Growing up, I learned about the value of hard work from my family: a long line of carpenters, factory workers, and truck drivers. I spent Sunday mornings at an evangelical church where the preacher didn't mince words. He was a friend of the family and inspired the direct and honest approach I use with my clients.
I was born and raised in Rock Island, Tennessee. My parents divorced before I was able to walk, and my mother raised me as a single parent. With the help of our neighbors, family, and friends, my mother was able to support us and finish her high school education. When my mother remarried, my stepfather quickly became a father to me, and I've called him "Dad" ever since.
When I turned 16, my parents gave me a '92 Chevy S-10 and $20, telling me to use the money on gas to find a job. I worked at a fast-food restaurant to pay my bills during high school and my first few years of college, and it was at this fast-food job that I met my future wife, Holly. Today, we have two children, Anlee and Will, that keep us on our toes every single day, and Holly works as a school counselor.
Holly and I started our life together with nothing but hard work. After we got married, Holly worked on her master's degree, and I started my legal education at Nashville School of Law. I attended law school at night, and I spent my days as a judicial commissioner/magistrate in my hometown of Warren County. I spent the last two years of law school as the DUI Coordinator for the Williamson County District Attorney's Office and was fortunate to conduct six jury trials while I was still in law school.
After passing the bar exam, I stayed with the District Attorney's Office for another year and was immediately promoted to DUI Prosecutor. This combination of experience and life lessons has been invaluable now that I have established my law practice. I regularly conduct jury trials and enjoy the challenges involved in litigating cases in the courtroom. I will do everything possible to ensure my clients' rights are respected. If there is anything I can do to assist you or your family, then please don’t hesitate to give me a call.
