I am a trial lawyer who has proudly worked with Morris Bart for 30 years making our community safer. As the senior litigator and managing attorney for the Mississippi division of our law firm, I have taken nearly 40 cases to trial and have made it my mission to hold wrongdoers responsible for the consequences of their actions. I am specifically focused on compensating those who have suffered a catastrophic injury as the result of safety rule violators.
I stress quality representation through Focus Group and Mock Trials using our own practice courtroom and have mentored a generation of young firm lawyers in litigation excellence. Over the past decade, I have also taught lawyers from around the country how to be better lawyers as a member of the faculty at the Keenan Trial Institute and as a speaker at multiple continuing education seminars.
I have been recognized by multiple national merit-based organizations and I am an AV-Rated Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell. I am also designated Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. I am a proud member of the American Inns of Court, an organization dedicated ot promoting the highest levels of professionalism in the practice of law. I am licensed to practice law in Mississippi, Florida, and Louisiana.
When I am not fighting wrongdoers and their insurers, I can be found catamaran racing in Ocean Springs, teaching Judo at my dojo, or spending time with my wife and our two boys.
