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. And I strive to always aggressively, creatively and efficiently represent my clients in every facet of litigation. It’s about work. Hard work. That’s Lightfoot, Franklin & White.
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. Recently I was recognized as a “Rising Star of the Bar” in 2013 by B-Metro Magazine and as a “Rising Star” in the 2014 Alabama edition of Super Lawyers.
I grew up in Birmingham and am a member of the Cathedral Church of the Advent. I’m also an avid (rabid?) Auburn fan. Most importantly, I’m a proud husband and a parent of two rescue dogs, Smokey and Abbie.
