About me

A native Augustan, I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, cum laude, in 1978. Next, I entered the Lumpkin School of Law at UGA, where I served as a Senior Staff Member of the Georgia Law Review and wrote articles published by that periodical and the American Business Law Journal. Upon graduating in 1981, I joined the Fulcher firm, and since that time, I have enjoyed a successful and varied practice in the area of civil litigation.


For over thirty years, I have practiced in the state and federal trial courts of eastern Georgia and western South Carolina. I have litigated hundreds of cases in those courts involving a variety of issues, including automobile and trucking accidents, premises liability, product liability, railroad accidents, and professional liability. I have also argued cases before the Georgia Supreme Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and the federal Courts of Appeals for the Fourth and Eleventh Circuits. In 2009 and 2010, I was recognized by Super Lawyers as one of the top area lawyers in the field of Civil Litigation Defense, and I have earned the highest “AV Preeminent” rating from the respected attorney rating service, Martindale Hubbell. I have repeatedly been listed in the Best Lawyers of America.



I’m active in professional and community activities. As a younger lawyer, I was President of the Augusta Young Lawyers Club in 1990. I served for four years on the Executive Committee of the Augusta Bar Association and was President in 2008. I am a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the South Carolina Bar, Defense Research Institute and Georgia Defense Lawyers Association.  I am a Fellow of the Lawyers Foundation of Georgia and the Augusta Bar association. I served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Staff-Parish Relations Committee at my church.
