I am committed to helping seriously injured individuals and those in need of legal counsel.
I have focused my practice on litigation in order to help my clients maneuver through the courts and the complex legal system. When I began practicing law, my focus was on personal injury, mass torts, products liability, and medical negligence. My past projects have involved multi-jursidictional products liability litigation involving prescription drugs including Rezulin, Propulsid, Baycol, and Vioxx. This afforded me an opportunity to practice in various jurisdictions throughout the United States.
More recently, my practice has focused on both civil and criminal litigation, handling personal injury cases involving automobile accidents, tractor trailer accidents, and common motor carrier cases, as well as criminal litigation, DUI's and traffic cases. In addition, I have litigated civil RICO cases, elections law cases, numerous medical negligence cases and I represent a number of corporate clients in Metro Atlanta as general counsel and in business litigation.
I have always been an advocate for the LGBT community and for LGBT clients. Throughout my legal career I have endeavored to help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals receive fair and equal treatment in the courts and I strive to assist LGBT clients and their families make sense of a system that is not designed with them in mind.
On a personal level, I earned a B.A. at Emory and Henry College in Political Science (studying both International Relations/United States Politics) and Geography, with a minor in Philosophy and a concentration in Appalachian Studies; and received a J.D. at The Thomas M. Cooley Law School and, while there, was co-facilitator of the Gay Lesbian Transgendered Law Student Association, and a member of the Environmental Law Society, Asian Pacific American Law Students Association, and founder of the Southern Law Students Coalition.
I am admitted to practice in the State of Georgia and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
