About Me

I have been licensed to practice law for over 26years.  My background includes service in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate Generals Corp, as a prosecoter, service as the Legal Advisor to the Metro Nashville Police Department, and extensive litigation experience with those organizations and in private practice. You will find that I am direct and very truthful with my clients. I often have clients state that they appreciate that I am a "straight shooter". My firm offers courteous, compassionate, honest, aggressive, and affective legal services.


 


My firm is focused on family law (divorces, seperations, adoption, custody) , criminal law, and personal injury law, though we offer and will be happy to discuss with you services in a broad range of other legal areas.
