About me

Having lived in Georgia my entire life, I feel a strong obligation to ensure our residents and neighbors receive the best legal representation after a life-changing event.  My law partner and father-in-law founded our firm over 36 years ago with the same key principles that guide our practice today -- Honesty, Hard Work, and Determination to Achieve Justice.

We have 3 Georgia offices to serve clients -- Valdosta, Macon, and Nashville, GA.
