Good Attorney

The most important part of being a good attorney is to just be a good person. If I am going to stand up and fight for my clients, I first have to know what I stand for, myself. Being an effective advocate depends on relationships built on integrity and trust—whether it’s with my clients, the judges, or the jurors. This is even true for the insurance companies and their defense lawyers. They know that when I say something—I mean it—and I have the means to back it up.

Is Crucial

Finding the right attorney to handle your case can be one of the most important decisions you ever make. You want someone that you can trust to have the right values, the right attitude, and the right experience to get the job done. Before I founded my own practice, I spent almost thirteen years with one of the top litigation firms in North Alabama. I have handled a wide variety of cases and represented injured people and their families across the state. No matter how large or small the case—I believe I have to be able to look my client in the eyes and make them one promise—I’ll do the best job I can.

I put my client’s needs first in every case I handle. Medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional anguish—all of these things can quickly add up and start to weigh someone down. It is my goal to make it possible for my client to focus on their recovery and getting their life back track, while we worry about the paperwork and fussing and fighting with the insurance companies. We are proud to be able to handle a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases on behalf of our clients. Regardless of how you or a loved one have been injured, we can help.

Attorney At Law

My family traces its Huntsville roots to Redstone Arsenal in the 1960s, when both my grandfathers were stationed here with Army missile programs. My history in North Alabama goes back to the small Lauderdale County farm where my grandmother’s family slaughtered their own hogs and picked their own crops before they had electricity or running water. Over the years, we’ve made this part of the world our home.

My maternal grandfather was the son of an immigrant family, and that was the cause of many challenges in his life. Despite that, he dedicated his life to this country. He spent twenty-six years in the Army and then went to work on Redstone Arsenal as a civilian. He taught me that integrity and honor weren’t just words—they were things you carried in your heart—and they were what formed the choices you made when times got tough. He taught me that it didn’t matter where people came from, what they looked like, or what language they spoke. People should be judged by their deeds and how they act when no one else was looking.

When I was young, my father was laid off and had to completely start over. He operated a sheet metal press in a factory and stocked shelves at discount stores to provide for us while he went back to school and earned his college degree. Eventually, he even put himself through graduate school at night, just so that he could do better for his family. He taught me that there is value in hard work—not just to make money to pay the bills, but as a way to prove yourself. You should take pride in your work and in a job well-done, and you should respect the people you work with. It doesn’t matter if you are standing on the assembly line or working deals in the executive suite—your attitude should be the same.

I never planned on a career in the law. I took my first paying job when I was fourteen, stocking drink coolers and sweeping floors at a country gas station. I was the oldest child in my family, so I had to make my own way and put myself through college. I would often work two or even three jobs at a time. I’ve worked as a grocery store clerk, dishwasher, and security guard. I’ve dug ditches and driven ground rods by hand, waited tables, unloaded freight trucks, and stocked shelves. I’ve been a restaurant prep cook and retail store manager. I’ve worked third shift on a factory floor. I learned that any job worth doing is worth doing right, and that every job deserves respect. Then, when I had the opportunity to go to law school and become an attorney, I realized that I had a chance to stand up and fight for the people that I had worked alongside my whole life. From the day I passed the Bar, I’ve done nothing but represent working people and their families, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
