About Me

I am a native North Carolinian who has lived across the state from Charlotte to New Bern. From an early age, I have always been driven by intellectual curiosity and the desire to help others. Together these two instincts guided me to the practice of law. 

Learning about clients’ prospective legal issues, identifying and recommending solutions, and executing those solutions makes me excited to go to work every day. Whenever possible, I help anticipate and avoid legal problems before they arise. If a dispute cannot be avoided, I embrace the opportunity to build a compelling case and advocate justice for my clients in the courtroom.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy attending the performing arts, playing racquet sports, sharing a meal with friends, and traveling with my wife.
