About me

I handle most types of serious personal injury cases throughout North Carolina, but I am also licensed in Florida, where I continue to handle select cases. I hold two board certifications as a civil trial expert: one by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and one by the Florida Bar. I have obtained an "AV Preeminent" rating from confidential reviews by my peers and judges. This is the highest rating a lawyer can have under the Martindale-Hubbell rating system and it is based on a lawyer's proven legal ability and ethics.

I am an "av" rated lawyer with 33 years;' experience in the litigation & trial of injury matters, representing the insured defendants of most every major insurer & victim plaintiffs.

    I know Mike from his days at the State Attorney's Office, and I have always known him to be a hardworking, thorough, and diligent attorney. He is a fierce opponent in the courtroom, but this is tempered with a charismatic personality. I highly endorse Mike.
