Our Team

Attorney Marsha Kennedy founded Kennedy Law Associates PLLC because she is strongly committed to helping people face divorce with dignity and grace as she has too often witnessed the destruction divorce can cause. As a result of her own separation and divorce, Ms. Kennedy is committed to improving the divorce process.

At Kennedy Law, we strongly believe in the mediation process and the benefits mediation can have on amicably resolving difficult issues. However, we also recognize that not all disputes can be resolved peacefully. Each situation is unique and we will work hard to find the right solution for each of our clients. If it is necessary, we are ready, willing and able to take your case to Court.

Marsha C. Kennedy

In all areas of my practice of family law, I am committed to not only helping individuals successfully navigate the divorce process but to also helping them begin to rebuild and restore their lives. Helping people facing divorce is much more than a career to me. As a result of my own separation and divorce as well as helping several of my closest friends, I have become intensely interested and committed to improving the divorce process. I am strongly committed to helping people facing divorce do so with grace and dignity as I have witnessed too often the destruction divorce can cause.

Graham M. Owen

I am a Charlotte native and am glad to have found my way home. I spend my free time taking walks through Freedom Park, playing tennis, and cheering on my beloved Tarheels. Family law won my heart due the recent developments in the field and the need for new attorneys who are understanding of nontraditional relationships. Furthermore, KLA's commitment to standing by its clients, both in the courtrrom and out, ensures that clients' emotional health is a consideration of utmost import.


Charles "Charlie" B.Hagerman

I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. I am a product of both the Catholic School system and CMS. While attending Independence High School, I was a member of the debate team and competed in the Harvard National Debate. After high school, I went to East Carolina University knowing that I wanted to go to law school, so I studies the subjects that are the traditional path to law school-double major of Philosophy and Political Science.


Amanda J. Farooqi

I am very fortunate to be joining the Kennedy Law Associates team as an Associate Attorney. I attended law school after witnessing family members and close friends go through the divorce process. After seeing firsthand both the positive and negative sides of the process, and how many people were affected by one couple's decision, I knew that Family Law was an area that I would be passionate about, and that through Family Law, I would be able to offer some support to others going through such a challenging time.
