In 1977 I started my practice as a Forsyth County lawyer, and eventually came to practice throughout Triad. I have come to enjoy family law cases. What I mean by that is I enjoy the challenge of handling any legal issue which directly affects any member of either an ongoing or dissolving family. That includes criminal, traffic, divorce, separation agreements, prenuptial agreements, domestic restraining orders (50-B) juvenile cases, child custody, post separation support, alimony, equitable distribution, wills, trusts, estates, probate, real estate, personal property issues, and traffic, to name a few. A good lawyer will enjoy the technicalities involved in solving legal issues. But a great lawyer feels most rewarded by helping other people.
My philosophy is simple. I believe clients should understand their cases. I believe the best lawyer is usually one with experience. I believe when you choose an attorney, you should gain some sense that the lawyer will gladly and competently try your case to a Judge or Jury, and be honest enough to tell you that there are often other workable solutions to your problem that might not be nearly as kind to his pocket book.
I have been a member in good standing of the North Carolina State Bar since 1977, and appear in court nearly every week.
