I have over 33 years experience in civil litigation with an emphasis on Landlord Tenant Law and Insurance law. I've enjoyed practicing law here in Winston-Salem since 1987. I worked for 29 years with a local law firm with a broad general practice before joining a major regional insurance defense firm for almost two years. I am happy to have finally open my own firm in 2018. According to Martindale.com, my peers rate me as having high legal ability with very high ethical standards. I am a member of the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association, The North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys, and The Forsyth County Bar Association. I am also an associate member of the Property Manager's Division of Winston-Sale Regional Association of Realtors where I periodically teach classes on landlord-tenant topics. Beyond the practice of law I am a certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church and serve as lay leader in my local congregation. I greatly enjoy hiking and kayaking and spending time with my wife of nearly 30 years, our two daughters, and two Maltese dogs.
