About me

I have been representing injured and disabled people in Western North Carolina since 1999.  Injuries are personal, and they deserve an attorney who can provide personal service.   You will not be assigned a number and passed to a legal assistant.  You will know what is going on with your case at all times.  You will be able to speak with your attorney in person when you want.  You will be treated as a person, not a paycheck. 

I've built my practice from referrals from clients and other attorneys.  Therefore, I must provide excellent service, and I pride myself in combining sharp legal skills with compassionate service.
