Since 2013, my practice has focused on representing people who have suffered catastrophic injuries from defective medical devices, dangerous pharmaceuticals, medical malpractice, automobile crashes and slip and falls. Prior to joining Meyers & Flowers, LLC in February 2013, I worked at a large South Carolina plaintiff’s firm, with a focus on asbestos-related multi-district litigation. I also held an associate role at a small South Carolina personal injury law firm, where I litigated before the Social Security Administration and handled numerous workers’ compensation and personal injury cases.
I went to law school at DePaul University College of Law, where I focused my studies on litigation. There, I received the CALI Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy II, Evidence, Criminal Litigation Strategies, and Criminal Appeals Clinic. I also spent extensive time volunteering, which earned me the Benjamin Hooks Service and Distinguished Public Service Awards.
During law school, I also gained trial and appellate experience while working with the Office of the State Appellate Defender and in the Felony Trial Division of the Cook County Public Defender. At OSAD, I worked as a supervised, certified, senior law student and drafted an appeal to the First District Court of Appeals, sat second chair during oral arguments, and filed the petition for review with the Supreme Court of Illinois. In my time with the Public Defender’s office, I honed my litigation skills by defending individuals accused of serious felony crimes. I served as second chair in approximately twenty jury and bench trials and argued approximately twenty motions.
I am licensed to practice in Illinois and South Carolina jurisdictions and admitted in various federal courts throughout the country. I earned my law degree in 2011 and his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of South Carolina in 2006.
