About Me

I have been involved with public speaking on some level from a young age, and graduated from Vanderbilt University with a major in Communications. I have applied this skill in my legal studies through appellate courses and competitions. As an oral advocate, I have received numerous scholastic, regional, and national awards.

I am a Birmingham, Alabama tax attorney at Meadows & Howell, LLC. While the focus of the firm is primarily tax law, we have a diverse practice that enables us to provide a broad range of legal services. Our services cover a variety of legal financial services related to tax law, including business law, estate planning and asset protection.
