About me

I've represented criminal and traffic clients in courtrooms  across NC for over 20 years and truly love what I do. I have helped so many people get their driving privileges back after years- and even decades - of license revocation. Many of those clients had tremendously complicated matters to resolve and they believed they'd never drive legally again.  Having the ability to give back the freedom and independence a license imparts is wonderfully gratifying!

 I've also had the privilege of assisting  drivers from other states who got the " Blue-Light Special" while in NC.  I have now represented  folks from 32 other States as well as drivers from Puerto Rico and US Islands  AND Canada. 

If you  find yourself hoping to have your driving privileges restored and want to talk to me OR you've come home from a business trip, vactation or driving through NC with an unwelcome surprise in the form of a traffic citation or crim inalcharge, please consider calling me at 919 220 2563 (preferred) or emailing me at
