I have practiced law for over 28 years.  I have represented thousands of persons from all walks of life in the state and federal courts and administrative agencies here in Georgia.

I was born in Macon, Georgia, and graduated from Tattnall Square Academy in 1978.  I worked my way through college, and graduated from Georgia College in 1982 with a degree in Political Science and Public Administration.  I graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1985, and was admitted to the State Bar of Georgia in June of 1985.

I am admitted to practice before the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution as a general mediator and arbitrator.
