Specializing in Criminal Defense Law especially Cannabis related offenses.
Professional Background: I became a lawyer licensed by the State of Tennessee since 1998. I have been sworn in before the Tennessee and United States Supreme Courts. I’ve also been appointed several times to be 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: Becoming a prosecutor was both the best and worst job in the world. As an Assistant District Attorney General in Tennessee for several years, I gained real insight into how our criminal justice systems 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 don’t do in any other job. I worked with members of the FBI, ATF, U.S. Attorney’s Office and TBI as well as local law enforcement officers.
I have been from the east to the west side of this state representing many different people from all walk of life and am a member of the Tennessee Bar Association. As a lawyer, I know you have to be aggressive to get things done. I know you have to some places other people don’t want to go and do things others can’t. 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’m currently the President of Tennessee NORML (The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) and have been President since 2012. I believe in a smarter use of our resources to fight crime other than arresting individuals for marijuana possession.
