Professional Biography

I received my Juris Doctorate from Wake Forest School of Law after graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and have been with the firm for over thirty years.

I specialize in representing those who have suffered personal injuries from motor vehicle accidents. I fight vigorously for my clients who have been involved in accidents and suffered personal injuries and general damages. I take special interest in each and every injury claim, and without hesitation, expect insurance companies to do the same, in order to make certain you receive all of the compensation to which you are entitled.

I work from the firm’s Charlotte office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and from the firm’s Denver office every Tuesday and Thursday.
