Attorney Profile


I was born in 1968 at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona to parents who grew up in a small northeastern North Carolina town.  I was raised in Wake County, North Carolina.  In 1990, I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in U.S. History.  I attended the University of Mississippi School of Law from which I graduated cum laude in 1993.

From 1993 to 2006, I practiced with a law firm in Windsor, North Carolina.  During my years at that firm, I handled a variety of different cases with an initial focus on criminal law and family law.  I also represented the child support agencies in Bertie and Hertford Counties.  In 2006, myself and another partner combined our practices to form a law firm in Edenton, North Carolina.  After being in law firms since 1993, I felt that it was time for a new direction and opened my own law firm in 2011.  

I am a member of the First District Bar Association, North Carolina Bar Association and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
