Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I'm originally from Buchanan County, Virginia. I graduated from King University in 1994, and from Wake Forest University School of Law in 1997. I started practicing in Raleigh in 1997, and worked for insurance companies for three years. In 2000, I changed sides to represent injury people and have done that ever since. I have tried cases across North Carolina, and have represented thousands of personal injury clients across the southeastern United States, Canada, and Central America. I opened my own firm in April 2000, after practicing with some of the largest personal injury firms in North Carolina for years. I hold an "AV" rating with the Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating system, and have been chosen as a member of "Super Lawyers" for the last ten years.

  • Free Consultation
    Consultations are free, with no obligation to hire me. If I think I can't help you, or that you can handle your own case, I'll tell you so, for FREE!
  • Contingent Fees
    I accept contingency fees on my personal injury cases, so you only pay if we get you a recovery, and even that comes from the recovery, not from your pocket.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    I want to help whoever I can, so if you have a case that doesn't fit the "traditional" personal injury profile, let's discuss it. There are lots of creative ways to work out fees and costs for any case! Other firms say they ONLY accept contingency fees, but I'll work with you if we need to, so we can get your case done. My goal is to help you do better with me than without me.
