About me

I have been an attorney for over 15 years. The majority of my experience was as a prosecutor in several counties in the metro Atlanta area. As a defense attorney, my prosecutorial experience and network gives me an advantage to defending cases. I have extensive trial experience dealing with misdemeanors and felony cases. I have also taught for the past six years at local colleges in their Criminal Justice degree programs.
