I have over twenty-four (24) years of extensive experience in the areas of civil and criminal law in Alabama’s state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels. Specializing in both civil and criminal cases has given me a unique advantage over most attorneys because I have learned techniques that are applicable to both disciplines of the law. For most of my legal career, I have had a BV Rating from Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating. My practice areas have been criminal defense, state and federal appellate practice, particularly with an emphasis on death penalty cases, sexual harassment, employment discrimination and retaliation, wrongful death, personal injuries, and malicious prosecution. In Alabama, five Death Row inmates have been exonerated. I successfully represented Wesley Quick, the 5th exoneree, on his appeal. I also worked with Barry Scheck and Nina Morrison from The Innocence Project to obtain the release of an Alabama inmate through DNA evidence.
