Kelly Crecco was born in Moorestown, New Jersey, but has lived most of her life in Wilmington, North Carolina. During law school at the University of North Carolina, Kelly served as the Executive Editor for UNC Law’s First Amendment Law Review, as the President of Child Action, a children’s advocacy student organization, and as a Guardian ad Litem in Orange County. After her first year of law school, Kelly split her summer interning at the New Hanover County District Attorney’s Office in Wilmington and Legal Aid’s Advocates for Children’s Services in Durham. After her second year of law school, Kelly served as a summer intern at The Law Corner, and she continued to work at The Law Corner as a law clerk during her last year of law school. After being admitted to practice law in North Carolina, Kelly transitioned to an associate attorney position at the firm.
Kelly’s primary area of practice is family law. She also practices basic estate planning. She is a member of the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association and the Wake County Bar Association. Kelly is trained in the collaborative law process, which offers a dispute resolution process that is cooperative rather than adversarial. When practical, Kelly wants to help clients resolve their family law issues through alternative dispute resolution pathways rather than through litigation. She often finds that using approaches like mediation and collaboration lead to better results for both parties. Kelly likes to advocate for her clients through a more peaceful, less litigious process.
