I chose to build my law practice in the areas of Auto Accident and Personal Injury because these areas of the law are the most accurate reflection of my values and my upbringing. Being the son of a breakfast hostess and a retired US Army Sargent turned construction worker, the values instilled upon me by my parents were that of hard work, loyalty, and compassion. Personal Injury is the area of the law where I see clients at their most vulnerable. Whether it be at the hands of a multi-billion dollar insurance company or a negligent individual, I want to build my practice protecting those of us who need the protection the most.
The personal and professional bonds built with the client allow for all of these qualities to shine. It is these virtues, instilled in me at a young age, that drives everything that I do for each client at my firm.
I am a 2000 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law. My legal experience includes extensive work in the areas of Personal Injury, Family Law, Bankruptcy, and Estate Planning. The years leading up to this point took me on an incredible journey through larger law firms. Yet, despite the experience I gained and the expertise I acquired in practice, one thing was always missing. The lack of personal attention and detail that each client expects and deserves. I became convinced that by entering a solo practice where I could dedicate more time and attention directly to the client I would not only improve my ability to be a lawyer, but more importantly improve the experience of the client.
My path to a career in law is driven by one idea, the law is the forum that best allows me to use my talents and God given skills to help the most people. Though it is important for lawyers to be versed and be experts in what they do, the single biggest attribute that I bring into the practice of law is empathy. I work for you, not the other way around. A lot of lawyers have forgotten that point. I'm here to counsel, to write, to advocate, and to argue, but my most important job requirement is to listen.
Of course, I would not be anywhere near where I am today without my family. I've only gotten to this point by being a part of something special and larger than myself. To my enduring wife and to my beautiful children, I say thank you for giving me the daily inspiration to pursue this path and translate the compassion and loyalty you have shown me into the lives of the people I am allowed to serve.
