About me

I am the managing partner of a small Raleigh civil litigation law firm. Our firm represents businesses in various contract disputes as well as individual plaintiffs in injury, unfair debt collection (FDCPA, FCRA, and TCPA), and unpad wages and overtime lawsuits. 


I started my firm after moving from Washington D.C. in 2009, where I had practiced since I graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law.


I live in Wake Forest with my wife Diane and children Emma and Luke.

    Ed is an excellent attorney. I had the good fortune of working with him when he was starting his own law practice and while I was in North Carolina running a retail business. I am very glad to see that he appears to be doing very well - and as it ought to be, because he is an excellent attorney, and an exceptionally good person to boot.
