About me

I completed  my undergraduate degree at North Georgia College and State University, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.  Subsequently I joined the United States Army and served proudly as a Paratrooper with the XVIII Airborne Corps, at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.  After being honorably discharged, I obtained my law degree at the John Marshall School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia and went on to serve as a prosecutor, gaining invaluable prosecutorial and trial experience.  It was while serving as a prosecutor that I saw the need for people who had been accused of a crime to have access to thorough and zealous legal representation on their behalf.  In addition to my duties as a defense attorney, I also serve as the Chief Judge in the City of Milton and Roswell Municipal Courts.  I represent clients in all criminal matters, including DUI, BUI, Domestic Violence, Drug Offenses, Traffic, Juvenile, White Collar, Theft, Arrest Warrant Applications and Defense, TPO Defense, and others.
