Irene King

Irene King is the founder and owner of King Collaborative Family Law. She is a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law and Certified Family Financial Mediator. Prior to forming King Collaborative Family Law, Irene was a partner with James, McElroy and Diehl, PA, where she practiced family law for over 10 years. She has been named a Rising Star in Family Faw by Super Lawyers and Legal Elite by Business North Carolina. In what can be described as the dramatic opera of family dissolution, Irene guides her clients through the process of thoughtfully resolving their conflicts with integrity and dignity. A collaborative divorce is a “better way” and it motivates and elevates all involved to focus on rebuilding for the future rather than simply hashing out differences in the courtroom and dismantling the past.

By way of background, Irene is originally from Indiana and graduated *summa cum laude *from Miami University of Ohio with a Bachelor of Arts in political science and a minor in vocal music performance. She earned her J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law, where she was the Symposium Editor for the North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation. While in law school, Irene also served as research assistant to Sally B. Sharp, a renowned UNC Law family law professor, and Buckner F. Melton, professor of reading, reasoning, writing and advocacy training. She also served as an assistant clerk during an externship with the Honorable Ann Marie Calabria, North Carolina Courts of Appeals, where she had the opportunity to participate in the process of law in the making.

Irene loves to sing classical music and during savasana in yoga classes, and has sung the National Anthem at the opening of sporting events in Charlotte, including the Bobcats, the Knights and the Roller Girls, and has been the featured soloist at the Mecklenburg County Law Day Luncheon and Lecture and for Naturalization Ceremonies in the Western District of NC.
