Our Staff


Beth Breeden

Whether she is at the office or at home, helping people reach their potential is the work that Beth really loves.

She sees her role at Breeden Law as working behind the scenes so that our staff members have the tools that they need to deliver a positive client experience and a great value from the first phone call through the conclusion of each case.

  • A former Wake County high school social studies teacher who moved to North Carolina for school and never left, Beth loves to travel and roots hard for the Duke Blue Devils.
  • When she isn’t at the office, Beth enjoys homeschooling her children, reading, writing, photography, and hanging out with the family’s Australian labradoodle, Merlin.

Alex Lanas

Alex is a native Texan who moved to North Carolina, and she comes to Breeden Law from a client service role in a large Fort Worth law firm.

She brought her warm personality and sunny disposition with her from the Lone Star State, and we think she is the ideal person to welcome clients to our office because she is a great listener and truly cares about other people.

  • When she is not at Breeden Law, Alex enjoys traveling, painting, online gaming, spending time with her boyfriend, and cooking fabulous new recipes from scratch.

Raven Byrne

Raven Byrne brings over a decade of legal experience to her role with Breeden Law Firm.

Throughout her career, Raven has helped North Carolina families navigate the complex issues that come with separation and divorce. She consistently focuses on moving clients toward better futures using the legal process.

Raven brings deep litigation and client service experience to her consultations and legal work, and she consistently focuses on pursuing positive outcomes that serve her clients’ goals. She truly cares about our clients, and that is apparent from the initial meeting to the conclusion of each case.

Raven is a North Carolina native and a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and of Campbell Law School.

  • When she is not practicing law, Raven enjoys spending time with her family, serving in her church, and traveling to support her husband’s competitive fishing team.

Daniel Krchnavek

Associate attorney Daniel Krchnavek is a New Jersey native who is proud to call North Carolina his adopted home.

Daniel brings the trifecta of personal qualities that we look for in an associate to his practice at Breeden Law: he works hard, he is smart, and he is humble. Daniel truly cares for clients and their goals, and he has a true love of litigation that makes him a natural fit for family law.

  • When he isn’t meeting with clients, managing a growing caseload, or preparing for court, you can find Daniel spending time with his family on their picturesque property in southeastern Wake County, cheering on a variety of sports teams, and keeping up a wide network of family and friends all over the country.
