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.

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.

Kathleen Miller

From the first conversation that we had with Kathleen, we knew that she was someone we wanted on the Breeden Law team.

Kathleen is a community service oriented attorney who is committed to making the law transparent and understandable for clients and citizens, and she is a strong advocate with the dedication and the skills to serve her clients’ best interests.

The fact that she followed the same path that Jonathan did into the law – from rural Southeastern North Carolina to a political science degree at NC State to graduating from Campbell Law School – was just icing on the cake.

  • When she isn’t preparing for court or advocating for her clients, you can find Kathleen spending time with her family and friends and with her dog, 6ix.

Andria Sowder

Andria is interested in family law because she wants to make a difference for children and families in tough circumstances.

Her passion for service and her outstanding work ethic make her an asset to our office, and we are impressed every day with her ability to get things done for our firm and our clients.

  • Coming to North Carolina from the Roanoke area of Virginia, you can find Andria exploring Raleigh or taking college courses online when she is not working in our Garner office.

Merari Chavez

Merari is the kind, empathetic voice who answers the phone when you call Breeden Law Office, who greets you when you visit us in Garner, and who keeps our whole team organized and efficient.

A graduate of UNC-Greensboro, Merari is a native of Washington, North Carolina and enjoys visiting family and friends in her hometown whenever she can.

  • When she’s not in the office, you can find her painting, spending time with her family, and working on making her Raleigh apartment feel like home.
