For over 35 years, Rick Elkins has represented individuals and families involved in domestic disagreements in North Carolina. He takes pride in helping families by focusing on the individual needs of each of his clients. He appears regularly in the District Court of Mecklenburg County, and in many of the courts in the adjacent counties.
Early in his career, Rick served as a District Court Judge in Mecklenburg County for eight years, from 1984 to 1992, where most of his time was spent in family court. He then re-entered private practice, focusing on family law. He regularly serves as a mediator and as an arbitrator in domestic cases, where his goal is to help families reach a resolution outside of court.
Rick spent most of his childhood in Charlotte, where he has lived since the fifth grade. He attended South Mecklenburg High School and has been a member of Myers Park United Methodist Church since the early 1960s.
