About Me

Graduated with honors from Harvard Law School after attending the University of Tennessee on a full basketball scholarship. Graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA from UT while a starter and co-captain on the Vols basketball team.

Clerked for a federal appellate court judge before working as counsel to the United States Senate Governmental Affairs Committee before coming back home to Tennessee to begin the private practice of law. I currently work at Wiseman Bray PLLC where I practice in the areas of commercial and construction litigation and lien disputes, business disputes, products liability, personal injury, auto accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death, general litigation, and government relations/public policy.
