Originally, I am from Knoxville, TN.  I graduated from Duke University in Durham with an Undergraduate Degree in Economics in 2003.  I received my law degree from the University Of South Carolina School Of Law at Columbia in 2006 and passed the North Carolina Bar Exam the same year on the first try.  I interned for various criminal defense firms in Wake County during the summers of my law school education.  Upon graduation and passing the NC Bar, I have volunteered at the Wake County Public Defender’s Office, been on the Indigent Court-Appointed List, and also worked for a medium sized firm based in Orange County, NC.  I have had court experience in 11 North Carolina counties including: Wake, Durham, Orange, Alamance, Caswell, Person, Chatham, Warren, Granville, Franklin, and Vance Counties.  In the last two years, I have handled thousands of traffic tickets, and also a good number of criminal legal matters including DWI’s, drug/narcotics charges, larcenies, assaults, domestic violence, and injury to personal property/injury to real property cases.

My Philosophy

My philosophy is simple.  Be honest with the client and everyone else.  When someone calls in asking for legal advice, I will gladly tell them what I know about the law and explain to them as much as I can. I will tell them in my honest opinion just how much trouble he or she really is in.  I will also tell them straight up what the best case result, worst case result, and what a realistic result is.  I do not believe in hiding facts from clients or using ambiguous terms that may mislead prospective clients or clients.

As with all ethical attorneys, I can not guarantee any results as that violates the rules of ethics with the state bar.  If there is a legal question that I do not know, I will freely admit that I do not know the answer to that question.  I will tell that person that he or she may seek another attorney or allow me to research and get to know the question at point.  If a prospective client presents me with a case that I feel is above my skill level or one that is in a county that I do not practice in, I will refer them to another attorney and give them an honest answer that I do not feel comfortable representing him or her on that matter.  As I have always preached, honesty is the best policy.  If one lies and fabricates, he or she may get away with it many times, but all it takes is one incident and his or her credibility is gone.  It is nearly impossible for an attorney who cannot be trusted in court to practice law, plain and simple.
