I was born at Womack Army Hospital on Fort Bragg in Fayetteville NC after my father returned from his second tour of combat in Vietnam. My mother was a waitress at a bus stop when they met and married. They lived their lives together working hard to build a family and taking care of each other and us children. I was no senator’s son. When I turned 18, I enlisted in the Army and fought for the United States of America in Iraq during the first Gulf War and later in Afghanistan after September 11. Now I fight for injured North Carolinians.

My military service included serving with Military Intelligence and Special Forces protecting Americans from the bad guys. I loved my job and believed in our great United States of America. The Army made me tough and that’s what helped me build a law firm, from the ground up, dedicated to protecting real people from the insurance companies and making sure my clients are treated well and compensated. I strive to always be prepared and I fight for the freedom of the oppressed. De Oppresso Liber!

My son followed in my footsteps of service and served as a US Marine. Jacob was a Betio Bastard (this is a Marine Corps Battalion – not swearing) and I couldn’t be prouder. Semper Fi!

After leaving the military I went back to law school and wrote onto law review, participated in moot court and volunteered in legal clinics helping North Carolina citizens. Since graduation, I have practiced in most of our state and federal courts. I am licensed to practice in all of the North Carolina State and Federal Courts as well as in the United States Supreme Court. My passion is to make sure that regular people have excellent legal representation. I don’t apologize for being as tough as necessary or fighting for my client’s rights. I don’t back down. I fight.

I was the first member of my family to graduate from college and law school. When I was admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, Supreme Court Justice Roberts signed a bible and dedicated it to my beloved mother, Annamae. My mother carried that bible with her everywhere she went!

I respect my law partner, Season Atkinson, my wife Ann Tatum who works in the firm and my staff and team and demand excellence from them all. Our law firm has many five-star reviews because we go above and beyond for our clients.

If you need excellent legal representation, call us and we will do all we can to help you.
