About me

I am a praciticing lawyer in Hernando, Mississippi.  I opened my current law firm with my partner, Mike Graves, in 2009, after practicing together for several years prior to that.  We specialize in handling commercial matters ranging from debt collection, creditor's rights, and bankrutpcy to zoning and land use issues.  We also handle a wide variety of other litigation issues from personal injury matters to divorce and family law to probate of estates.  We pride ourselves on a client centric practice with the goal of ensuring every client we have is treated in an honest and fair manner. 


As for mer personally, I am married and the proud father of one child.  I participate in many civic activities such as the Hernando Main Street Chamber of Commerce, Wills for Heroes, the University of Mississippi Indigent & Pro Bono Clinic, and many other activities as well.  I am a member of St. Timothy's Church in Southaven, Mississippi.


If you have a case which requires the expertise of a quality lawyer, please consider our firm as one of your options.  We will be glad to sit down and discuss your options and determine the best course of action for you.
