Biography

After graduating with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law, I was a clerk for the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia, the Honorable Harold G. Clarke. I learned a lot about the law and life working with the late Justice Clarke. I was blessed to have the opportunity to work with someone who is a legend in the legal profession, and I felt like I was working for someone who would go down in history as one of the great leaders in Georgia.

After Justice Clarke retired from the Supreme Court, I went to work with the litigation firm of Drew Eckl & Farnham, LLP representing insurance companies and employers in workers' compensation cases. I worked on hundreds of cases in my two years with Drew Eckl, taking dozens of depositions and trying cases almost immediately. At Drew Eckl I practiced with some of the best in the profession and learned about the passion, dedication, and commitment it takes to practice law. I also learned how insurance companies work and how their adjusters and lawyers think--valuable experience when fighting against insurance companies in court.

After my time with Drew Eckl, I joined Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, PLLC in the Business Litigation section. At Womble Carlyle, I represented a broad variety of clients, including individuals, small and large businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and multinational corporations. My work there gave me experience in a broad variety of litigation such as products liability cases, class actions, eminent domain cases, real estate fraud, commercial collections, contract disputes, business tort claims, and many others. Working with some of the best lawyers in the profession for that time taught me a great deal about the practice of law, efficient case management, and advocacy of the clients' interests.

Since 2003 I have been running my own litigation firm focused on representing individuals and small businesses in and out of court.
