About Me

I am a trial lawyer that represents people who have been seriously injured or killed in car accidents, tractor-trailer wrecks, construction accidents, and slip/trip and falls.  In 2012 alone, my firm obtained more than $4 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients.  


 


I have been selected as a Georgia SuperLawyers Rising Star in 2012 and 2013.  Only 2.5% of the lawyers in Georgia are chosen for this honor. 


 


Before I began representing people and families, I worked at one of Atlanta's largest law firms defending insurance companies and corporations in personal injury and wrongful death cases.  I learned how insurance companies and defense lawyers defend and value these cases and now use this experience in prosecuting my clients' cases.  


 


I have offices in Atlanta and Athens and handle cases all over the state of Georgia. Please call for a free consultation about your case.
