“If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.” – Will Rogers

I love being a lawyer. I believe in what I’m doing. Whether it’s defending Alabama doctors accused of medical malpractice or corporations in product liability actions in forums from Arizona to South Carolina, I strive to always aggressively, creatively and efficiently represent my clients in every facet of litigation. It’s about work. Hard work.

Since joining the firm in 2011, I’ve represented an array of clients in various areas of litigation. After obtaining a degree in Economics from Auburn University, I graduated cum laude from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. 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 and 2015 Alabama 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.
