Claimed Lawyer Profile

I graduated from Wake Forest University in 1982 and from Campbell University School of Law in 1987. I was admitted to the North Carolina State Bar in 1987 and began my legal career as an associate with Lee & Lee Attorneys at Law in my hometown where I worked until January 1989 when I accepted a position with the Robeson County District Attorney’s Office as an assistant prosecutor. In May 1993, I accepted a position in the Bladen, Brunswick and Columbus County’s District Attorney’s Office where I was responsible for felony prosecutions and management of superior court in Bladen and Columbus Counties.

In 1994 I was elected to be Robeson County’s District Attorney and was sworn into office on November 1, 1994 after winning the May Democratic primary election and did not face opposition in the 1994 General Election. I ran unopposed in the next five (5) elections. On January 1,2019 I retired as District Attorney after thirty (30) years of service to the State of North Carolina. During my career as District Attorney, I tried nearly every major murder case in Robeson County including the murder of James Raymond Jordan, the father of basketball icon Michael Jordan.

Knowing I would return one day to the practice of law, I opened my office in July 2019 and predominantly practice criminal law, focusing on adult and juvenile felony cases in both court appointed cases as well as privately retained cases. I am also approved by the North Carolina Capital Defender to be appointed as counsel in indigent first degree murder cases.

In 2018, I was awarded the Order of the Long Leaf Pine by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and the Friend of the Court by then North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Martin for my service and contribution to the State and the Judicial Branch of North Carolina. In addition to these awards, I have served as a Commissioner to North Carolina’s Criminal Justice Education,Training and Standards Commission and the Innocence Commission.
