HOW CAN WE HELP?
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina
My legal career began in 1992 when I worked as an Assistant District Attorney for 8 years. Being an Assistant District Attorney gave me the skill and knowledge to thoroughly prepare for all of my clients’ cases as if they were going to trial, and that effort helps yield results for my clients. I am ready, willing, and able to take cases all the way to trial, in order to ensure the best results for my clients.
I have experience and knowledge in representing clients who have been injured by the careless, reckless, negligent, or intentional acts of others. After working as an Assistant District Attorney, I was a personal injury litigator in a North Carolina personal injury law firm. Ten plus years of settlement negotiation and litigation experience has allowed me to craft creative legal arguments that will best serve my clients’ needs.
I currently focus on the areas of criminal law, personal injury and wrongful death. I counsel clients living in Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, and Wake Counties, including the cities of Chapel Hill, Durham, Fayetteville, Raleigh, and Sandford. I also practice in the Wilmington area.
I am a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the Wake County Bar Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers (Tenth Judicial District), the North Carolina Association of Trial Lawyers, the Dispute Resolution Commission, and the Better Business Bureau.
