About Me

I am client focused and strive to get the best results possible for all of my clients, be it through negotiating a settlement with opposing counsel, mediation or when appropriate in a courtroom.


 


I have tried numerous contested custody cases and have an extremely high success rate.  When a client retains me in a contested custody case I am very frank with them in letting them know up front that I take the custody of their children very seriously and will not represent them it they are merely using the threat of custody to secure a more favorable financial settlement from their spouse.


 


I feel it is very important for the client and the lawyer to have a close working relationship.  My clients always receive my cell phone number and are welcomed to call me on my cell phone.  In the office I answer my own phone as I feel that adds a personal touch to someone that is going through a very difficult time in their life.  I have been through this process myself and understand the client from their perspective as well as that of their attorney.


 


I think it is important for the client and lawyer to have a good working relationship so that their is mutual trust.  I will always work for what is in my client's best interest and expect and demand that my clients are always truthfull with me.  I do not want to hear a fact about my client for the first time when they are on the witness stand being cross examined by opposing counsel.  It is much easier to deal with prior bad conduct by a client if I know about it before opposing counsel.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Review Panel Reprimand
    issued in GA, 1998

    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the pubic in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
