“The thing I value most about my
job is the opportunity to be a voice and  
an advocate for those in need.”

Anna Kalarites’ practice focuses on fighting for individual’s rights in nursing home, medical malpractice, and employment issues.

Anna grew up in Winston-Salem, and upon graduating from Duke University, moved to Washington, DC. After living and working in DC for seven years, Anna decided to go to law school. Anna graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 2014.

After law school, Anna and her husband moved back to North Carolina so that Anna could practice law with her father, David Pishko. Together, they help those who have been harmed in nursing homes or hospitals, as well as those harmed in their places of work.

Anna is a past chair of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) Nursing Home Section and the Women’s Caucus, is the former Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion for NCAJ and is the current Vice President of Education.

Outside of work, Anna enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters, Abigail and Emma. When not busy shuttling them from dance class to swim class, she volunteers with Back Pack Buddies through the Junior League of Raleigh and is on the Edenton Street United Methodist Church Preschool Council.
