I am a criminal defense attorney. I help solve problems for my clients and their families, fixing challenging situations under difficult circumstances. My job is to defend people who have been charged with crimes in state and federal courts across North Carolina and throughout the country - and it's a job I love. After spending several years as a prosecutor, I decided to start my own law firm in 2007, and I've been passionately defending the accused ever since.

Each day, every day, I work tirelessly to master my craft and to better serve the people I represent.

My job performance directly affects peoples' lives and I take pride in that. Success in criminal defense means changing lives by what I do on a daily basis. Solving problems is the work that I am best suited for. In college, I studied Chemical Engineering. It may not sound related, but that's where I discovered that I love solving problems. In my legal practice, I am solving problems every day for people, hunting for the best possible outcome based on all the facts and evidence at hand. I am passionate about this work and wouldn't trade it for anything else.
