Criminal defense has been my passion for the last 28 and a half years. To strive to be the best, you have to be able to take on all types of cases regardless of public perception. Every individual has a right to competent counsel. I have had success at all levels of the spectrum of criminal defense. I was recognized with the assistance of counsel award for representing individuals who couldn't afford an attorney. I have had high profile cases which gained national attention that provided me a guest appearance on the Bill O'Riley show. I've been a legal analyst for the Nashville television stations as well as a guest commentator for the major Nashville newspapers. When people think of me, they think criminal defense. I have the experience to properly represent individuals whether it is a misdemeanor or a serious felony. Your individual situation is important to me and I look forward to showing you how my experience will be a valuable asset to you.
