About me

I have represented injured persons, businesses, large corporations, and insurance carriers in hundreds of workers' compensation claims.  I have handled a number of complex job injury cases, to include: traumatic brain injuries, paraplegia, exposure to hazardous substances, repetitive trauma, and death.  I have also handled a number of Social Security Disability claims usually arising from my clients work-related injuries.  Our firm also handles immigration cases and we have a Spanish speaking paralegal on our staff.


I have been practicing law in Greenville since 1995.  Before that, I was a Captain in the U.S. Army.  I served with the 82d Airborne as a JAG attorney at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.  While in the Army, I completed Airborne and Ranger training.


Outside of practicing law, I currently serve as a Den Leader for Cub Scouts and the Girls Soccer Coach for Hughes Middle School.   I am an active member of Buncombe Street United Methodist Church.  I am married and have 3 children.
