I am from a family of entrepreneurs. Building a business is in my blood. After graduating with a double majors in Economics and Politics from Washington and Lee University. I went on to receive my law degree from Cumberland School of Law. I am also one of the few attorneys in Birmingham with an M.B.A., which I received from the Brock School of Business at Samford University where I focused on entrepreneurship.
My enthusiasm for entrepreneurship motivated me to open The Watson Firm. I firmly believe that entrepreneurs will be the ones to take this country to new heights in the next decades. So I decided to prove my commitment to entrepreneurship, and I started my own business.
In my practice, I focus on counseling entrepreneurs on their businesses, getting their business started, helping them solve their problems, monetizing their tangible and intangible assets, and fighting for them inside and outside of the courtroom.
