding creative ways to apply the law.  Her ability to creatively solve problems coupled with her strong empathy for others is what she believes is the driving force behind the solutions she seeks for her clients.

Outside of her professional work, Alexandria enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and two dogs in their Charlotte home. She finds peace out on the lake, and you can often find her reading, cooking, or working in their garden.
