I have been practicing law since 1989, and am well-known for serving as a district court judge in Cabarrus County from 2000 to 2010.  During that time, I presided over thousands of cases in criminal, civil and juvenile court, balancing the facts of the case with the law to reach a fair and impartial decision. I have now returned to the private sector representing clients in domestic, criminal, juvenile, and personal injury cases in both Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties.  I am also a certified Superior Court Mediator and Family Financial Mediator.

My private practice experience along with the expertise gained through my tenure on the bench make me an asset to both my clients and the firm.

I am a native of Davidson, NC but make Concord my home now.  I graduated from NC State University in 1986 and went on to graduate from Wake Forest Law School in 1989.  I was in private practice from 1989 to 2000 handling criminal, domestic, and juvenile matters in Cabarrus County.

I am a past member of the Corporation for the Boys and Girls Club of Cabarrus County, a former Deacon, a Sunday School teacher at Bethel Presbyterian Church, a singer in the southern gospel quartet “Witness”, and am on the Board of Directors of The Old Courthouse Theatre in Concord. I was also a volunteer firefighter for many years and I sit on the Board of Directors for the Odell Fire and Rescue Department.
