I graduated from Vanderbilt University School of Law and returned to my hometown to practice law. After being an associate and partner in a medium size law firm for several years, I went out on my own. I have a general practice which is now almost exclusively civil and deals primarily with corporate business and real property matters as well as some collections. I also represent small businesses, some of which have grown to become national and international in scope.
