An Honest Georgia Lawyer Ready To Advocate For You In Criminal And Civil Matters

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.

Applying Prosecution Knowledge To Criminal Defense

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.

Get The Advantage Of A Trial-Ready Attorney

Don’t let the courtroom dramas fool you – not every legal matter winds up going to trial. In fact, the majority of any case (criminal or civil) happens outside the courtroom.

Still, it’s always in your best interests to have a trial-ready lawyer on your side. That way, if your case takes an unexpected turn, or if you need to take a more aggressive approach to resolve your matter, you’ll know that you have the legal support you need to keep moving forward. When you choose me, you get an attorney who handled more than 50 jury trials.

Fighting For You, Whatever Charge You Face

To me, your alleged crime isn’t what matters. What does matter is giving you the benefit of the doubt and fighting to make sure that a judge and jury do the same.

I’ve been handling criminal cases both in and out of the courtroom since 2002. I use my experience and insights to defend those accused of drug crimes, crimes involving firearms, violent offenses, theft, white collar crimes and so much more.

Taking Care Of Civil Law Clients

Civil law is a huge field of practice, so it’s important for your attorney to be flexible. Although I can handle just about any kind of civil case you bring to my door, these are the case types with which I have had some of the greatest success in recent years:

    • Product liability claims. As a law student, I took a strong interest in this topic and studied it closely under a professor who worked exclusively on these types of personal injury cases. Perhaps that’s why I’ve had so much success helping clients get paid for the harmful and defective products they’ve encountered.
    • Wrongful death claims. To successfully resolve a wrongful death claim, your attorney has to be both empathetic toward you and aggressive toward the person or people responsible for your loved one’s death. My clients appreciate my ability to balance these two necessities.
    • Whistleblower cases. People throughout Georgia and South Carolina have come to me after discovering that their employers violated the False Claims Act. I have been able to not only protect them from retaliation, but also to get them compensated for reporting the incident.

I also have experience with firearms cases and equestrian law. As I look to the future, I envision a wide range of other civil law cases coming my way. No matter how challenging or complex those cases may be, I look forward to each opportunity to make my clients’ lives a little easier.

Pursuing The Justice You Deserve

When you or a loved one gets hurt because of someone else’s careless mistake, you have every right to take legal action. By filing a personal injury, product liability or wrongful death claim, you can protect others from going through the same thing you have. As an added bonus, you can get paid for your pain and suffering.

I prepare every injury claim as though it will go through every possible step the legal process has to offer. So, when you come to me after getting hurt by a defective product or losing a loved one in a car accident, you can trust that I’ll be ready to fight relentlessly for the outcome you deserve.

Blowing The Whistle On Fraud

If you suspect your employer has made a false claim, it’s your ethical duty to blow the whistle. Whistleblowing may have a negative connotation to some, but in reality, it gives you a chance to minimize or reverse the damages fraud can cause. And, if your case is handled right, you could collect a portion of those damages as a reward for doing your due diligence.

Providing Strong Advocacy In Georgia, Tennessee And South Carolina

As much as I love the Augusta, Georgia, community, I decided years ago that I would do everything I can to offer excellent legal service to as many people in need as possible. That’s why I’m licensed to practice in so many courts throughout Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.
