About Me

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, I love my city and have a real desire to help people.


Before becoming an attorney, I was a newspaper reporter for several years.  I won numerous awards by agressively hunting facts, tracking down sources, and telling compelling stories.  I apply those same skills in resolving legal matters and trying cases before juries for my clients.


I am a trial lawyer, a counselor, and a negotiator.  Let me put my skills to work for you.
