I am an advocate and representative for businesses focusing in the industrial hemp and legal cannabis industry. I am the author of "Cannabis Business Law", a legal business primer for industry professionals and lawyers alike, and the firsts such book of its kind. I have been focusing all of my advocacy efforts to promotion of and legalization efforts for the last 5 years, backed by nearly two decades as a business, corporate, and bankruptcy lawyer. Over the years, I have helped thousands of businesses and individuals reorganize and thrive.
I am passionate about music and play guitar every day. I gig with my rock band most weekends and do session work for friends on the side. I am in love with my wife, who also happens to be the first girl I kissed on a play date in first grade. We have 5 great kids who never cease to inspire, challenge, encourage, and educate us about themselves, ourselves, and life. We're fortunate to live in Asheville, NC and travel often.
I hope to get an opportunity to speak with you. Until then, and if you’re interested, my official bio is below. I include it because it probably matters to you (as it should) that I have almost two decades of experience practicing law and that I know what I’m talking about. But, the most important things I’d like to convey are that I care and I listen. I’ve got my share of grey hairs and have handled thousands of cases; however, I’m not an aloof, judgmental, starched shirt lawyer. I’d rather wear my jeans to the office, have a real conversation, and get to know you.
