About Me

Originally from Michigan by way of Ohio, I moved to North Carolina in 2008 and joined the Law Offices of John T. Orcutt in 2009. I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration from Ohio University and my Juris Doctor degree from Ohio Northern University. During law school, I earned a certificate in global arbitration law and practice with Hamline University at Queen Mary University of London. I enjoy practicing consumer bankruptcy law because I can see the relief our services provide our clients on a daily basis.
