About Me

I practice criminal and domestic law in Metro Atlanta and the surrounding areas, including as far west as Carroll County. I am married to a Shannon Matulis, a Research Associate at Emory University and we have two wonderful children, Abigail Marie, 5, and Noah Lennon, 2. I enjoys running, especially running marathons, reading, and spending time with my family. I am a HUGE University of Tennessee fan and also follow the Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Blackhawks, and Liverpool F.C.
