Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
In March of 2013 I went to trial on an aggravated assault case in Fulton County (Atlanta) Georgia. Prior to trial, I attempted everything I could but the prosecutor would not budge from her ten year recommendation for prison time. I knew my client was innocent and that the alleged "victims" were lying. I was able to subpoena cell phone records from the phone company of the alleged "victims" and caught them both in lies on the witness stand. I also used Facebook evidence to catch the witnesses in lies. The Jury deliberated for one hour before returning a verdict of "not guilty" on all counts.

How did you build a successful practice?
I have built a successful practice by being available for my clients and accommodating of their needs. Everyone has a unique situation, and sometimes it may require that the attorney do things to accommodate the individual, such as working out payment plans, picking up the client for court, meeting at their house, etc.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
When looking for a lawyer, clients should always ask about similar cases the attorney has handled and the outcome of those cases. Often, people will spend thousands of dollars retaining an attorney only to be pressured by the attorney to take a plea deal in the end because the attorney is not comfortable going to trial or handling an adversarial hearing. Of course, sometimes a plea is in a client's best interest, but a client should never take a plea because the attorney is not competent to handle a trial or does not have the aggressiveness to invest the time needed to held an adversarial hearing.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge is important because every county varies on their local rules and customs. It is also helpful to be familiar with a judge. This kind of information is easily acquired, so it should not be completely determinitive of the lawyer you hire. Sometimes retaining a lawyer from an outside county is helpful in situations wherein the local attorneys have become so accustomed to their routine and knowledge of the judge that they may not be as aggressive as necessary. It all depends on your situation.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
During a free consultation I can tell the client approximately how much the case is going to cost, how long it is going to take, and begin to assist them in developing a plan of attack to help them in their situation. Whether they retain me or someone else, they will leave the consultation having a sense of direction on how the situation needs to be handled moving forward.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
Information I need during the consultation is the information on any opposing party, the county of the charges or incident, the date of the incident and the case number if they have one. If they have any paperwork on the case that is helpful as welll.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
Information I need during the consultation is the information on any opposing party, the county of the charges or incident, the date of the incident and the case number if they have one. If they have any paperwork on the case that is helpful as welll.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding part of being a lawyer is being able to help people who feel powerless and to ensure that they will not get kicked around by the system, or anyone else, as long as you are by their side.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Outside of law, I love to travel and spend time with my friends and family.

Are you involved in your community?
I am a member of the GA association of criminal defense attorneys, Cobb County Bar association, and Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

I strive to provide more of a human element to the legal profession than many attorneys. I give every client my cell phone number and provide a level of acessibility and empathy in your legal situation that you will not be charged for. When the situation calls for it, I fight for my clients as if they are members of my own family. Sometimes, I have to make my clients understand that the situation may require an approach that calls for comprimise and negotiation. The circumstances and governing law control every unique situation, and no two stories are exactly alike. Whether you need a fighter or a peace maker, I can balance both roles. I also believe that legal services should be attainable for everyone. It is an investment, but too often attorneys quote fees that would make wealthy individuals cringe. I strive to work with people within their budget to achieve a result that will improve their lives. My background includes four years as a United States Marine, six years as an Atlanta Police Officer, and I am currently a criminal defense attorney and the mother of 4 energetic children.
