About me

I'm a lifelong Georgia resident and have lived in Savannah, Marietta, Carrollton, Atlanta, and, for the last 16 years, Athens. I'm married and the father of 3 children, which gives me perspective on life and my clients' cases. Injuries can dramatically affect the whole family. I think you will find that I am direct, candid, responsive, and hard working.  I enjoy jury trials, even though most cases resolve without one.  As an experienced trial attorney, I am able to help clients get the money they deserve.
