Claimed Lawyer ProfileLII GoldSocial Media

I practice primarily Divorce and Custody law throughout East Tennessee. This field allows me to make a real difference in the outcome of a client on a daily basis.

I give direct and realistic advice to each client based on their personal scenario and work very hard to ensure that each maximizes the circumstance they find themselves facing.

My attorneys and staff work as a team to tackle your issue. I help each client develop specific understanding of their legal issue to provide the knowledge to make an informed decision.

I am a native Tennessean and proud Graduate of Lee University and The University of Tennessee Law School. I was very fortunate to be mentored by great women and men throughout my life and strive to guide my clients in that same caring way.
