As a Birmingham, AL criminal defense and personal injury attorney, I know better than to argue with a stop sign. However, I will always be a strong voice for my clients. Since I started this firm, I have handled a number of cases that gained local and state attention and news coverage. And though I pride myself on a great trial record, I also understand that sometimes we need to negotiate or find outside-the-box solutions to get the best results for our clients. I firmly believe that my ability to combine these two perspectives is one of the reasons I have been recognized multiple times in Birmingham Magazine's annual "Birmingham's Top Attorneys."

It's great to be recognized as a top attorney in Birmingham, AL because it's my hometown. I graduated from West End High School and then the University of North Alabama before I earned my law degree from Birmingham School of Law. In law school, I was President of the Black Law Student Association and Vice-President of Sigma Delta Kappa, the school's honorary law fraternity. I was also Captain of the Trial Advocacy Team and was selected for publication in the Southern Journal of Policy and Justice, where I was also chosen as "Editor of the Year" for Volume III.

Because I am one of the few Alabama lawyers that specialize in helping people get their driver's license back, some folks call me "The Driver License Lawyer." I'm fine with that title, although a larger part of my practice is handling serious criminal cases and personal injury matters (car wrecks, medical malpractice, etc.). I do not shy away from taking tough cases. I pride myself on listening to my clients, understanding their needs, and adding a voice to their cause, speaking for them in a way that they may not be able to themselves.

I handle cases in municipal and state courts all over Alabama. I also handle federal cases in the U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama.
I am involved not only in the bar, but also in my community.

Some of my associations include:

Alabama Bar Association, Young Lawyer Section (Executive Committee Member)
Magic City Bar Association (Executive Board Member)
University of North Alabama Alumni Association (Birmingham Chapter President)
More Than Conquerors Faith Church (Men's Committee)
Growing Kings, Inc. Mentoring Initiative
