About Me

I have practiced law in Cobb County since 1996, and my practice also includes all of the counties in the North Metro Atlanta area.  I do my best to represent my clients in a diligent manner, and I do this by providing to them my best advice for their particular situation.  All cases are different, but they generally follow certain themes and trends, and my experience allows me to detect those themes and trends and develop the best approach for a particular client.

I work hard for all of my clients, and I welcome the chance to represent new clients with their particular issues.
