I provide high quality legal representation that is also affordable. I serve clients throughout the Upper Cumberland and Sequatchie Valley, including Clay County, Grundy County, Putnam County, Van Buren County, and White County.
Appellate advocacy is my favorite area of the law. If you have a criminal or civil appeal in any area of the state and you’re looking to hire an attorney, please contact me. Private appeals range from $2,000 to $10,000, depending on complexity and whether oral argument is needed. I also gladly take appointed appeals.
If you are an attorney that would rather focus your time and energy on other areas of the law, I may be able to take over your appeal or help you with drafting it.
Most of my experience is in criminal law. In law school, I interned with the District Attorney’s Office in Nashville and the Public Defender’s Office in Franklin. I also was President of the Belmont Criminal Law Society. After law school, I’ve handled DUI, drug, theft, domestic, and assault cases. For general sessions criminal cases in counties that I regularly cover, I charge as little as $250. While more complex general sessions cases and criminal court cases are more, I keep my prices competitive with market rates.
If you an attorney looking for help on a motion to suppress or motion in limine, I may be able to help you with drafting it.
Estate Planning & Probate
Simple wills and powers of attorney cost as little as $100 per document. More complex planning, including trusts, conservatorships, and TN Choices planning, is also available. If a loved one has passed away and you need an attorney to probate your estate, please contact me for more information.
I enjoy handling Unruly and Delinquent, Dependent and Neglect, and Termination of Parental Rights cases. My approach to these cases varies by county because case management procedures and court administrative practices differ considerably among counties. In juvenile cases, I am very “hands-on,” staying in regular contact with DCS and my clients to see exactly what needs to be done to get the best result for my client.
Your case is important to you; it should be important to your lawyer. I give my cell phone number to my clients and often take calls outside of business hours.
