About me

I graduated from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 2000.  After briefly working in Memphis, TN I moved to Winter Park, FL in 2001.  I am proud to call Central Florida home for myself, wife, Elizabeth, and son, James.  For the past 13 years I have practiced exclusively in the area of civil litigation.  My experience is broad having represented businesses both small and national, divorce clients, landlords and tenants, consumer debtors and creditors.  This experience has taught me that the average person is too often priced out of effective legal representation. You should not have to go into massive debt to get the help you need.
