Caroline is a board-certified specialist in Elder Law by the North Carolina State Bar and is one of only twenty NC lawyers currently designated as Board Certified Elder Law Attorneys (CELA) by The National Elder Law Foundation. Caroline advises clients on matters relating to guardianship, Medicaid and other public benefits planning. In addition, she often serves as trustee, guardian, Executor and attorney-in-fact under powers of attorney.

Caroline has practiced law for over 20 years, but the last 2 ½ years has been in her own private elder law practice, Knox Law, working closely with a partnering company, Caregiver Support Services. Caroline enjoys working with and helping her clients in a variety of areas.
