The collaborative divorce movement continues to spread across North Carolina and AN|R Law is proud to be part of these efforts. In August 2021, Ashley-Nicole Russell, Esq. opened a fourth office location in Wilmington to serve the southeastern portion of North Carolina.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our legal team and offers us the ability to work with more individuals who need out-of-court legal options through alternative dispute resolutions. AN|R Law focuses on using collaborative divorce, mediation, and settlement methods to reach a negotiated resolution to legal matters. Led by experienced and award-winning attorney Ashley-Nicole Russell, AN|R Law is committed to being an advocate and resource for its clients. As a child of divorce, divorcee, and divorce attorney she knows how important it is to understand legal options. During her parents’ divorce, Ashley-Nicole experienced hardship and long-term effects that were caused by the traditional litigation divorce model. As a result, she was inspired to pursue a career in family law to change the way divorce is handled in North Carolina and across the United States. She founded AN|R Law: A Negotiated Resolution in 2011 which was the region’s first collaborative divorce practice. Since then, she’s opened three additional locations and co-founded two other North Carolina law firms, McLawhorn & Russell, PLLC and Michael & Russell, PLLC.

Ashley-Nicole is committed to spreading awareness of alternative dispute resolution methods that reduce conflict while achieving a desirable outcome during divorce. As explained below, each AN|R Law office provides a unique approach to family law and collaborative divorce based on its strategically placed location.

Greenville, North Carolina Office:

The Greenville, North Carolina location was the first location and flagship office for AN|R Law. Nearly a decade ago, Ashley-Nicole Russell initiated the practice of collaborative law in Pitt County and much of eastern North Carolina through this office. Over the years, Ashley-Nicole has won several awards and recognitions due to her work in collaborative law in Greenville. She was named the Greenville – Pitt County Small Business Leader of the Year in 2017 by the Greenville – Pitt County Chamber of Commerce. This office is located in the heart of Uptown Greenville at 112 South Pitt Street. In addition to serving Pitt County, this location allows our team to assist individuals in nearby communities such as Beaufort, Martin, Edgecombe, Lenoir, Greene, and Wilson counties.

Beaufort, North Carolina Office:

Located in the beautiful coastal town of Beaufort, this office location is the new headquarters for AN|R Law. This office is conveniently located in the county seat of Carteret County, along North Carolina’s famed Crystal Coast region. At 1113 Lennoxville Road, this office provides access for clients in various counties across the coastal portion of the eastern part of the state including Carteret, Jones, Pamlico, and Craven counties. In addition to area residents, some clients choose to travel to this office from other areas due to its enhanced anonymity in a by-appointment-only setting which creates an opportunity for additional privacy. Ashley-Nicole is widely involved in the local community and also serves as the vice president for the Carteret County Bar Association.

Raleigh, North Carolina Office:

AN|R Law is proud to have a location in the North Carolina state capitol of Raleigh. It’s essential for our practice to have a location in Raleigh due to Ashley-Nicole Russell’s involvement in the efforts to pass shared parenting legislation in North Carolina. As a national board member for the National Parents Organization, Ashley-Nicole advocates for equal shared parenting laws nationwide and in her home state. Our Raleigh office location allows her to have a space near the General Assembly for frequent visits to meet with state lawmakers.

The office is located at 8801 Fast Park Drive in the Access Office Business Center of Raleigh. This convenient location is at the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and Westgate Road with easy access from Research Triangle Park, I-540, I-40, Highway 70, and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. In addition, AN|R Law and Ashley-Nicole serve as advisors in family law matters for McLawhorn & Russell, PLLC, which is headquartered in this office complex.

Wilmington, North Carolina Office:

Located at 5008 Oleander Drive in Wilmington, this is the newest office for AN|R Law. This space is well-positioned to serve the entire southeastern region of North Carolina. This includes Onslow, Duplin, Pender, New Hanover, Brunswick, Bladen, and Columbus counties.
