Job Title

I am passionate about family law.  I take great pride in helping my clients through some of the most difficult times of their lives.  I begin every case by first putting myself in my client’s shoes.  I am a great listener and I am very easy to talk to. 

Ever the optimist, I approach each case with a positive outlook, choosing to find great opportunity in any difficulty that life may bring. I am the lawyer you want handling your family law case.  I excel at problem-solving.  I am level headed and I see the big picture.  I will remain focused on your objectives, even if you can’t. 

Clients choose me, not just for my legal skills, but for the comfort and peace of mind I consistently deliver.  I am a dedicated attorney who strives to provide the highest quality of service while meeting client needs with the utmost care and courtesy. I recognize that no two family law cases are exactly the same, and I enjoy working with my clients to develop a unique plan of action for each case.  Whether it is mediation or litigation, I am adaptable and can quickly respond to the demands of the moment.  This gives me an edge in family law, where new conflicts often arise at a moment’s notice. I am persuasive and articulate, and I have a natural talent for storytelling. I practice family law because family has always been important to me. 

For over 16 years, I worked closely with my own family on my grandparents’ vegetable farm.  I know the importance of family.  I am also not afraid of hard work.  I will always strive to give you the exact type of representation that I would want if I were in need of an attorney.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While at UNC, I was a resident advisor, a volunteer with the Campus YMCA, and an active member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.  I later received my Juris Doctor degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law, where I graduated Cum Laude and in the top twelve percent of my class. During law school, I was a member of the North Carolina Central University Law Review and was a 2007-2008 Womble Carlyle Scholar. My wife and I moved to Charlotte, my wife’s hometown, in 2010.  Since that time, I have gained valuable experience in both civil and criminal law.

When I am not practicing law, I enjoy exercising, playing pool, watching the Carolina Panthers, spending time outdoors, and traveling.  I especially enjoy spending family time with my wife and son, David II.
