About Me

I grew up in Rock Hill, then came to Spartanburg to go to Wofford College, where I graduated in 1996.  I graduated from law school at the University of South Carolina in 2000. 

After that, I worked as a law clerk for a state circuit court judge in Barnwell, who held court mostly in Aiken, Bamberg, and Barnwell.  After a year there, I returned to the Upstate in 2001 to practice law in Easley.

In 2005, I joined this firm.  I am grateful to practice law here.  I am thankful to be part of the Spartanburg community, where my wife and I raise our four children.  We belong to First Presbyterian Church here in town, where I'm a deacon.  Over the years, I've served Spartanburg on the boards of the local Red Cross and TOTAL Ministries, a mission funded by local churches to feed and clothe the less fortunate. 

I've been honored to be an elected leader within the legal profession as a two-term member of the board of directors for the state criminal defense lawyers association and chairman of the personal injury and insurance committee of the South Carolina Bar. 

For my entire legal career starting in 2001, I've worked to help people who got hurt through no fault of their own and defend people accused of crime, including DUI.  I've tried numerous cases to a jury verdict, from car accidents to residential construction to assault and battery with intent to kill, and DUIs.  I've  also tried several workers’ compensation hearings.

The best thing about being a lawyer is I get to be a voice for folks who might not otherwise have one.  I am very proud of the people I help and the causes I represent.
