Greetings! I am an attorney who was born and raised in Charlotte, and I have lived in the great state of North Carolina my entire life. I had the good fortune to learn from brilliant teachers and peers in law school, but I have been learning how to be a lawyer for much longer thanks to my father, who has practiced law for over 30 years. Now we practice together, specializing in adoption law, homeowners associations, and wills. If you have needs in those areas, we would love to be of service to you!

Our small firm gives clients the benefit of decades of experience, extensive legal resources, and personalized attention. When you step into our office as my client, you can expect that I will listen closely to you and give you honest answers. I will try to advise you of the best solution for your situation, even if that solution is not a legal one.

When I am not in the office, you can probably find me playing a sport (nothing involving skates), watching a movie, hiking, or enjoying the company of friends and family.
