Kerri Bianchi, J.D.
Director of Court Services
"I believe that through my distinctive blend of family-centered legal expertise and community engagement, I have cultivated a deep understanding of the issues facing individuals and families."
Kerri Bianchi is the Director of Court Services for CDSS. She is a mediator certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission in Superior Court and in District Court for Family Financial and Criminal Court actions.
Kerri administers the Wake County District Court Mediation Program (the 10th District) and in Warren, Franklin, Vance and Granville counties (9th District) as well.
Kerri trains mediators for the District Court Mediation program throughout the year.
She conducts mediations for individuals as well as for the Medicaid program.
Kerri brings over 25 years experience as an attorney and mediator to her work. She dedicated the majority of her career as a trial attorney to serving the needs of children involved in the court system.
Throughout her career in family law, she litigated many cases, but negotiated and settled many more.
A large component of her work as an attorney included mediating with attorneys, parents, psychiatrists, counselors and teachers. She worked with people from a rich variety of backgrounds as they navigated the most difficult situations of their lives: child custody, divorce, juvenile delinquency, spousal and child support, child abuse and neglect. She also guided her clients through real estate transactions, estate planning, and setting up and selling small businesses.
Kerri has chosen to devote this season of her career to enabling people to actively engage in resolving their challenges through mediation.
Kerri has always carved out time to give back to the community through varied volunteer work for her children’s schools and teams, for local charities, for her college alumnae association and for her church.
*Kerri is not licensed to practice law in North Carolina and is licensed to practice law in New York.
