    About Me

    I studied law at the University of Mississippi. During my time there, I won the Moot Court trial advocacy competition and was selected for Phi Delta Phi academic legal fraternity.  I graduated from law school a semester early. 

    While studying at the University of Mississippi, I was active in theater productions and a featured performer in the University Production of "Vagina Monologues"

    I took the Mississippi and the Tennessee Bar exams in February of 2009.  After passing both of them, I searched for a job in a Public Defender's Office, where I knew I could both help people and best utilize my courtroom skills. Unfortunately, this is when the economy was at its worst, and there was a hiring freeze on all government hiring in both states.  Ultimately I was asked to come to Florida to help my father's friend in Gainesville with a case between two Gatorade stockholders. I performed stand-up comedy in my free time.  I learned that in Florida, if you are licensed and in good standing in another state, you can work as a Public Defender.  I worked with the 7th Circuit Office of the Public Defender for 21/2 years while studying for, and passing,  the Florida Bar. While at the PD's office  I tried many cases (including felonies and misdemeanors)  to successful verdicts and earned a good reputation as a fierce litigator.
