About me

I am a mountain boy, with simple, straight forward values. I love what I do, and love to help people through some of the toughest moments anyone will ever face. With four children, a 26 year marriage, work experience beginning at 12, the heritage of two farming families from rural North Carolina -- I can relate to most people and their problems. Our firm handles most areas of the law that folks will need in daily life, and can refer you to someone excellent for things we do not handle.
