Born and raised in Indian Trail, North Carolina, I attended Union County Public Schools. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Industrial Relations and Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 1997.
Next, I attended Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University and received my Juris Doctor degree in May 2002. I graduated Cum Laude. While in law school, I was a Staff Member and Articles Editor of the Campbell University Law Review.
I am licensed to practice before all North Carolina courts and am a member of North Carolina Advocates for Justice, the North Carolina Bar Association, the American Bar Association and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I have served on multiple committees with the North Carolina Bar Association. I have served as the Secretary, Vice President and President of the Union County Bar Association and as Vice President and President of the 20B Judicial District Bar.
I practice both civil and criminal litigation. My criminal practice includes all misdemeanors and felonies, with emphasis on driver license restoration, traffic and DWI offenses. My civil practice is concentrated in the area of personal injury.
When not in the office, I enjoy cheering for the Tar Heels and the Carolina Panthers. I take great pride in working in my yard and enjoy fly fishing out West. I am also an avid Spartan Obstacle Racing athlete and have competed in over 20 events in 6 states.
