I was born in the United Kingdom, raised in Nigeria and emigrated to the United States on September 3, 1984. I have made the Unired States my forever home since then. I am a United States citizen and living out my dream to practice law and represent the under-represented in this country. I love what I do and have no problem litigating and trying cases. I love challenges and look forward to more. I have tried cases in both federal and state courts in North Carolina.
