I am a born and raised fourth generation Nashvillian. After graduating from Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, I attended college at The University of the South. I then returned home to attend law school at Vanderbilt University.
When I was in elementary school, my family went through some very difficult financial and legal matters. I did not undersatnd everything that was going on, but I did know that when the lawyers called, things tended to calm down. As a result, I see my job as a lawyer as helping to bring calm and direction to what feels like chaotic, scary situations to my clients.
Since graduating from law school, I have specifically focused my practice on helping injury victims and their families. I enjoy getting to know my clients and walking alongside them through the difficulties that injuries present for them from physical pain, to emotional stress and the financial difficulties that come along with it.
At the end of the day, I want my clients to think of me not just as their lawyer, but as their friend and a member of their extended family. To me, practicing law is all about the relationships I am able to build with the people I have a chance to help.
