Shelby Wellmon, Esquire.
From a young age, Shelby has always heard she should be an attorney because she loved to argue and negotiate for her position on things. A tireless champion for others, Shelby often volunteered and spent her time giving back to others around her during her undergraduate career at Catawba College. Shelby could be found volunteering with Special Olympics, Homeless shelters, and local schools in the area. Her love for helping others and her passion to advocate ultimately led her to law school. Shelby attended Elon University School of Law where she obtained not only her Juris Doctorate but also her Masters in Business Administration. During law school, Shelby gained experience with Child Protective Services helping to advocate for children. Shelby also had the opportunity to clerk for the Honorable Gladys Collazo with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Although Shelby has had a wide variety of experiences, her passion is family law and business law.
Shelby was born and raised in Salisbury, NC, home of the beloved Cheerwine. Shelby is currently engaged to be married and has a Shiba Inu dog named Thor. When Shelby is not practicing law, she enjoys watching sports, kayaking, and cozying up to a bonfire.
