About Me

Licensed in 1998, I began my legal career as General Counsel for a growing software company called Transcender Corporation. In 2000, I opened my first law practice in Nashville, TN handling mostly criminal matters in both state and federal court. By 2003, my practice was handling mostly personal injury cases and some corporate work. I relocated my practice to Memphis, TN in 2010 and handle mostly personal injury cases including auto accidents and slip and fall cases. I also have some corporate clients. I have tried over 30 criminal cases before a jury and over 20 civil cases before a jury. I am a diligent advocate for all my clients. I also represent attorneys and judges before the Board of Professional Responsibility.
