About me

DWI & CRIMINAL DEFENSE "From Stop Signs to Murder"

Criminal and traffic cases can be more complex than they seem, and if you are in the hands of an inexperienced attorney who does not know what he or she is doing, you can end up with awful results. You don't have to worry about that with me. I've been practicing in Charlotte for over 30 years. My practice is focused entirely on traffic violations, misdemeanors, and felony charges. Some attorneys try to practice in several areas of the law, but I concentrate on one area only so that I can maintain the highest level of expertise in my field.


If you are interested a little background about me, I am a North Carolina native. I attended Charlotte Country Day, and then Duke University, where I was proudly the mascot for the Blue Devils. I received a scholarship to attend law school at Mercer University in Georgia. I have two wonderful kids and am extremely active in their school and sports activities, both as a volunteer for the schools and as a softball/baseball coach for many years.
