About me

I focus my practice on commercial litigation, premises liability, product liability, personal injury, wrongful death, professional malpractice and general insurance defense and coverage. I also conduct client training on premises liability issues and have assisted in the development and implementation of internal policies and procedures.

I am admitted to practice in all Georgia state and appellate courts, the Northern District of Georgia and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. I am also a member of the State Bar of Georgia, Atlanta Bar Association, American Bar Association and the Atlanta Claims Association.
