Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ALII Gold

As a lawyer and a former judge, I have often seen how good people can get into trouble. When they do, they need a lawyer they can trust and depend on. A lawyer who will listen. A lawyer who knows the law. A lawyer who can explain their different options. I am that lawyer.

I have been a licensed attorney for 28 years of which I was a General Sessions judge for 13 years. That gave me great experience that I can use to help you in a criminal matter, such possession, assault or DUI. I have been certified by the National Judges College in criminal matters.

Additionally, I have been through a divorce. That experience taught me how to protect my clients and how to effectively fight for them. I know what they are going through emotionally. A lawyer who will answer tough questions and help you make correct decisions is invaluable.

My law degree is from the Nashville School of Law. My undergraduate degree is from Vanderbilt University. I have been certified by the National Judges College.

If you need an attorney for criminal matters, a divorce or a family matter, call me at 615-459-3131. We will set up an appointment and you can decide.
