Presently she lives in Greensboro, NC, and works in High Point at Wyatt Early Harris Wheeler, LLP. She is a family law paralegal with a small law firm—24 attorneys—and works for a senior partner and an associate. Vance has been in her current position for three years.

Vance said she enjoys working with clients from the beginning of their cases until their resolution and seeing clients put their lives back together and move forward. "I assist clients in coming to terms with their situations and making positive changes and improvements to their lives," said Vance. She added that it is a challenge to work with clients in very difficult emotional circumstances.

"I spent most of my time in criminal law working with a felony child abuse prosecutor. It was very satisfying to get convictions for child abusers and either [see] them go to prison or get probation with restrictions that could prevent other children from being abused," said Vance.

"It is also very rewarding to get a favorable verdict or settlement for our family law clients. Although there is no real 'winner' in family law litigation, it is satisfying to see our clients get custody and financial arrangements settled, which benefits them and their children."

Vance said she sees the expense of legal fees, access to services, and ethics and professionalism among attorneys and staff as the most important issues facing the legal community.

Success Stories

LawCrossing is great at picking up all of the legal listings everywhere across the internet. I could have gone to three different sites to search, but you had them all on your site. That was extremely helpful. LawCrossing is a one stop shop!
