In my 24 years of practicing law, I have been fortunate to be able to focus on the areas of the law that interest me the most. Today my practice focuses on the representation of businesses from formation and contracts to every day employment and business related issues. My strength is my personal attention to my business owner clients and their employees to meet all their legal needs.
My practice has also included the representation of children. That representation is sometimes tied to delinquent charges incurred by the child or as a guardian ad litem for children who are involved in dependency and neglect proceedings. This experience has also given me great insight when representing Parents, Grandparents and other family members who are concerned for the welfare of their children.
My love and unique approach to this area of the law is what influenced me to become certified as a Specialist in Child Welfare Law. I have been awarded that Certification by the National Association of the Council for Children. After obtaining that, I began representing children and parents within the school system who were in need of Independent Education Plans (IEP’s) or 504 plans. My years of experience as a litigator, in the Juvenile Court, and relationships within the school system, allow me to work with the family and the school system to obtain the educational results necessary for the child.
I also represent clients who have been injured either in an automobile accident, slip and fall or work related incident. In my law practice, I am calm, responsive and firm. My client’s appreciate the frankness with which I speak. I always advise my clients of the law and my honest analysis of their situation, while at the same time respecting their wishes and their ultimate decision.
While Tennessee is home now and has been for over 18 years, it was no surprise when I opened our Florida satellite office. I grew up in Key Largo, Florida, which led to my interests in scuba diving, boating, and anything related to water sports. I received my Psychology degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. I then received my law degree from Nova Southeastern School of Law in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1994. I am a member of Brentwood United Methodist Church, an active board member of the Highland Park HOA, , and a member of the Nashville and Williamson County Bar Associations.
