Happy New Year!  For divorce lawyers practicing family law in Asheville, 2011 promises to be an exciting year.  With the retirement of Chief District Court Judge Gary Cash, and the metriculation of the Honorable Marvin P. Pope Jr. to the Superior Court bench, two vacancies have occurred in the Buncombe County Family Court.

The Honorable Julie M.  Kepple was sworn in on New Years Day and has taken the seat vacated by Judge Cash.  An appointment is anticipated by the Governor’s office this month to fill the vacancy left by Judge Pope.  Presently, The Honorable Dennis J. Redwing, from Gastonia, is sitting in Judge Pope’s seat, pending the Governor’s appointment.

We at Siemens Law Office are confident that the same consistent, credible approach to advocacy, well grounded in the law and the facts of each case, which has served our clients  in the past, will continue to serve our clients well in 2011.  We welcome the new jurists and wish them well.
