I attended and graduated from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina in May 2001. Following his graduation from The Citadel, I attended law school at the University of Dayton, and graduated in 2005.
After graduation, my wife and I moved to the Upstate, where I began working as an Assistant Solicitor under then Solicitor Trey Gowdy in the Seventh Circuit Solicitor’s Office. During my time as an Assistant Solicitor, I handled hundreds of cases including DUI, Forgery, Burglary, Larceny, Financial Transaction Card Fraud and Theft, Drug Trafficking, Drug Distribution and PWID, Simple Possession, Assault and Battery and Murder.
I became an associate of Burts Turner & Rhodes in January 2012 where I continue practicing criminal law as a criminal defense attorney. However, I have expanded my practice areas to include personal injury, family law, probate, and civil litigation. I have also represented clients in Administrative violations and revocations with various State agencies.
