In college, I was actually pre-med. But during summer break one year, I was summoned to jury duty. Seeing the excellent work of both the lawyers & judge as well as the way we on the jury worked tirelessly to reach a fair verdict was inspiring. So much so, I changed to pre-law when I returned to campus fall semester. I was fortunate enough to begin my career at a litigation boutique firm where I was surrounded by gifted trial lawyers. They were generous with their time, and I soaked it all in. The skills that I learned were invaluable and inform my success. I’ve been named both “Top 40 Under 40″ and “Top 100” by The National Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only organization composed of the premier trial lawyers from across the country as well consistently been named one of the “Top Attorneys” by Birmingham Magazine and one of “The Most Prolific Trial Attorneys of Alabama” by The Alabama Jury Verdict Reporter. My hobbies revolve around my family, We love to RV, hike, camp, fly-fish, bird hunt and follow premiere league soccer.
