Legal Assistant Caroline Stokes

Caroline Stokes joined Triangle Smart Divorce as a legal assistant straight out of Appalachian State University, where she graduated with honors. She majored in Psychology, concentrating in Social Science, and minored in Criminal Justice.

Caroline had a few decisions to make as she approached graduation. However, she did settle on one matter early – she would delay taking the LSATs and heading to law school for the foreseeable future. A decision that was grounded in her desire to work, gain real-world experience, help people in need, and put aside studying for the mind-numbing experience that are the LSATs.

Since she knew she wanted to work in law, the only question left was what type of law? Criminal law seemed obvious, considering her minor. But there was this: Caroline is “a product of a divorce, a child of divorce if you want to put it like that.” Her parents divorced, and it was hard on everyone. She got through it, and she understands at a gut level how it feels. It instilled a keen sense of empathy for anyone going through the divorce process at any level.

She gets it. She realized fairly quickly that her experiences and empathy allow her to understand family law clients in ways that are just plain impossible in criminal law. The choice was obvious; Triangle Smart Divorce is thrilled she made it and found us.

Caroline is a native of the Raleigh area, though since attending college in Boone, she has become enamored by the hills and mountains. At Boone, she became what you can call an “dedicated hiker,” always finding joy and solace in exploring scenic trails. When not hiking, or studying for the LSATs, Caroline loves to cook. She tries just about any recipe and will watch anything and everything on Instagram or TikTok in hopes of gaining inspiration to add to her limited childhood palate of “Midwestern foods”, as her parents are from Ohio. For more on that, we suggest you talk to her, you won’t be bored.
