About me

I am an experienced trial attorney in the Charlottesville, Virginia office of Allen & Allen. Focusing my practice on personal injury and medical malpractice, I have handled cases involving car accidents, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.


I grew up in Buena Vista, Virginia. After earning my undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University, I went on to earn my J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law.


I have published on topics related to litigation in wrongful death cases and trial procedure and regularly speak on litigation topics.
