I grew up in Bogalusa, Louisiana. After earning a Bachelor of Science from the University of Southern Mississippi, I attended and received a law degree from the University of Tennessee College of Law. While attending UT, I worked at night and on weekends at Kern’s Bakery.
For the first half of my career I represented local and national corporations and major insurance companies. During this time I gained extensive trial experience, trying well over 100 jury trials not only in Tennessee but in at least a dozen other states. This work provided me with valuable knowledge of the way and manner in which corporations and insurance companies evaluate and defend lawsuits.
Deciding I needed a change, I left the defense firm and now devote my time and energy to representing the injured. I continue to try cases as the need arises.
