I am a lifelong North Carolina native. I grew up in Raleigh and moved to Wilmington after law school. My practice is centered around the trial of Criminal and Personal Injury cases throughout the State of North Carolina and in Federal Courts throughout the country.
I am experienced in State and Federal Criminal Defense. I represent clients on cases ranging from routine traffic matters and DWI to Serious Felonies.
I also represent persons injured in serious accidents as well as families of people who are killed by the negligence of others.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

Suspension stayed means the attorney has been disciplined, but that the discipline is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements.

Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the North Carolina State Bar to understand the reasons for disbarment.
