Over 25 years experience in varied practice areas including Baldwin and Mobile County Bankruptcy services (Chapters 7 and 13), Baldwin and Mobile County divorce, family law and child support, criminal practice in Baldwin and Mobile Counties (with trials in all Courts), business and corporate law (on a Statewide basis and including securities law and mergers and acquisitions) and personal injury for Baldwin and Mobile Counties (including auto, property, and personal injury) and other actions resulting in injuries to the person or a person’s business reputation (for example, intentional interference with business or contractual relations).
To utilize over 25 years experience in such varied matters as bankruptcy, complex civil litigation, securities and corporate law, criminal trials, and personal injuries at reasonable rates. My low overhead allows me to charge prices that are often much lower than comparable services from less experienced attorneys. I am dedicated to rendering personal service to my clients and am readily available by phone to discuss your case. You will not be handed off to support personnel. The practice of law is a privilege and I treat it like a privilege, not a means to become wealthy. See Testimonials
