I love that my job gives me the chance to make an immediate, personal, and life-changing difference for my clients.  I am a crusader, and the fact that I get to go to “battle” each day for my clients against the promise-breaking insurance companies who are mistreating them makes going to work each day something I look forward to.  I know it sounds cliché, but finding a way to get the very best result possible for my clients is something I am passionate about.

I have been fortunate to work with and learn from excellent attorneys throughout my career and that experience has helped me become the attorney I am today.  I am proud to be a trial attorney and am happy to have had significant successes in trying cases for both juries and to judges.  I also enjoy the challenge and strategy involved in legal briefing and making appeal arguments and have been able to make arguments that have changed the law to help my clients.  I am a nerd at heart and, whether working on a trial or a legal brief, I am driven to find new arguments or find better ways of making old arguments to give my clients the edge.

I also enjoy technology (an opaque way of saying I am a nerd) and learned computer coding in order to develop Job Sleuth, an iPhone app for disability attorneys and vocational consultants that takes a huge amount of information about jobs and makes it easy to access, search, and browse. Making Job Sleuth started out as a fun hobby, but working through the information I put into it gave me a much deeper understanding of the many occupational issues that come up in disability claims and I have become a better attorney because of it.

Outside of my job, I enjoy spending most of my time with my wife and four kids.  Though I do not have too much free time outside of work and family, I would probably spend any of it I come by in reading fiction, playing strategy games, or playing sports like golf, hockey, ping pong, or foosball.

As a quick biography, I got my Bachelor of Arts degree, Summa Cum Laude, at Bryan College, in Dayton, Tennessee.  While at Bryan, I was a scholarship baseball player, starting as both pitcher and third baseman.  I studied law at the University of Tennessee College of Law, where I earned my Doctor of Jurisprudence degree.
