It’s always better to consider legal contingencies before they occur, but often we do not. If your family has a relationship with an attorney that they can trust, planning will come natural, much like asking your family doctor to do an occasional check-up. Medicine has long learned the value of preventative care; you can do the same for your legal life.
With a background in criminal law, family business, and adoption as well as divorce litigation, I have the knowledge and skills to assist you through various family matters. Read more about my journey and how my experience can help you today.
I graduated cum laude from Middle Tennessee State University and decided to pursue my law degree after working with my family business for several years. I was accepted into the Nashville School of Law and served as a student representative for the law school. During my time as a law student, I served as a law clerk for Judge Hamilton Gayden.
After graduating with my J.D. in 1994, I immediately went to work at the Davidson County District Attorney’s office prosecuting domestic violence and other violent crimes. In 1997, I decided to go into private practice and have built that practice to now include a team that works together to serve your needs.
After working a few years for the District Attorney's office, my entrepreneurial spirit kicked into high gear. I desired the independence that founding my own legal practice could provide, and followed that instinct to open LawCare - Family Law Center.
In developing my practice over the last 20+ years, I have brought together a team to handle your legal needs. Every day, I work closely with my associate attorneys to keep the entire firm’s mission consistent. Our goal is to provide competent, detailed, and compassionate legal services to those in need. When selecting associates, I look for those who have succeeded academically and have the temperament to handle tough legal issues.
