About me

I am an attorney located in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.  I have my B.A. in Classics from the New College of Florida, and my J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School.  I have a varied legal background, including stints at the ICTY in the Netherlands with the Office of the Prosecutor and with the State of Tennessee.  


 


I enjoy family and employment law and feel blessed that I have managed to find a career where I feel like I am making a difference by enforcing the rights of employees, parents, and protecting children.  My favorite practice area is wage and hour (FLSA) cases because one of the most fundamental rights of an employee is to be paid for the work they have done to enrich the employer.


 


I love sports and I am a big University of Louisville, Vanderbilt, Titans, and Nashville Predators fan.  I have Vandy football season tickets, so look for us in Vandyville!
