Education

Admitted

  • Alabama, 2011

Since joining the firm in 2011, I’ve had the privilege of helping an array of individuals and companies solve their problems. Whether it’s defending Alabama doctors accused of medical malpractice or corporations in product liability actions in forums from Arizona to Virginia, I strive to always aggressively, creatively and efficiently represent my clients in every facet of litigation.

After obtaining a degree in Economics from Auburn University, I graduated cum laude from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, where I served as Symposium Editor of the Cumberland Law Review. I have been recognized as a “Rising Star of the Bar” in 2013 by B-Metro Magazine and as a “Rising Star” in the 2014-2015 Alabama and 2016-2017 Mid-South editions of Super Lawyers.

I grew up in Birmingham and am a member of the Cathedral Church of the Advent. I’m also an avid Auburn fan. Most importantly, I’m a proud husband and the co-founder of a baby boy named Gus.
