Educational Background:

Scholarly Lectures/Writings:
Pro bono/Community Service:
  • Our law firm sponsors an annual car seat safety check event in connection with National Child Passenger Safety Week in September every year. Trained safety seat inspectors from the Georgia State Patrol, as well as the Lowndes County Sherrifs Office and the Valdosta Police and Fire Departments are on hand to check car seats and answer parents' questions. We invite the public to stop by and have their car seats checked for recalls, secure installation, and proper fit for their child. As injury lawyers, we see all too often the devastating effects of car crashes, particularly when children are involved. Proper car seat use is our best tool to protect children in a crash. We feel that promoting proper car seat use and awareness of laws and guidelines surrounding car seat use can prevent tragedy., 2013
  • Spoke to the students at Georgia Military College (Valdosta) on Constitutional Law issues in a civil practice during Constitution Week. I spoke on the importance of the Constitutional right to a trial by jury and the recent medical malpractice caps instituted with SB3 and struck down by the Georgia Supreme Court in the Nestlehutt decision., 2013
  • Each year, I devote a significant amount of time to helping those in need of legal help without charging a fee, either because they cannot pay it or simply because it is the right thing to do under the circumstances. For example, I helped a young family avoid eviction for not paying rent when their aparment was filled with mold and their landlord refused to do anything about it earlier this year. They used their rent money to pay for doctors visits and medication for their children who had become sickened by the mold. We don't have a formal pro bono program in South Georgia where we live and practice law, but we still find ways to help people and give a portion of our time when we aren't getting paid for it.
