About me

I am a second generation lawyer.  My father is 78 and he still practices 4 days a week in Birmingham, Alabama.


I am also married and the proud father of two young children.


I live by two simple philosophies: (1) treat people fairly and honestly, and (2) help those in need.


I don't Twitter, but I am on Facebook, Myspace and LinkdIn.
