I grew up in Nashville, attending Eakin Elementary, Caldwell Middle, and Hillsboro High Schools. Along the way, I think I've been to almost every music venue and recording studio in town. In my life, I have been a stepchild and a stepfather; I endured a divorce, but am now married again with children of my own. While at Hillsboro I received the Ed Hessey award (ask me). After spending five great years in college during the Payton Manning years, I graduated from U.T. (Knoxville) in 1997, and went to work in Nashville and Charleston, South Carolina for the trucking division of the world’s largest international shipping and logistics company. After three years in the real world, I went back to school, and received my law degree in 2003 from the University of South Carolina. While there I clerked for a local law firm and worked on the student staff of the ABA Real Property, Probate, and Trust Journal. I was on the Dean's List and found time to enjoy USC. After graduation, I spent time working in a law firm and as an Assistant Public Defender before settling into my private, solo, practice in 2007. My primary focus is family and domestic law, though I continue to defend criminal cases at all levels. I am currently admitted to practice in South Carolina and Tennessee.

Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I have helped protect several children from unsafe surroundings by helping family members obtain custody. I have gotten several criminal charges dismissed against good people who made mistakes.

How did you build a successful practice?
If you don't read the footnotes, your children will starve.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
In my area of practice, there are many competent attorneys, so it can often come down to relationships. A client has to be able to trust their lawyer, which also means taking their advice. If a client feels like a lawyer is not the kind of person they will listen to, they should find a lawyer whom they will listen to.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Very; each court, and each judge, has certain preferences. Knowing those can be the difference between a wasted hour, or day, and a successful trip to court.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
What to expect, how long it will take, what a client will need to gather, and how I can help.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
Names of parties, phone number, address, email, etc., also like to know client's expectations.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I grew up here, making me a bit of a 'unicorn.' I have been divorced, I was a stepchild, now I am a parent and stepparent. I can empathize with almost any family law situation someone brings to me.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The relief in a client who had given up hope before coming to me.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I like live music, hiking, sailing, and bothering my children.

Are you involved in your community?
Yes; mostly through my kids, but I also take part in local events and organizations.

  • IN RE Diawn B.
    This appeal arises from an action for grandparent visitation. The child’s father died when she was seven weeks old, and when the mother denied visitation to the paternal grandmother, the paternal grandmother filed a petition for grandparent visitation. After a trial, the court determined that the mother opposed visitation, the presumption of substantial harm was not overcome, and grandparent visitation was in the child’s best interests. The court ordered grandparent visitation the third weekend of each month, Thanksgiving break in odd years, every Christmas break, and every summer break. The court also gave the grandmother four of the parental rights found in Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-6-101(a)(3)(B)—the right to educational records, the right to be free from derogatory remarks, the right to be notified of medical emergencies, and the right to be notified of extracurricular activities and the opportunity to participate in or observe them. The mother filed a motion to alter or amend the judgment, and the grandmother filed a response and a motion to strike the hearsay contained in mother’s motion. Grandmother also requested attorney’s fees in connection with her motion to strike hearsay. The trial court entered an “amended” order that was substantively the same as its original decision granting grandparent visitation, and it ordered the mother to pay the grandmother’s attorney’s fees in connection with the grandmother’s motion to strike hearsay. On appeal, the mother asks this court to determine (1) whether the trial court erred “by awarding appellee grandmother a visitation schedule which is essentially a ‘tweaked’ parenting plan, along with the rights of a parent under Tennessee law,” and (2) whether the trial court erred by awarding the grandmother her attorney’s fees in opposing the mother’s motion to amend. We have determined that the extensive visitation schedule impermissibly interferes with the mother’s parental rights under the Tennessee Constitution, and therefore, it is not “reasonable” under Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-6-306(c). We have also determined that Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-6-101(a)(3)(B) is inapplicable in actions for grandparent visitation; therefore, the grandmother is not entitled to any of the rights listed in Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-6-306. Further, we have determined that the trial court erred by awarding attorney’s fees to the grandmother because we find no contractual or statutory basis for the award. Therefore, the judgment of the trial court is vacated and this matter is remanded with instructions for the trial court to establish a grandparent visitation schedule that comports with Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-6-306(c) and minimizes interference with the mother’s fundamental constitutional rights.
