A native of Newport, North Carolina, I have served the people of Carteret & Craven Counties, North Carolina in my law practice and in community and civic affairs.
My practice is based on the philosophy of helping people accomplish their goals, often in times of great personal need or in the midst of unfortunate circumstances. I try to be "results-oriented" with clients, while at the same time being available to discuss the issues that are important to them.
I am proud to be a Rotarian. Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
I use Rotary International's "4 Way Test" as a benchmark for action: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
I believe that leadership is key in any endeavor. I am an active speaker in Leadership Institutes and Rotary International events across the Southeast United States. I helped develop and edit leadership course materials used worldwide by The Rotary Leadership Institute.
"World Peace" is not the answer to a beauty pageant question. It is a goal that serious and dedicated people are working toward every day. But, it is composed of individuals making intentional and compassionate decisions each day in their own communities. I do this as a lawyer and as a civic volunteer.
