Family Law

Richard D. Stephens Dozier, Miller, Pollard & Murphy LLP, Charlotte

I have almost a complete set of baseball cards from 1955, including Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax. I collected them when I was 9 years old and a real fan. I found them years later. My mother had saved them in a shoebox.

Vita: Born Aug. 7, 1945, in Burke County; bachelor’s from UNC Chapel Hill and law degree from Columbia University; wife and three children. Why she chose this field: It offers an opportunity to help people. What she’d be if not a lawyer: MA teacher or political-science professor. I have always enjoyed the political process. Hero: Atticus Finch, from To Kill A Mockingbird. When he walks out of the courtroom, the people stand in respect. That may be my all-time favorite movie scene. Passions: My family, family law, tennis, bluegrass music, hiking in the mountains and the Sunday crossword puzzle. Recent reading: My wife has me reading Wendell Berry. I just finished Hannah Coulter and Andy Catlett. Don’t ask her to: Do something I really don’t want to do.
