Serving Abingdon, Bristol, Kingsport, Johnson City, and the Surrounding Communities, and Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee

With more than 25 years of legal practice, I and my firm have provided representation to clients in matters ranging from speeding, reckless driving and car accidents to business matters and estate planning to complex multi-million dollar cases, including whistleblowing cases.

As an Order of the Coif graduate in the top 10% of my law school class at Duke Law School, I have argued and written briefs for clients at every level of state and federal appeal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.


  • Accidents, Personal Injury, and Wrongful Death

    No one asks to be in an accident, such as a car crash, or injured at work. If you’ve been in an accident or hurt as the result of the reckless actions of someone else, you expect – and deserve – full and fair compensation. Unfortunately, in car crashes and other injury cases, defendants and insurance companies will do everything possible to avoid paying what they owe. They may even blame you.

    I help injury victims and the families who have lost a loved one get full and fair compensation from those who try to deny liability. I represent clients in virtually all types of injury matters, including traffic accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, animal bites, motorcycle crashes, and workplace injuries.

    It’s important for clients to know that I am a trial lawyer. I will not hesitate to take a case to court. If defendants and insurance companies will not pay a fair settlement, I and my clients are well prepared for trial, and to let a jury determine liability and damages.

  • Reckless Driving and Speeding in Virginia and Tennessee

    If you’ve been charged with reckless driving or driving 10 or more miles over the speed limit in Virginia, the law provides that jail time is possible upon a conviction. Tennessee also provides harsh penalties for speeding. Don’t take this chance.

    As an experienced Virginia traffic ticket lawyer, I vigorously defend all traffic charges brought against clients, and seek to have charges dismissed or reduced, often to much more minor offenses that involve small fines and/or traffic school. I also provide representation for motorists charged with speeding and reckless driving in Tennessee, which also provides harsh penalties for these matters.

  • Whistleblowing

    Fraud against the government is reprehensible. I and my firm have helped whistleblowers in exposing fraud, resulting in millions of dollars being recovered for the federal government, and substantial compensation for whistleblowers for their patriotic actions.

    My estate planning practice is similarly focused on providing solutions to clients. I help clients protect assets and their interests during life, and prepare cost-efficient plans to help transfer assets upon death in a tax-advantaged manner.

Regardless of the nature of a matter, ALL clients expect – and I and my firm provide – dedicated, full-service representation and attention.

We do not provide “assembly-line” services. When you retain me as your attorney, you will be working directly with me.  You will have my attention and dedication throughout the duration of your matter.


I know clients are naturally concerned about fees.  I can advise of the likely fees at the outset of our engagement, if this can be determined. I offer contingent fees and fixed fees for many matters.  The Firm also accepts credit cards for non-contingency matters. I believe in providing legal services efficiently, using technology and always being mindful of handling every client’s matter in their best interests.  You should never hesitate to ask me any questions that you might have about fees.
