I was admitted to the Alabama State Bar in 1986, after graduating from Cumberland Law School in Birmingham, Alabama, that same year. Prior to attending law school, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing, and was licensed and worked as a Registered Nurse in Alabama, Colorado, and California. After completing law school, I began the practice of law with a small firm in Andalusia, Alabama, where I hoped to put my knowledge of medicine to use as a trial lawyer. I was extremely fortunate to work for and learn from one of the pioneers in Alabama personal injury law, Frank Tipler. During this time, my practice included cases involving medical malpractice, products liability, motor vehicle accidents, and worker’s compensation.
I am currently is admitted to practice in all State Courts in Alabama, the Federal Courts for the Northern, and Middle Districts of Alabama, the Northern District of Florida, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
