Attorney Talking to Client

A Realistic and Common Sense Approach to YOUR Legal Issues and Questions

My goal is to help you find a efficient solution to your legal questions and problems.  To do that, you should be thinking about this question: "What is your goal?".  From your answer, I can try my best to take you through how the law affects that goal, and what your options may be in achieving that goal.

Why Come to Me?

  • Member of the Alabama Bar since 1986 and a lawyer in Anniston since 1990.
  • Law degree from the University of Virginia Law School, still an associate member of the Virginia Bar.
  • Have handled federal and state lawsuits in employment, retirement benefits, discrimination claims, bodily injury / death claims, breach of contract, probate disputes and will contests.
  • First year after law school employed as a law clerk by a United States District Judge.
  • Have spent even more time keeping clients out of court and avoiding having to go to court.
  • I understand the reasons people want to bring lawsuits, and I know when that is the best option and when it isn't.
  • I'm not interested in lengthy, expensive, legal proceedings where no one really "wins" anything".
  • I will explain just how the law affects your property, your assets, your plans for your survivors (particularly children)
  • If contemplating divorce, what to expect now, and what to expect 10 years from now
  • If I don't think you have a good case, I will tell you.
  • If I think you may have a good case, but the level of complexity and expense involved is beyond what is available here, I will find the right lawyer(s) for you and work with them.
