About Me

As an athlete for 22 years, I recognize the benefits of hard work, proper training and being prepared for the competition. Today, these traits help me achieve winning results for my clients.  

I now practice in a diverse range of law throughout Georgia, and I have appeared as lead trial counsel in 47 Georgia counties. I routinely receive requests to co-counsel with some of Atlanta's best law firms, and I have represented family members of some of the most respected attorneys in the country.  I am proud to say that I have represented more than a few judges and attorneys. 

In 2005, the Georgia Judicial Nominating Commission recommended me to Governor Sonny Perdue as being "Well Qualified" to be a Superior Court Judge in the state.  In 2008, I became a Mediator and Arbitrator with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution, and in 2015 I began hosting the radio show "Ask the Lawyer" now heard in four states.
