I have over twelve years of experience representing injured workers, accident victims, and people seeking social security disability benefits. I have never represented an insurance company because I want to help people rather than corporations. 

The result of your case has huge consequences for your entire family. It is the most stressful thing in your life. I enjoy being that calming influence to reduce that stress as much as possible. I can do that by answering all of your questions, working hard on your behalf, and being honest with you about the challenges you are going to face. I can’t take away all of the stress, but I can help manage it.

I also enjoy being a resource for my clients. If you have a question that is outside of my area of expertise, ask me anyways. If I don’t know the answer, I can refer you to someone who does. Part of being a good lawyer is networking with other lawyers. That means that if I don’t know an answer, I generally know someone who does and has a reputation for returning calls.

Outside of representing you, I devote most of my time to my wife and two children. Additionally, I am active in the Atlanta Bar Association and Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.
