Thank you for taking the time to read up on my background. I will cover some of the dry academic points and then I will go over my philosophy for handling cases.
I spent the first ten years of my life in Europe and graduated from High School outside of Washington D.C. I attended the University of Virginia and graduated in 1993 with a degree in Foreign Affairs. After a year in banking, I went on to obtain my law degree from Mercer University in 1997.
I spent the next nine years trying cases for insurance companies including USAA, Liberty Mutual, Cotton States, Reliance, Montgomery, Great West and a variety of others. My practice grew more specialized and I was hired away from a trucking defense firm to handle complex cases for Liberty Mutual. Fed up with the lack of interaction with my clients and thankless hours, I decided to use my trial skills to help the victims of these companies. Over 20 years of practice, there are few insurance issues and fact patterns that I have yet to see.
I was chosen as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers Nationally by the National Trial Lawyers, my peers selected me to Georgia Trend Magazine’s “Legal Elite” list and I was selected as a Rising Star by Law and Politics’ Super Lawyers Magazine from 2009-2011. When I turned 40, I was selected to the Super Lawyers list and am on their Blue Ribbon Panel as one of the Top 100 lawyers in Georgia. These things are important, but they are only a reason why you should sit down for a consultation with our firm. After you meet us, your head and your heart will lead you to the correct decision.
