About me

I am a criminal defense lawyer who has practiced in Georgia for 15 years.  In the past 5 years I have begun specializing in the defense of those accused of shaken baby syndrome and am a member of the innocence network web list which connects all those interested in such defense with experts willing to testify in the relevant areas.  I enjoy boating, writing and painting in my spare time.
