Despite growing up in a family full of physicians, I never felt that medicine was my calling. Instead, I was fascinated by all the news stories I saw about attorneys — not to mention my favorite TV series, Matlock. By the age of 6, I already knew what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to become a trial lawyer.
Fast forward a couple of decades and that goal had become a reality. I had just graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law and was starting out my career as a criminal prosecutor. For the next 10 years, I would successfully prosecute thousands of criminal cases throughout Augusta, Georgia and Nashville, Tennessee.
During my time as a criminal prosecutor, I gained invaluable insight into the way prosecutors and law enforcement professionals think. I even learned how to perform wiretaps and investigate a case the way a police officer would. As you can imagine, this kind of insider knowledge is extremely useful when it comes to defending people under criminal investigation. Still, I knew I could do even more to help others facing legal challenges, and so I decided to expand my practice to include civil law cases, as well.
My favorite part of the job is seeing clients go on to thrive after their case is resolved.
