About me

I have been in the entrepreneurial business world for most of my life, with an early introduction working alongside my parents in their small graphic communications business. After graduating from law school in 1984, I took over management of the company, and over the next 20 years was fortunate to work with an extraordinary team of friends and colleagues in building a nationally recognized, innovative industry leader, growing revenues 100-fold during that time. Upon the sale of the company, I began working with a select group of business owners to help them strengthen their organization’s leadership structure, build solid, actionable business plans, navigate family business issues and orchestrate orderly management and ownership successions. I provide mediation and counsel for corporate and business matters including contract disputes, employment issues, partnerships and dissolution, family business issues, mergers and acquisitions.


I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia, residing in Marietta since childhood. My wife and I have two grown children, and we split time between houses and offices in Marietta and St. Simons Island, Georgia.
