Biography

I am an experienced and dependable Attorney at Burnside Law Firm. For over 25 years, I have been dedicated to providing outstanding representation for injured clients. My practice focuses on Motor Vehicle Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse, Personal Injury, Premises Liability, Workers’ Compensation, and Wrongful Death. I have been successful in hundreds of cases and have recovered millions of dollars for my clients. I am committed to helping you and your family recover the compensation you need and deserve.

I received my B.S. from Presbyterian College, and my J.D. from the Mercer University, Walter F. George School of Law. I have been licensed to practice in the State of Georgia since 1991. My jurisdictions include the U.S. District Court Southern District of Georgia, Supreme Court of Georgia, Georgia Court of Appeals, and the 11th Circuit. I have been honored by multiple organizations including Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, Atlanta Magazine and The National Trial Lawyers. Additionally, I have an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
