It's #FunFactFriday and we're bringing the answers to popular questions about trauma-informed care!
What are ACEs?
ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) are serious childhood traumas that can result in toxic stress. Prolonged exposure to ACEs can create toxic stress, which can damage the developing brain and body of children and affect overall health. Toxic stress may prevent a child from learning or playing in a healthy way with other children, and can cause long-term health problems.
What is Resilience?
Research shows that if caregivers provide a safe environment for children and teach them how to be resilient, that helps reduce the effects of ACEs. ... See MoreSee Less

This month marks the 15th anniversary of the beginning of Wake Family Law Group by founding partners, Marc Sokol, Mike Schilawski, Cathy McLamb, Helen O’Shaughnessy, and Suzanne Ladd, who were also joined by the talented Jenny Bradley.
WFLG was one of the first firms in the state to focus on bringing together board-certified family law specialists to create a highly specialized team of family law experts. All of the member-owners were required to be (and still are) board-certified family law specialists, and all associates are expected to become specialists when eligible.
When asked in an early interview about how establishing the new firm would benefit clients, the response was:
“Beyond our combined years of experience and the prime location, our focus on family law seems to provide a measure of comfort to our clients. We haven’t yet heard “Can you handle this case?” Clients seem to understand that with a firm of certified specialists in family law, we do handle all types of cases, from relatively easy to highly complex. There are many excellent family lawyers in Wake County, many who are also certified specialists and we have established a strong mutual respect. This level of commitment to the practice area is a great cost-saver to all of the clients involved. We work together well and know how and when to settle cases.
Individually, before coming together, we had strong reputations in the field. Combined, we really offer a depth of knowledge and experience that is atypical.”
