I'm originally from Buchanan County, Virginia. I graduated from King University in 1994, and from Wake Forest University School of Law in 1997. I started practicing in Raleigh in 1997, and worked for insurance companies for three years. In 2000, I changed sides to represent injury people and have done that ever since. I have tried cases across North Carolina, and have represented thousands of personal injury clients across the southeastern United States, Canada, and Central America. I opened my own firm in April 2000, after practicing with some of the largest personal injury firms in North Carolina for years. I hold an "AV" rating with the Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating system, and have been chosen as a member of "Super Lawyers" for the last ten years.
