Jade Stanford moved to North Carolina from south Louisiana in the summer of 2013. As a Cajun boy growing up, Jade loved anything fast and enjoyed working with his dad in the tire business. Jade could not sit still, and so at 18, he traded sitting in classes at college for pipeline work in the oil fields of Texas and Louisiana. His talents for knowing how things work, taking things apart and putting them back together again, an insane recall of customers’ vehicles and tire sizes, and a genuine love for serving, have all come together in the perfect career for Jade.
With over 20 years of experience, Jade opened Christian Brothers Automotive in Concord on August 12, 2013. He loves giving customers the Nice Difference® in auto repair and being able to live out the Christian Brothers’ motto “love your neighbor as yourself” through his business. Jade is happily married to his best friend, Jennifer. Together they bravely raise six children ranging in age from 6-20. In his free time, Jade loves working out with his local F3 group, mountain biking, church planting, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with his community.

I grew up in Montoursville, Pennsylvania but have called North Carolina home for the last 10 years. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2008 with a dual bachelor’s degree in Political Science and African Studies. I continued my legal education at Duke University where I received a Paralegal Certification before attending Charlotte School of Law in 2013. I am currently licensed and insured to practice law in the state of North Carolina.
I have been actively involved with a number of pro bono events including Wills for Hero’s and my involvement with pro bono work for first responders and the elderly ignited my passion for estate planning. Determined to pave my own way, I branched out and started my own practice in 2016. Although my work is estate planning, my passion is teaching the importance of having and maintaining essential end of life documents and the comfort that they bring to those left behind. My non-traditional mobile law office offers the competent legal work that you expect and the convenience that your family needs.
On a personal note, I am a home improvement junkie! On any given weekend, you can probably find me with tools in hand, ready to tackle my next project and I enjoy spending time with my family exploring the great outdoors on our beautiful farm.
