About me

I am an attorney in Adel, Georgia, a small town in South Georgia where I was born and raised. I have been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 2008. I am currently a partner in Bennett and Connell, LLC, and have been since 2009. My primary focus in my practice is real estate transactions and defense of individuals charged with a crime, including traffic citations. I keep my practice areas narrow so that I can be proficient, effective, and responsive to my clients. I have handled numerous criminal defense cases at the trial court level and on appeal and have been doing so my entire career.


If you are facing felony or misdemeanor charges in any of the following Georgia Superior and State Courts: Cook, Berrien, Irwin, Worth, Lowndes, Colquitt, Tift; consider calling me or making an appointment for a free consultation in person or via telephone.


I also have several years experience on both sides of traffic courts throughout Georgia. Call my office in reference to traffic tickets in the following Georgia towns: Adel, Hahira, Lenox, Sparks, Tifton, Valdosta, and Nashville.
