Summary

I am a criminal-defense attorney dedicated to thoroughly and aggressively fighting for the best possible result for my clients. My office is in Spartanburg, SC, and I am licensed in both South Carolina and Georgia. I have successful trial experience with felonies, misdemeanors, and DUIs. I have completed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's DUI detection training course, which is the same curriculum police officers take during their training. I also handle speeding/traffic tickets and other cases in local traffic courts, including Franklin County Probate Court in Carnesville, Georgia. Please don't hesitate to call me at (864) 398-4656 for a free consultation about your case. I recommend that you have any paperwork about your case (list of charges, bond paperwork, tickets, etc.) in front of you when you call. A link to my website is toward the bottom of this profile.
