My first priority is achieving positive outcomes for our clients. Sometimes that means fighting things out in court, an arena where my competitive fire shines, but I also have the experience and judgment to navigate a compromise when it makes sense to do so. Whatever the case, I promise that I’ll treat your business and your problems like they’re my own.
North Carolina is and will always be my home. I was born and raised in Greensboro and I’m raising my kids here, so this community means a lot to me. Now I’m in a position where I can help local businesses and individuals solve the complex legal problems they face on a daily basis. It’s a privilege and an honor to do so.
I worked in ESPN’s Stats and Analysis department before practicing law and am always ready to argue about ACC basketball and football. When I’m not working, you can usually find me at home watching sports or playing with my wife Frances, our daughters Grace and Leigh, and our dog Lawson.
