I come from a farming family in rural Eastern North Carolina.  My family instilled in me the values that I use every day in the practice of law: treat people with respect, be honest and do the absolute best you can at whatever you do.  I take a genuine interest in my clients.  I am a firm believer that you must have a keen understanding of the client’s business, goals and objectives in order to provide effective counsel.

If I am not working, you will most likely find me spending time with my wife and two children, feebly attempting to play golf or cheering on the Wolfpack.
