About me

My practice is limited to
primarily matters before the Chancery Courts in Mississippi. Such cases would include family law matters, adoptiondivorce, both contested
and irreconcilable
(alimony), QDRO -
Qualified Domestic Relation Order
, guardianship, paternitychild custody, child
support, child visitation, grandparents rightsmodification, and court
appointed Guardian ad Litem.


My mission
is to provide quality legal advice and services to the residents of north
Mississippi. While I am willing to practice before any Chancery Court in the
state, I generally practice before the First, Third, and Eighteenth Chancery
Court Districts.


My primary concentration is on meeting the legal needs of
individuals and families.  Family Law deals with especially sensitive
issues that can have life-long emotional and financial effects. I encourage you
to ask questions and discuss options before making a decision. I accept cases
anywhere from simple irreconcilable divorces to high conflict child custody
issues and high asset and complex divorce actions.  I may not tell you what you want to hear, but I will tell you what you need to hear.
