About Me

I was born and raised in Macon, Georgia. I graduated from Georgia State University College of Law in 2002. During law school, I was an active member of both the Moot Court Board, serving as Vice President of Appellate Advocacy, and the Student Trial Lawyers Association. I received special recognition for my performance in Research, Writing and Advocacy and Litigation classes.

Since graduating from law school, I have devoted my career to helping people in need against the powerful interests of the government, large corporations and insurance companies. I have been lead counsel in over a dozen jury trials, have written and argued dozens of successful pre-trial motions and have successfully assisted over a thousand individuals obtain their Social Security disability benefits.

I have been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2002 and am licensed to practice in the Georgia Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court of Georgia and the United States Northern District Court. I am a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives, the Atlanta Bar Association and the Dekalb Bar Association.

    I've had the pleasure of working on a number of cases with David over the years. He has an unusual combination of professional skill and genuine concern about the outcomes of his cases for his clients. I would recommend him to my family if they needed a Social Security attorney.
