Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am a trial attorney and Rule 31 Listed Family Mediator based in Knoxville, Tennessee. I represent clients in counties throughout East Tennessee and the Mid-State. I focus my practice on helping clients pursue their Social Security disability benefits, serious personal bodily injury cases (including car, motorcycle, truck, and premises liability), all areas of family law (child support cases, child custody, divorce cases, visitation cases, and family law mediation) bankruptcy, estate planning and probate, and criminal defense.

I began my practice in 2005 and since that time have fought for clients in jury trials, bench trials, and administrative hearings. I am also a certified and practicing Rule 31 Listed Family Mediator and work to negotiate agreements that benefit my clients everyday.

If you are in need of an attorney who can answer your questions, prepare a winning strategy for your case, and deliver results that will benefit you, call me anytime.
