About Kelly Thompson

Kelly and her husband Robert are both originally from West Virginia. They met many years ago at West Virginia University where they enjoyed arguing with one another in class. After a short stint in Charleston, West Virginia, Kelly and Robert moved to Raleigh ten years ago. Robert works as an account executive with WRAL Television. He is also enrolled in Shaw University’s Divinity Program and is pursuing a Masters Degree in Divinity.

In 2011, the Thompsons welcomed a son, Robbie. Robbie is an energetic two year old who loves cars, singing and dancing, and girls of all ages. He recently started preschool, which he loves.

The Thompsons are also animal lovers of long standing and have two dogs, Alex and Charlie. Despite the names, both dogs are girls. Alex seems to be part sheep dog and Charlie is part german shepherd and part chow. Needless to say, both are extremely hairy.

Kelly attended Campbell University School of Law. While in school she worked for Professor Richard Lord as a Williston Scholar and tutored other students as a Teaching Scholar. Kelly was also a member of Law Review and clerked with the Mast Law Firm in Smithfield. She graduated from Campbell in 2007,  cum laude. Kelly has always been interested in family law and has exclusively devoted her practice to that area of the law.

Kelly is a history buff who loves all things British. After retirement, she plans to pursue a doctorate in history just for fun. Kelly also enjoys running and biking and spending time with her family.

“My approach to family law is a long term strategy that takes into account you future relationships while protecting and asserting your rights in the short term.”
