Summary

I grew up in Helena, Arkansas, attended the William H. Bowen School of Law in Little Rock and trained with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy. My practice includes family law and criminal defense. I am a qualified Domestic Relations Attorney ad Litem.

Before entering private practice, I was as a software developer, Chief Privacy & Security Officer, and in-house counsel. I leverage this technical expertise and experience to provide critical legal and technical skill as the impact of digital information and evidence expand in criminal prosecution and domestic relations.

Technology for Good. How To Impact Non-Profits with WordPress, MS-Access and Twilio. , Signal Conference 2016 , San Francisco, California
Twilio, Inc
Non-profits lack money and developers. Client engagement with SMS and IVR can be highly effective, but often cost-prohibitive. How do we bridge the gap? Let’s review live apps using “low-tech” methods like MS-Access, VBA and WordPress to improve efficiency, resource utilization and outcomes for budget-crunched legal clinics, protect at-risk families and help victims of domestic violence. Along the way you’ll learn to build a WordPress Twilio plugin and have fun. Trust me, I’m a lawyer.

Legal Answers
83 Questions Answered

Q. I had a detective ask me to come in to answer some questions about harassment. How much trouble Am I in?
A: Without all of facts, messages, etc. it is not possible to determine. It could be a misdemeanor, it could be a felony. Either way, you are not required to speak with the detective. You should consult an attorney and present more information during the consult. Don't put any additional information online. The attorney will surely tell you not to speak with the detective. I would take that advice.
Q. How does a man with 2 counts of 1st degree sexual abuse get off the registry and what do they have to do
A: Does he live in Arkansas? Was the conviction in Arkansas or out-of-state? Are the charges in the same case or separate cases? If convicted in two separate cases (different case numbers) he is not eligible for removal. If the conviction is an aggravated offense or the offender level is 4, he is not eligible If the convictions are within the same case (same case number) he must live in AR for 15 years prior to filing the petition, it must be 15 years since release from incarceration or 15 years from the START of supervision (parole or probation). He will need a new SOCNA assessment and a hearing. If convicted in Arkansas, the petition is filed in the court of conviction and the hearing is held there. If out-of-state, file in the Arkansas county of residence. He should hire an attorney.
Q. Can I fight a ticket for drug paraphernalia if they messed up my cars model on the ticket? I drive a XLS!
A: No, not just because the model is wrong. There may be other ways to attack the ticket, but that isn't going to make or break it.
