Graham M. Owen joined Charles R. Ullman & Associates in 2016 to practice family law, a professional goal he has had since his second year of law school.
A native of Charlotte, Mr. Owen attended the University of North Carolina School of Law, where he interned at a family law firm during the summer after his first year. During that internship, he saw firsthand the effect that lawyers can have on helping individuals through some of the most trying times in their lives, and he knew that’s what he wanted to do.
His work encompassed the full range of family law services, from alimony to child custody matters to post-separation support.
No matter what case he is working on, Mr. Owen gives his clients the undivided attention they deserve and the emotional support they oftentimes need. When people are striving to resolve family matters, Mr. Owen is aware that they are many times stuck in stressful, vulnerable situations. He sees his role for them as being an attorney who not only provides helpful and strategic legal guidance, but also one who lends an ear when clients need someone to talk to about the difficulties they are facing.
Mr. Owen received a bachelor’s degree in political science from UNC-Charlotte in 2010, graduating magna cum laude. During law school, he clerked for Judge Louis A. Trosch in North Carolina’s 26th Judicial District, and during his third year, he worked at the UNC Consumer Financial Transactions Clinic as a certified law student advocating for the rights of predatory-lending victims. His family law internship led him to a Charlotte firm where he worked for a year after earning his J.D. in 2015.
Mr. Owen’s primary interest away from work is sports. He enjoys being active by playing tennis and golf and is a UNC Tarheels and Carolina Panthers fan.
