About me

I was born and raised in Henry County, Georgia.  I attended UGA for both business school and law school, graduating in 1984.  I started practicing in 1984 at the McDonough firm of Smith, Welch & Meadows.  I then practiced in-house with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company for 20 years doing insurance defense work for auto and trucking cases and workers' comp cases.  I opened my own firm in 1997 to represent plaintiffs and claimants.  I no longer represent insurance companies at all.  I am married with two boys, ages 12 and 15.  I enjoy riding dirt motorcycles when time allows and attending my sons' events at school.
