Spring 2024 Scholarship Now Open for Applications

Triangle Smart Divorce, founded in 2017, is a family law firm in Cary, North Carolina. We protect smart people from making stupid mistakes when getting married or divorced. While most of our cases involve divorce and separations, we also have clients come to us for various family law matters, including prenups, postnups, domestic partnership agreements, modifications, and more. We love family law, and the work we do makes a difference in our clients’ lives!

Everything we do is guided by our SMART Core Values. These guide our team in all decisions to best serve our clients and our community. They are not just words, they impact how we operate, behave, and communicate inside and outside the firm.

Our SMART Core Values


We create value for our clients with our services. The value of our service isn’t measured merely
in a financial sense but also in how we help them manage their time and reputation.


Being mindful of our feelings and thoughts helps us be more
aware when dealing with others and with ourselves.


We are true to who we are. We are not
afraid to express ourselves.


We take personal responsibility for our actions and the
effects of those actions and ask the same of our clients.


We speak the truth, even when it isn’t pretty. We are open
and honest in our communications.

The Triangle Smart Divorce Core Values Scholarship awards $1,000 to a Triangle area student every year to use toward their educational expenses. It is an embodiment of our commitment to our core values. We understand the power of education and the importance of supporting the next generation in their pursuit of excellence. By offering this scholarship, we hope to empower bright, forward-thinking individuals who are driven by their core values and are dedicated to making a positive impact in their communities!
