About Me

I grew up in Statesville, NC, attended UNC-Chapel Hill and then, because I knew that I wanted to return to Statesville to practice law, I spent three years in Los Angles, CA while attending Pepperdine University School of Law.  I believe this experience broadened my horizons.


I have practiced law in Statesville since 1983.  Over the years, my practice has narrowed from a broad general practice to one focused on Worker's Compensation and Personal Injury cases.  I still do quite a bit of residential real estate work and, unlike most lawyers these days, I still do my own title examinations rather than hiring abstractor to do this.


While I do not handle contested domestic cases or criminal matters anymore, I still handle uncontested divorces and simple traffic tickets.  I also handle routine wills and estate matters and basic incorporation work.


I am married to April E. Mattox and I have three children, Marett, Taylor and Davidson Pressly.  My athletic interests through the years included high school football (Go Greyhounds!!), bicycle racing and ice hockey.  Currently, I enjoy resistance training, yoga and I am an avid golfer.
