“I started my first business while I was still in college in the late 90s.  It was a learning experience that I have carried with me in every aspect of my practice and current businesses.  Doing anything your way takes dedication, strategy, and perseverance.

With this background, and as a clerk for the Honorable William A. Maddox, I was acutely aware of the financial and emotional toll that conflict has on a business and an individual/family, and seek to minimize those affects through proper planning.

My business background and education applies to everyday situations, because if it does not make money, it does not make sense.  While there are certainly projects aimed for emotional gratification, such as my pro bono projects and non-profit work, the goal at the end of the day is to have funds for you and your family.”
