I was born and raised in Owensboro, Kentucky, and after I graduated from law school, I returned to Owensboro in 1991 to practice law. During the last 25 years, I have represented businesses and individuals in numerous civil matters, including personal injury and wrongful death cases, employment matters, business and commercial matters, real estate, estate, litigation and other issues.
I also believe in giving back to my community and the legal profession. I am active in my church and currently serve as legal counsel to the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation and other worthy causes. I also served as President of the Kentucky Bar Association in 2016-2017.
I spend my free time with my family, whether it is going to the kids' sporting events or working in the yard or around the house. I also enjoy Notre Dame football in the fall and University of Kentucky basketball in the winter.
