Born and raised in New Jersey, Kathy Holmes Lucas is quick to point out she grew up in “South” Jersey. Her parents are from Hungary which makes Kathy a first-generation American (she is, however, a Hungarian citizen as well). Growing up she participated in sports such as soccer and softball but equally enjoyed dance, cheerleading, mock trial and was a debutante. She carries forward in her practice this love for variety by being just as comfortable in court as with mediating her clients’ cases. She focuses on her clients’ needs, goals and interests, and how they can best be met. For Kathy, every client is important and treated like a member of the family.

She attended the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey for her undergraduate studies. During her four-year college career she double majored in Psychology and Criminal Justice, graduating cum laude in both, earned a minor in Political Science and held down two jobs. It is no wonder she also considers this time when she became rather proficient in the “art” of multitasking. She then received her J.D. from the Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University. While attending law school Kathy decided she like North Carolina so much that she would make it home.

Kathy's practice is exclusively devoted to family law and domestic law cases including child custody and support, post-separation support, alimony, equitable distribution, separation agreements and absolute divorce. She is a member of the Family Law Section of the North Carolina Bar Association and the Wake County Bar.

When she's not working Kathy enjoys getting her hands dirty in the yard with various landscaping and gardening projects. For exercise she spends the weekends chasing after her son, Preston, at their home in Raleigh.
