About Me

As a trial attorney, I have limited my practice exclusively to the areas of divorce and domestic relations law, and focus my energy on the pursuit of superior results for my clients. In the emotionally charged atmosphere peculiar to divorce and domestic relations law it is frequently necessary to prepare for war in the courtroom, while simultaneously pursuing opportunities to reach settlement.


Sometimes, however, settlement is not possible and it is necessary to go to trial, where I have a proven record before both judge and jury.  In addition, I have successfully tried complex and high asset divorce cases and have substantial experience litigating issues related to the division of retirement and pension plans. My record of success extends to the Georgia Supreme Court and Georgia Court of Appeals, where I have effectively advocated for my clients, and have compiled an impressive succes rate.  


I am a member of the Family Law and Appellate Sections and Younger Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia; the Family Law Section of the Cobb County Bar Association. I am also a member of the T.C. Williams School of Law and Emory University Alumni Associations and attends Hillside United Methodist Church of Woodstock, Georgia.  Aside from my law practice, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, as well as volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America.
