Thank you for visiting my website.

While now based in Greenville, South Carolina, I practice in Asheville, Waynesville, Hendersonville, and Western North Carolina since October 2000.  It has been my pleasure to serve Western North Carolina when I lived in the Haw Creek neighborhood in Asheville from October 2000 to November 2014.  I married a woman living in Greenville and made the decision to continue serving my clients and to commute.  

 

I've worked for one of the largest law firms in the world, a boutique law firm, and one of the most respected law firms in western North Carolina.  In June 2017 I decided to follow my passion and help people and small businesses of low and moderate means.  

I was humbled to be nominated by my peers to North Carolina Business Magazine's 2015 and 2016 Legal Elite, and proud to be awarded Pisgah Legal Services's Pro Bono Service Award in 2012 and 2013.  I served the profession as President of the 28th Judicial District Bar.  I am proudest of the times when I've improved someone's life.  I believe access to justice, or access to a lawyer, is for everyone, not just those who can't afford it and not just for those who absolutely can.
