Back in law school, Anna Blood set a goal of one day opening her own law firm in the place she grew up. The fact that she found an office in historic downtown Waxhaw is just icing on the cake for the Union County native.
After working at a law firm in Indian Trail, Blood struck out on her own when she opened the Blood Law Firm at 108 E. South Main St. in downtown Waxhaw in June. Blood practices in the areas of Family Law, Personal Injury, Criminal Defense and Wills and Estates.
“It was always my plan to go out on my own,” Blood said. “I wrote my business plan in law school. I’ve always thought Waxhaw is a great place and I have always loved it down here. My goal is to stay here in Waxhaw and grow.”
Blood grew up in Waxhaw and Weddington. She attended UNC-Charlotte before transferring and graduating with her undergraduate degree from St. Leo University in Florida. Blood is married to Richie Blood, the son of Rick “The Dragon” Steamboat. Richie Blood is also known as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wrestler Richie Steamboat.
Blood said her interest in family law stems from her experiences while growing up.
“My parents got divorced when I was two, and that is why I love family law because I had experienced a lot of the same struggles that my clients deal with,” Blood said.
“I really understand how my clients feel. My goal as an attorney is to help people understand the law. I want to empower my clients by helping them understand their rights. I really love my job and I love being a lawyer, and I think that makes a difference in the kind of representation you can give a client”
