About me

Originally from South Carolina, I graduated from Winthrop University in 1998 with a degree in History.  After getting married, I enrolled at the Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, AL where I served as the Associate Editor of the Law Review and the Chief Justice of the Honor Court.  After graduating from Law School in 2002, my wife and I moved to our current home in Woodstock, GA.   

I spent the last 7 years of my career representing insurance companies, and their insureds, in personal injury lawsuits.  During that time I handled thousands of cases, taking several of them to trial with outstanding results.  I now use that experience to represent individuals who have been injured by the negligence of others to maximize their recovery from the insurance companies.
