I am a personal injury lawyer practicing in Lynchburg, Virginia. I help people recover from their injuries so that they can resume living a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.
I have been recognized by Virginia Super Lawyers Magazine as a 2016 Rising Star, Top 40 under 40 by the American Association of Legal Advocates, Top 100 Civil Plaintiff’s Lawyers in Virginia by the The National Trial Lawyers, and 10.0 Rating by AVVO.
I live in Lynchburg with my wife Kelly, our three children, and our miniature dachshund. I am an active member of Thomas Road Baptist Church and the Oikos LifeGroup. I was born in Richmond, Virginia and I moved to Lynchburg in 2001. I graduated from Liberty University in 2005 and graduated from Liberty University School of Law in 2008. After working at a small law firm in Lynchburg, Virginia for 7 years, I decided to start my own personal injury and civil litigation law firm in 2017.
I have handled numerous civil cases of varying complexity. Primarily focusing on personal injury litigation, my practice includes car accidents, accidents caused by drunk drivers, dog bite cases, malpractice, motorcycle accidents, nursing home injuries, pedestrian accidents, products liability, tractor trailer accidents, wrongful death, and workers compensation cases.
I bring productive, skilled, and detailed representation to every case I take. I immerse myself in each case and drive the results by intentionally pursuing my client’s objectives.
I graduated first in my class at Liberty University School of Law. During law school, I actively participated in moot court competitions and law review earning several moot court accolades and the publication of his Comment entitled “Not-So-Equitable-Liens: ERISA Fiduciaries Cross-Dress Legal Remedies as Equitable,” which is all about how health insurance applies liens on personal injury recoveries.
In addition, I contributed to the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section’s 2008 Annual Review of Securities Regulation with a short portion entitled “Exemption of Compensatory Employee Stock Options From Registration Under Section 12(G) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.”
I also worked tirelessly to research and edit Professor Rodney D. Chrisman’s law review article entitled “Stoneridge v. Scientific-Atlanta: Do Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 Require a Misstatement or Omission?”
I earned the Advocates Award signifying outstanding achievement in appellate advocacy and the Roger C. Bern Planning Award for outstanding achievement in legal drafting, planning, and problem solving. After graduating from law school, I clerked for the Honorable William G. Petty on the Court of Appeals of Virginia where I was responsible for drafting both published and unpublished legal opinions deciding cases and controversies at the appellate level.
