I love practicing law because of the people I meet. Our clients are creative, passionate, savvy and fun. Each day presents new challenges and adventures. I enjoy working with clients to find innovative ways to protect their business and help them succeed. Beyond legal counsel, I have helped many clients find new opportunities, as well as make beneficial connections. With 15 years of legal experience, in addition to personal ventures, I am able to add value with innovative ideas.
Beyond my legal practice, I enjoy growing hops and drinking craft beer on the back porch of our office. We are one of the few (only?) law firms that have taps serving local and regional craft beer. I have an amazing wife and two wonderful daughters. We enjoy pulling for our Clemson Tigers and traveling. Having grown up with a half-pipe in my back yard, I still enjoy skateboarding.
I graduated from Clemson University magna cum laude with a B.A. in English in 1994. In 1997, I graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina with a Master in Health Administration. In 2002, I graduated from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill School of Law in the top 20% of my class. I was admitted to both the North Carolina State Bar and the Mecklenburg County Bar in 2002. I am a proud and active member of CREW Charlotte.
