DaVon Maddox is a family law attorney in Gaston County, North Carolina and works out of the firm’s Gastonia office.
She was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. She first started talking about becoming an attorney while she was in elementary school. She enjoyed watching lawyers on TV in movies and shows. She attended The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia for undergrad, where she majored in Psychology and minored in Sociology. Her primary study was child development, in hopes that it would help her become a more compassionate family law attorney. She began interning at different child welfare agencies, and spending time observing family court. This helped her build a network and become the president of her college’s Minority Pre-Law Association.DaVon decided to move away from Virginia to pursue her legal education at the University of Georgia School of Law. Naturally, she gravitated towards family law courses, including participating in the Family Justice Clinic. She became president of Family Law Society during her second year of law school. She spent her first summer clerking for two Juvenile Court judges, and her second summer as a clerk for Legal Aid of North Carolina. She has gained experience not only in child welfare, but also domestic violence and general family law practice.
