Charlotte Divorce Attorneys


During a divorce, tensions tend to run high, causing very common issues to become complicated very quickly. Spouses tend to ask: Who gets to stay in the house? Am I going to lose the car I drive? Am I going to have to buy my ex-spouse a new car? Who are the kids going to live with? Am I going to be responsible for my ex-spouse’s debt? What is going to happen to the debt we have together? Am I going to get financial support during our separation and after we divorce?

Our attorneys take a cutting edge approach to handling divorce, child custody, adoption and other family-related legal matters across the State of North Carolina. Unlike your typical court case, a divorce case is far more complex and involved. Contact us today to learn more about the steps along the way, in the North Carolina separation and divorce process.

A Skilled Family Law Firm that Understands the Best Strategy to Employ for its Clients

At Randall & Stump, PLLC, we understand that you cannot take a “cookie cutter” approach to all cases. The strategy for handling each case is specific to the circumstances and needs of each particular client. In some cases, the individuals involved are willing to handle issues amicably, and the strategy is much more relaxed and straightforward. In other cases, the tension is at an all-time high, and resolving issues will not be as cordial. In those cases, we are ready to employ creative and aggressive strategies to secure the best outcomes for our clients, whether we are in the negotiation process or at trial in court. No matter the strategy, our client comes first, not the other side!

“We treat our clients like people, not file numbers. If you call our office to speak to your lawyer, you will.

Samuel J. Randall IV

Managing Partner

Since 1998, Samuel J. Randall, IV has built a solid reputation among his peers, adversaries and the judiciary in Southeastern North Carolina as an aggressive and skilled criminal defense lawyer and advocate for his clients. Mr. Randall has represented hundreds of clients in criminal defense matters in the Federal and State courts of North Carolina. Mr. Randall’s clients have been accused of every crime in the book, ranging from the most serious of matters, such as First Degree Murder and Drug Trafficking to lesser charges such as Shoplifting, and Traffic Violations.

"I worked with Samuel and he did a fantastic job. I had gotten a speeding ticket with a really high fine attached to it and he got it dismissed entirely! He was very easy to work with and took care of pretty much everything - after a brief phone call to discuss the context of my ticket, all ll I had to do was send a check, sign a waiver of appearance and he appeared in court on my behalf and totally handled it."
Finley Amato
"Sam Randall was excellent! He was there to defend me "tooth and nail" and did just that. He did his research and was fully prepared when we got to court. I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
Kristi Bennett
"Sam explored every option available to me to get the best outcome for my case. He was very knowledgeable and persistent. I highly recommend Randall and Stump if you're stuck in a jam."

He was always very quick to respond and answer any and every question. I would highly recommend Randall & Stump."
