I began practicing law in Shelby, NC in 1997 after graduating from Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, NC. I began my career in private practice and spent 12 years with the firm of Flowers, Martin, Moore & Ditz, P.A. where I was a partner focusing on criminal law, civil litigation, and Social Security disability. I left the firm in 2009 to join the Cleveland County District Attorney's Office where I practiced until 2013. In my time as an Assistant District Attorney, I tried serious felony cases including murder, robbery, kidnapping, and assaults. In 2013, I returned to private practice opening my own firm. In 2015, I joined with attorney H. Jamaal Edwards and attorney Lacey Beam to form the firm Ditz Edwards & Beam, PLLC.
During my years of practice, I have focused specifically on Criminal Law, Business Law, Employment Law, Wills and Advanced Directives, and Family Law. My experience in prosecuting cases on behalf of the State of North Carolina has given me immense experience with jury trials and provided me with an inside view of how the State approaches and handles these cases which I can put to work helping my clients charged with serious crimes.
I am a graduate of Wake Forest University School of Law, obtaining my Juris Doctor degree in 1997 and Syracuse University where I was awared a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations in 1993. I live in Kings Mountain, NC with my wife Celena and our daughter Rory.
