WHY I BELIEVE IN WHAT I DO

While growing up, I had the opportunity to travel all around the world. My father is a minister, whose work took him to many different countries. We lived in the Philippines for six years, Canada for almost two years, and we have visited Holland, France, Venezuela, Trinidad & Tobago, and Grenada. As a child, my sister and I would watch and listen with fascination as Dad showed us slides and photos from his trips to still more exotic places.

During my travels, I have met a lot of people from many cultures. My experiences have taught me that despite some cultural differences, people are essentially the same. No matter what we look like, or what language we speak, we want ourselves and our families to be healthy, and to be able to enjoy life.

Before I ever thought of becoming a lawyer, my friends and I would fume over lawsuits we heard about on the news. I would shake my head over some that made the news, and I would wonder: What are they thinking? What happened to common sense and personal responsibility?

I haven't changed. However, there are many "righteous cases" in Georgia that never make it on TV or the newspaper. Frequently, people need help when injured and forced to deal with an insurance company or large business that has money, lawyers, and power. Every day, people are hurt, people are wronged, people are victimized. Every day, someone--be it an individual or a giant corporation--gets away with it, because the victim does not have the knowledge, the resources, or the will to fight back.

Sometimes, the only thing that can make a bad actor change their behavior is a lawsuit. Thanks to lawyers, dangerous car designs have been changed, harmful products pulled off the market, polluters have been stopped, and entire industries have been forced to account for the harm they have done. And in the process, countless victims have received some measure of compensation for what they have suffered.

These things have inspired me; but the truth is, along with my Christian faith, my family is the most important part of my life. My mother was born in Panama, and speaks fluent Spanish. My father was born on the Caribbean island of Grenada. My little sister recently received a doctorate in Psychology. My wife was born in the Bahamas of Haitian parents, and is also an attorney. Together, they have shaped my view of the world.

This is who I am, and this is what I want to do. I want to help people who find themselves in bad situations. Whether someone is facing an insurance company unwilling to pay, a former business partner trying to defraud them, or for some other reason needs someone to fight for them, I want to help. That is why I am a plaintiff's lawyer.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

When May a Debtor in Possession (DIP) Sell or Lease Property of the Estate? a Dualistic Approach Requiring Business Justification and Balancing of the Interests of the Debtor, Creditors, and Equity Ho
In response to a $140 million judgment Hulk Hogan, known legally as Terrence Bollea, obtained against, inter alia, Gawker Media, LLC (“Gawker”) and its founder and erstwhile CEO Nicholas G.A. Denton in connection with Mr. Bollea’s allegations that Gawker damaged him by publicizing a video depicting Mr. Bollea and the wife of his friend engaged in sexual intercourse, Mr. Denton filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy case seeking to discharge his personal obligations arising from the judgment and other debts. See In re Nicholas G.A. Denton, Case No. 16-12239 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).
Equitable Subordination
Bankruptcy courts are special courts. They are neither Article III courts (Northern Pipeline Constr. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. 50 (1982)) nor their adjuncts (Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. 462 (2011)), but nonetheless have inherent powers (Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. 1188, 1194, 571 U.S. __ (2014)) and—pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 105—certain equitable powers. This means that they have broad powers to order equitable remedies—such as specific performance—where no adequate remedy at law exists, to the extent not inconsistent with any other provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. See Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. at 1194, 571 U.S. at __. This is the backdrop against which inequitable conduct by a creditor may lead to subordination of its claim in a bankruptcy proceeding under established, codified, equitable principles. Subordination means that a claim, by judicial decree, is lowered, in whole or part, in priority relative to its ordinary position in respect of one or more other claims.
