Winston-Salem / Forsyth County Family Law Attorneys
At Crumpler Freedman Parker & Witt, our family law attorneys provide clients with sound advice, vigorous advocacy, guidance and support, allowing the clients to face the future with confidence.
With increased use of ADR measures such as mediation, arbitration, and other methods, fewer family law cases are being litigated than before; many cases are settled before anyone sees the inside of the courthouse. Our attorneys are skilled trial lawyers, however, and for those matters that cannot be resolved outside of court, we represent our clients throughout the entire process.
North Carolina Board-Certified Family Law Specialist
Attorney G. Edgar Parker was in the first group of lawyers in North Carolina to receive board certification as a Family Law Specialist, leads our domestic law practice. Mr. Parker has practiced in North Carolina for over 35 years and has spoken at seminars and CLE programs on family law, ethics, alienation of affections and criminal conversation, and related topics. In 2015, Mr. Parker was certified by the N.C. Dispute Resolution Commission to conduct Mediated Settlement Conferences in N.C. Superior Court civil actions. Alienation of Affection and Criminal Conversation cases are generally litigated in N.C. Superior Court.
Our clients benefit from that expertise and experience, as well as the unwavering commitment he and other attorneys in our family law practice have to providing high-quality legal services. We serve clients throughout North Carolina, as well as out-of-state clients with matters in North Carolina courts, from offices in Winston-Salem.

Selecting a family law attorney
If you are preparing for divorce, are involved in a custody dispute or have another family law issue, the result of your proceeding will have a long-term, significant impact on your financial and emotional well-being. You will have to discuss extremely sensitive matters with your lawyer, and the process itself, whether differences are resolved through mediation or at trial, will be emotionally exhausting.
We invite you to call us at 1.866.567.5824 or e-mail our office to arrange a meeting with one of our attorneys, a conference that typically will last for an hour or more. We charge a modest consultation fee for this consultation, during which your lawyer will evaluate your goals and resources and advise you on how to proceed. Because circumstances vary greatly, we do not quote fees over the telephone.
