When I was a child, I watched To Kill a Mockingbird” on TV. I was so impressed by Atticus Finch’s character and integrity that I wanted to emulate him. While he is a fictional character, he still represents the best in our profession. It inspired to become the first lawyer in my family, which made my father proud.I am driven, focused and dedicated to my craft. I currently serve as an adjunct professor of law at Cumberland School of Law, where I teach a course in depositions and trial advocacy. I volunteer my time as a bench judge and scoring judge for various law school trial competitions and moot court competitions. I previously served on the Board of Directors with the Greater Birmingham Humane Society and in 2013 served as chairman of its legislative advocacy committee. In 2011, I served on the Associate Board for the Alabama Arthritis Foundation. In my personal time, I enjoy college football, traveling, cooking, hunting, the outdoors and spending time with his family and friends.
