I grew up in Covington County and worked my way through Troy State University graduating with a degree in economics. I worked in a local manufacturing plant for three years and was then accepted to law school at the University of Alabama. I worked my way through law school and then opened my own law practice in Andalusia, AL. I have always possessed a strong work ethic and this is what I will bring to my representation of you.
I specialize in Criminal Defense, Social Security Disability and Personal Injury cases. If you or a loved one has been arrested don’t let someone else choose your lawyer for you. Choose a lawyer that will fight to defend your rights. I can represent you in all criminal cases including possession of marijuana, driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance, theft, robbery, assault, domestic violence, murder and all other felonies and misdemeanors.
Are you hurt, sick or have a mental illness and are unable to work. I will guide you through the social security and disability process to get the benefits you deserve. I am able to handle social security cases and disability claims from start to finish. If you have been denied coverage, let us fight for you.
If you or a loved one has been injured and you believe someone else is at fault, it’s imperative to seek quality, personalized legal counsel. I have over 10 years of personal injury experience. I will work tirelessly on your case, handling every aspect, insuring that you will receive the compensation you deserve.
