Criminal Defense Law including Marijuana, DUI, Drug Felony and Misdemeanor offenses.
Professional Background: I became a lawyer licensed by the State of Tennessee in 1998. I have been sworn in before both the Tennessee and the United States Supreme Courts. I also have been appointed numerous times to be a Special Judge in the Davidson County General Sessions Court to hear criminal cases and as a Special District Attorney General on several unique crimes after my service as an Assistant District Attorney General.
Experience: I started my legal career as a state licensed investigator. Becoming a prosecutor was both the best and the worst job. As an Assistant District Attorney General for several years, I gained real insight into how our criminal justice system works. This was the best real world school. I stormed a house with a team of officers, went to various violent crime scenes, and a host of other things not done in any other job. I worked with members of the FBI, ATF, U.S. Attorney’s Office, TBI and local law enforcement officers.
I have been from the east to the west side of this state representing many different people from all walks of life and I am a member of the Tennessee Bar Association. As an advocate, I know you have to be aggressive to get your side to be heard. A lawyer has to be ready for anything. I fight for my clients. I do what I have to do to get the job done.
I am the current President of Tennessee NORML (The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) and have been since 2012.
