Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to welcome Afi S. Johnson-Parris to the Greensboro, NC office as partner in the Family Law Department.
A North Carolina Board Certified Family Law Specialist, Johnson-Parris represents clients in a full range of family law matters. Prior to joining Fox, she was a solo practitioner operating as Johnson-Parris Law, PLLC.
“My decision to join Fox Rothschild represents an opportunity to serve my clients better with a broader base of support through additional staff and resources,” said Johnson-Parris. “It is also a homecoming of sorts, because I began my family law practice 14 years ago at Smith Moore Leatherwood, which combined with Fox Rothschild in 2018. I am excited to embark upon this new chapter and to join an innovative, dynamic and growing firm.”
“Afi is well known throughout the region for her fierce and compassionate representation of clients who are navigating complex and sensitive marital disputes,” said Richard A. Coughlin, Managing Partner of Fox’s Greensboro office. “We are thrilled to welcome her back to our Greensboro office.”
Johnson-Parris advises clients on a variety of complex legal issues related to absolute and collaborative divorce, equitable distribution, alimony, child custody and support and name changes. She also has significant experience guiding clients through matters involving children, including relative caregiver adoptions, paternity/legitimation and international kidnapping matters.
Johnson-Parris sits on the boards of the NC Equal Access to Justice Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, Guilford Education Alliance and Junior League of Greensboro. She is also active in various committees and initiatives of the Greensboro Bar Association, North Carolina Bar Association, Legal Aid of North Carolina and the American Bar Association.
An Air Force veteran who served for several years as a communications computer systems analysis officer, Johnson-Parris earned her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, her M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix, Southern Colorado and her B.B.A. from University of Miami.
