Attorney Kathryn Tart

  • Practicing Family Law for 20 years

Kathryn Tart came to Triangle Smart Divorce because of a feral cat. You read that right, and yes, we never expected to be writing that line in one of our team member’s bios. Kathryn went to Campbell University School of Law with Julianne Rothert. Julianne adopted a feral cat, even though the school, apparently overrun with feral cats, had strict rules against it. Kathryn and Julianne bonded while taking care of the cat and hiding it from the anti-cat forces of the administration.

Fast-forward a few years. Julianne is a family law attorney at Triangle Smart Divorce. Kathryn Tart has her own family law firm in Dunn, NC. Kathryn loves practicing family law. She has successfully run and grown her firm for over a decade, helping scores of clients get through their family law issues as efficiently and with as little stress as possible.

More than most family law attorneys, Kathryn knows what her clients are going through; the empathy she shows them is hard-earned. While building her law career she went through a divorce that gave her the real-life experience to understand what her clients were dealing with.

She channeled this into providing her clients deeper, more insightful, more empathetic advice and guidance. She had the battle scars to support one of her credos, “You need to step out of your emotions to figure out the best way forward.”

Kathryn was strident that her clients could and would “use divorce to make really smart moves for your future.”

There was only one thing Kathryn didn’t enjoy about her practice – running a law firm. The day-to-day management took away from concentrating solely on working with clients. In one of those weird chains of events that sometimes lead to big things, Kathryn was contemplating her future when she ran across a video by our own Jenny Bradley. It spoke to her. She checked out Jenny and Triangle Smart Divorce. She reconnected with her fellow feral cat harborer, Julianne.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Kathryn is no longer hiding cats from law school administrators. She is a mother to two sons, a mini-Australian labradoodle, and grandmother to a husky. Her many hobbies include Audible, exercise, cooking, podcasts, and exploring new places.
