Born and raised in Macon, I am a lifelong member of the Middle Georgia community where I live with my wife and family. After attending Mckibben Lane Elementary School, I graduated as valedictorian from Tattnall Square Academy. I then attended Furman University and graduated in 1983 with a double major in History and Political Science. In 1986, I graduated from The University of Georgia School of Law and was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia that same year.
To the practice of law, I bring the values of hard work, fair play and respect for others that I learned from my parents. That's why, after spending several years working for larger firms, I opened my own private practice where my clients can be assured of individualized attention in a comfortable, professional environment. I handle cases from beginning to end, and am personally available to my clients. Instead of being shuffled off to a paralegal or secretary, I am available to speak with clients on the phone, meet with them in person and answer any questions they may have about their Social Security case.
Becoming sick and unable to work is a devastating experience made even more difficult when confronted with miles of redtape and an unfamliar system when applying for the Social Security benefits needed to make ends meet. That's why Social Security Disability Law is not one of many things I focus on- it is the sole focus of my practice. Because of this commitment, clients can be assured that their case will get the time and attention needed and that I will be available to deal with the Social Security Administration for them. Because I am admitted to practice in all Federal Courts in Georgia, including the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, if needed I can and will take your case to court.
