About me

Born and raised in Barnwell, South Carolina, I was taught the importance of diligence, competency and persistence.  I am not a native Charlestonian, but I got here as quickly as I could, arriving in 1995.  Charleston has been good to me.  I met my wife here, started my law firm here, and we are raising our daughters here.  I cannot imagine a better place to live than in Charleston!  I enjoy my involvements with Ashley River Baptist Church, the Rotary Club of St. Andrews and the Sons of the American Revolution.
