I went to law school because I wanted to help people.
I was surrounded by classmates who wanted to land a job at a firm where they could sit at a desk and print money all day. I focused on becoming a lawyer who would specialize in helping people through dark and difficult times.
The day after I graduated with honors from Emory University School of Law, I received and accepted a job offer to be a public defender. I represented a high volume of clients charged with a wide variety of different offenses in a large office in metro Atlanta. That time as a public defender gave me an enormous amount of valuable courtroom experience. Dealing with different judges, prosecutors, and police officers soon became second nature to me.
Later on, my wife and I moved to Spartanburg, where I began my private practice. Though born and raised in Atlanta, I now call Spartanburg home. My practice is focused on helping people who are accused of criminal offenses of all kinds in Spartanburg and throughout the Upstate, including Greenville, Greer, Gaffney, Union, and the surrounding areas.
I believe that the practice of criminal-defense is a service, not a job. This is not a path that many who go to law school want to pursue. For me, it’s a calling, an honor, and a privilege.
I do this work because I enjoy it and I care about it. If I represent you, you can rest assured that I will:
- Take all the time you need to prepare you for what to expect.
- Plan a strategy with you for defending your case.
- Be available to you and respond whenever you have questions.
- Keep you up-to-date with any developments in your case.
- Work tirelessly toward getting the best possible result for your case.
And, most importantly:
- Be the most prepared person in the courtroom when your case is called.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can help you.
