About this firm

I have lived in Union County my entire life. I began practicing law here because I wanted to help my fellow local residents with their legal problems. If you have found this site, you probably need my help. I am here to offer you professional and personalized assistance. I am experienced in a broad range of legal fields, but I concentrate my practice in the areas of Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, Driving While Impaired, Driver License Restoration, Traffic Offenses, Workers' Compensation and general Civil Litigation. While I focus my professional practice in Union County and surrounding areas, I have developed many contacts throughout North Carolina and neighboring states. If I cannot help you, I probably know someone who can. I am dedicated to providing you with quality representation at reasonable rates.

Please take a moment to explore my site. I have included a lot of useful information throughout the site, especially in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section. I am here to answer your questions. I am accessible by phone or email, and you can find that contact information on this site. I will respond promptly if you reach out to me. Thank you again for considering me to be your advocate when you need help. I never charge you for an initial consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.

Mission Statement

On April 23, 1910, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt gave an important speech at the Sorbonne in Paris. He spoke that day about the spirit of America, using powerful words which I reproduce here:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

I reproduce this here as my philosophy towards the practice of law. I am truly humbled by the trust you have placed in me by becoming my client. I am not afraid of or intimated by hard work. I am the man in the arena fighting for you. I will strive to see that you are represented to the best of my ability. I cannot guarantee I will always win, but I will guarantee this: You will always get my best effort. You have put your trust in me to advocate for you and represent you. I WORK FOR YOU. I will do everything within the rule of the law and ethics to see that you are truly represented.
