Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am an attorney in Gastonia, NC, practicing family law, personal injury. I also handle will preparation and traffic matters.

Before practicing law, I lived and worked in several different countries. I taught English as a second language in Germany and France. In the United Kingdom, I worked in the personal injury department of a Scottish law firm.

Since I started practicing, I have devoted my energy to trying to efficiently resolve family law cases and to get the best recovery possible in personal injury cases. I became a NCDRC Certified Mediator for Family Financial cases in 2017. Clients often come to lawyers when they are stressed or anxious. I truly enjoy helping clients and my best reward is to bring them relief from whatever legal problem they are facing. Our firm offers a variety of fee options (contingency, hourly, flat) depending on your legal matter. Please call or email me for a consultation.
