Summary

I am a solo practitioner in Louisville, Kentucky, and represent clients throughout the state. I completed my undergraduate studies in South Carolina before moving back to Kentucky, where I received my J.D. at the University of Louisville. I have extensive experience in criminal defense (from petty misdemeanors to class A felonies), which includes serving as lead or sole counsel in felony jury trials where my clients were acquitted on all charges. I also have experience in family law, personal injury law, estate law, and other general practice areas. I am a fourth generation attorney continuing the family tradition of practicing law.
