Ketan Soni has represented clients in divorce, equitable distribution, alimony, child custody, child support, domestic violence, and appeals in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina for over 13 years. Ketan practices divorce law in mediation, negotiation, collaborative law and in the courtroom to achieve the best possible result with a “big picture” view of each case. After managing one of the largest divorce law firms in North Carolina, Ketan started his own practice and then joined with Hull & Chandler, P.A., to bring the same high level of quality and care to clients. Ketan saw the damage the court process inflicted on spouses and parents, and so he opened a mediation practice designed to help spouses create their own resolution without having to go to court.
Ketan understands that clients undergoing divorce have a wide range of needs and has dedicated time to learning North Carolina divorce law, teaching continuing education to other lawyers and continuing to learn new skills in mediation, collaborative law, communication and active listening, and extensive trial advocacy. To top it off, Ketan utilizes his keen understanding of the financial issues and assets in divorce to proactively protect his clients. Ketan’s experience in 7 different counties in North Carolina allows his clients to feel secure that they are receiving solid legal advice coupled with practical experience in the courtroom.
