MONROE, N.C., July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sodoma Law, a leading family-focused and family-driven firm headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, today announced the opening of its fourth location, in Monroe, NC. Sodoma Law attorney Penelope L. Hefner has been named a Principal, and is now leading the Union County office. The location is a natural fit for both the firm and for Ms. Hefner, who is a past President of and active participant in the Union County Bar and has many current clients in the area.

"When we were considering adding another office and, at the same time, an expansion of our leadership team, it quickly became apparent that Union County and Penelope presented an outstanding opportunity for both," said Nicole H. Sodoma, Managing Principal, Sodoma Law. "Penelope embodies the compassionate, tenacious approach our firm is known for, advocating tirelessly for her clients while at the same time maintaining an extraordinary commitment to the community at large. In Union County, she contributes her leadership skills to the Union County Community Shelter and Union Symphony Society, among other causes."

One of the fastest growing counties in the country, Union County will be well served by Sodoma Law's holistic approach. While the branch will focus primarily on Family Law (divorce, child custody and support, alimony, pre- and post-marital agreements, etc.), Union County clients will have access to Sodoma Law's Appellate, Estate Planning, Assisted Reproductive Technology and Business Litigation practice areas. In addition, in Ms. Hefner, they are gaining access to a certified Parenting Coordinator, one of only approximately thirty across Union and Mecklenburg counties (out of which four practice with Sodoma Law). Parenting Coordinators work with parents involved in high conflict custody cases to improve communication skills, teach co-parenting techniques and ultimately attempt to reduce conflict.  

An attorney with Sodoma Law for several years and in practice for close to ten, Ms. Hefner is a past recipient of the North Carolina Lawyers Weekly's Women of Justice and Safe Alliance's Commitment to Justice award. She received her J.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law.

"I look forward to bringing a fresh perspective, alongside respect for tradition, to the law services available in Union County," said Ms. Hefner. "I know that Sodoma Law's signature high level of service will be an outstanding fit for the needs of this rapidly growing, exciting community."
