Originally from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, I am a proud graduate of Georgia State University College of Law, having received my undergraduate degree in chemistry from Auburn University.  Having worked for 8 years before returning to law school, I have something most other attorney’s do not have in this day and age:  real world work experience.  I have worked in grocery stores, laboratories, and on the factory floor.  I understand what it is like to live paycheck to paycheck and have to work for what you have.

After graduating from Auburn University, I worked for a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) certified toxicology lab.  This provided me experience with the same testing techniques used by experts to test for everything from illegal drugs to chemical contamination.  After running thousands of tests, I left this position to work in the engineering department with a large carpet and textile manufacturer in LaGrange, Georgia.  Here, I worked with people from all different walks of life and learned to communicate with people at all levels.  I stayed with this company for over 7 years before being inspired to return to law school.

Upon graduating from Georgia State University College of Law with honors, I immediately began working in the Carroll County District Attorney’s office.  I quickly began preparing cases for the grand jury, learning how charges have to be structured to ensure they will hold up in court.  I conducted hearings and had my first jury trial just a few weeks later.  For the next 6 years, I would be in court multiple days per week and prosecute numerous felony cases including murder, armed robbery, drug trafficking, and domestic violence.  I have also practiced in probate court handling DUI’s, speeding tickets, and hunting violations.  However, most criminal or divorce cases do not end up in trial, most are handled in other ways.  Having negotiated thousands of cases, I have the experience to deal with opposing counsel and work to get my client the best settlement to their case.

I started my own law practice to help people through the increasingly difficult and complex legal process.  From criminal charges to divorce proceedings, when someone is involved with the court system they need an attorney who will work hard for them in or out of the courtroom.  With dedication to clients, the ability to communicate in a way everyone can understand, and real world working experience, I can help you when you need it the most.

If you need an attorney that will represent you and be available to you when you need them, please contact me today to schedule your free consultation.
