Caprara, Basil Camden
My name is Basil Camden Caprara, and I am an attorney currently practicing in Onslow County, North Carolina. I was born in Vicenza, Italy, as a result of my father being in the military, but however, shortly after my birth, we moved back to eastern North Carolina where both of my parents were from. I attended Arendell Parrott Academy in Kinston, NC, from Kindergarten through Graduation (13 years). Upon my graduation, I was accepted into University of North Carolina - Wilmington, from which I later received my bachelor's degree, with honors, in Criminology, with a focus on Criminal Justice, and a dual English and History minor.
I was accepted into Campbell University Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law, and began law school in August of 2018, just after getting awarded my undergraduate degree in May. I received my law degree in the Spring of 2021 and sat for the Uniform Bar Exam that summer. I received a grade on the bar exam high enough to authorize me to practice in any of the states that have adopted the uniform bar exam, which includes North Carolina.
I currently practice primarily domestic/family law which includes divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, equitable distribution, and other domestic actions. I also do quite a bit of court appointed work, both in Onslow and Jones County, by serving as a Parent-Defender attorney in Juvenile Abuse/Neglect/Dependency cases and a court appointed attorney for child support contempt matters. In further service to the community, I am also a court-appointed guardian ad litem for incompetency proceedings involving adults who lack capacity to care for themselves.
In my free time, I like to enjoy time with my long-term girlfriend, Sierra; I also enjoy bowling, cooking (in all forms, shapes, and sizes), and reading, along with spending time with the rest of my family.
