Raleigh, N.C. (May 5, 2022) – Smith Debnam today announced the addition of family law attorney Tomomi Atamas to the firm. A graduate of Harvard Law School, former Lehman Brothers investment banker, and former Wall Street securities lawyer, Atamas will focus her practice representing clients in all areas of family law, including separation and divorce, equitable distribution, alimony, post-separation support, child custody, child support, prenuptial agreements, and domestic violence.
Before joining Smith Debnam, Atamas practiced family law at The Doyle Law Group in Raleigh, North Carolina. She began her legal career practicing securities law in Manhattan. She then lived in Tokyo as a stay-at-home mom, before moving to Raleigh in 2016.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Tomomi to our firm,” said Lynn McNally, board certified family law specialist and senior partner at Smith Debnam. “Family law clients will benefit from Tomomi’s strong background in economics and investment banking to assist them with the division of assets, child support, and alimony. While Tomomi’s background is impressive and lends itself to the comprehensive management of complex financial issues, family law clients will find her as warm and caring as she is organized and precise.”
Atamas is licensed to practice law in North Carolina and the state of New York. She earned her B.A. magna cum laude from Brown University and her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
