About me

Originally from Texas, I have lived in Virginia since 2006.  I became a lawyer because I enjoy helping people solve problems.  I know that people come to attorneys because they are stressed; many are facing very difficult times in their lives.  Therefore my philosophy is to treat every client as a person, not as "just another case."  


 


When not working, I spend my time with my wife, Rhiannon, and our three sons.
