Summary

Longtime member of the Tennessee Bar, with extensive Jury Trial experience. I am widely known for my expertise in Deeds,Titles and Boundary Disputes. In most Criminal matters prior to Trial, I conduct demanding Preliminary Hearings and present numerous Defenses including Motions To Suppress Evidence, Discovery against the State's Witnesses and Evidence, and Bar Prosecution As Violative of the Statute of Limitations. And in Probate matters, Court Administration or not is carefully examined prior to filing such. If Probate can be avoided, then other Title authorities and Property Transfer methods are pursued.

I am admitted to, and have actually practiced before, the Tennessee Supreme Court, Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals, Tennessee Court of Appeals, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee and the United States Tax Court.

Unlike most attorneys and title companies, I am capable of drafting precise Deeds and Easements with new Legal Descriptions from one or more Survey plats, with comprehensive Derivation of Title clauses and Habendum clauses. And my Practice often involves Title Searches, Boundary Line Disputes, Deeds of any type, and Quiet Title Actions. My Estate Planning Practice includes Wills, Future Interest Conveyances, Trusts, and Probate Administration. Additionally I prosecute Will Contests and Land Partition Suits. In Criminal Defense Cases, my Clients do not hire me just to plead them Guilty to the original charges.

I am a Retired Field Artillery Officer with the TNARNG and USA. I executed Fire Missions with Cannons, MLRS Rockets or ATACM Missiles. As a Targeting Officer, I directed the employment of Q-37 and Q-36 Weapon Locating Radars. And I was a Nuclear Weapon Officer for 155 mm and 8 inch Artillery in the 2nd Armored Division. For my services in the Iraq War, I was awarded the Combat Action Badge.
