About me

I am a practicing attorney devoted to assisting people with difficult legal problems particularly those involving alcohol and drug use.  As a former assistant district attorney, I learned the ins and outs of criminal practice and criminal procedure.

I enjoy meeting new people even under difficult circumstances and make every effort to leave those I work with better off both legally and personally.

I have been married to Catherine Ann Thomas of Columbia, South Carolina for over 20 years and we have lived in Atlanta, Georgia for most of that time.  We have three children, Tommy, Margaret, and Anna. 

The family enjoys historical reenacting, theater, reading and watching each other play soccer.


If I can be of assistance regarding any of your legal needs please let me know.
