About me

I have always had a passion for helping those in need.  When I graduated from Duke Law School, I had the opportunity to work for the big law firms that represent some of the largest companies in the world.  However, my heart was always in helping individuals, the underdogs. 

After clerking for a federal judge, I came back home, to South Georgia, where I began working for clients who were injured or lost family members due to the fault of others.

As your lawyer, I promise that I will be compassionate to your situation.  If you have lost a loved one or have been injured yourself, you deserve a laywer who will give you and your case the time and attention necessary for a successful outcome.

In the community, I am a member of Christ the King Episcopal Church.  I served on the Valdosta Historical Preservation Commission.  In my spare time, I love to spend time with my wife, Martha, our son, Jude, and our two dogs, Lucy and Big Dan.
