Biography

Longtime member of the Tennessee Bar, having practiced law in 65 of the 95 Counties in Tennessee. I am known for my expertise in Deeds, Titles and Boundary Disputes. In most Criminal matters prior to Trial, I conduct demanding Preliminary Hearings and present numerous Defenses including Motions To Suppress Evidence, and Discovery of the State's Witnesses and Evidence. Statutes of Limitations are always examined. And in Probate matters, Court Administration or not is carefully examined prior to filing such. If Probate can be avoided, then other Title authorities and Property Transfer methods are pursued.

I am admitted to, and have actually practiced before, the Tennessee Supreme Court, Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals, Tennessee Court of Appeals, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee and the United States Tax Court.

Unlike most attorneys and title companies, I am capable of drafting precise Deeds and Easements with new Legal Descriptions from one or more Survey plats, with comprehensive Derivation of Title clauses and Habendum clauses. And my Practice often involves Title Searches, Boundary Line Disputes, Deeds of any type, and Quiet Title Actions. My Estate Planning Practice includes Wills, Future Interest Conveyances, Trusts, and Probate Administration. Additionally I prosecute Will Contests, Foreclosures, and Land Partition Suits. In Criminal Cases, my Clients do not hire me just to plead them Guilty to the original charges.

I am a Retired Field Artillery Officer with the TNARNG and USA. I executed Fire Missions with Cannons, MLRS Rockets & ATACMS Missiles. As a Targeting Officer, I directed the employment of Q-37 and Q-36 Weapon Locating Radars. And I was a Nuclear Weapon Officer for 155 mm and 8 inch Artillery in the 2nd Armored Division. As a QRF .50 BMG gunner in the Iraq War, I was awarded the Combat Action Badge.

Q. My question is how can i fix and hold acountable for a fraud that my stepdad committed and filed with the Bexar County.
A: Initially you need to hire a TX attorney to search that title. Just looking on the internet is only a start. If you are going to file suit to set aside fraudulent encumbrances, then you will need to know the title and the liens verbatim. If actual forged instruments were recorded, then a possible Federal Wire Fraud charge exists.
Q. What can I do if someone owes me 500 dollars and they told me that they would pay me through an email but now refuse to?
A: Defendant can claim the Statute of Frauds unless there is a writing, even a cashed check. General Sessions suit will cost about a third of your prospective judgment. If you get a judgment by default including costs, you will still have to work to collect it.
Q. If a wife is not listed on a bank account and the benifiary on the account is the daughter, can the wife remove funds
A: If the Daughter is a joint holder or a payable on death name on the signature card, then the deposited funds are owned by the Daughter. Wife should have no authority to remove money. Bank could be sued for such a conversion.
