Before entering the practice of law, I was a teacher and coach, teaching health, physical education, history, and science. I primarily coached basketball and football, but also spent time coaching volleyball, baseball, soccer, track and field, and cross-country. In 2009 I coached a nine year old football team in Suwanee, Georgia and in 2010 coached a fourteen year old basketball team in Lawrenceville, Georgia. I was also head coach of an eleven year old football team in Suwanee, Georgia in 2011.
I hold a black belt teaching certificate in the art of Chinese Boxing and practice Tai-Chi, Wing-Chun and other arts of self-defense and self-actualization. I also play in a weekly basketball league, play beach volleyball in the summertime, and enjoy a variety of other activities, including swing dancing, hiking, mountain biking, waterskiing, and snowskiing. I attend a community Christian church and believe that most of the problems of mankind ultimately have a spiritual root cause and need a spiritual solution.
My first two years out of law school were spent working for a small firm that handled personal injury, family law, business law, and general practice and trial. For the next eight years I worked for larger firms as a real estate closing attorney and a foreclosure attorney.
In 2007, I opened my own law firm, with a goal of helping people with their everyday problems. Since that time, I have handled hundreds of cases in the Gwinnett County, metro Atlanta, and North Georgia courts encompassing several areas in the practice of law, with a focus on criminal defense and personal injury.
