About me

I am 60 years old and have been practicing law in Georgia since 1981. I am married with three adult children and three grandchildren. I went to Hapeville High School and graduated from College Park High School. I have a B.B.A. from Georgia State University. After college I spent time in the Army and then decided to go to law school. I received my Juris Doctor degree from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University in Macon in 1981. I lived and worked in Hapeville for several years and we then moved south to Lake Jackson which is about half way between Jackson and Monticello. I practice family law, wills and trust and personal injury law throughout the metro area. I maintain offices in Monticello and Forest Park. My Forest Park office is located in an apartment complex that I own in order to reduce overhead  and keep your fees lower.Contact me for a free consultation.
