This is subjective, but it generally means a case mired in family law, such as divorce, custody, etc. Sometimes, a civil restraining order may also be seen as a "domestic case."
But it is less about labels and more about substance. IF an attorney believes that they have a grossly unfair advantage, a conflict of interest, or otherwise somehow unethical - see here
- then they must decline the representation. The only way that they can represent one in such as situation is if the other party gave written consent to it.
JustAnswer experts cannot refer you to specific
attorneys because of ethical considerations. May I recommend the NC Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
The way to ensure an attorney is credible is to look them up on the NC Bar page, first:
One may also wish to then check to see if they have been disciplined by the Bar for any reason:
