I am a consumer justice attorney in Birmingham, Alabama. I enjoy helping people solve their problems, and I have been doing this for 18 years. A majority of our cases involve injuries, but we have handled various types of claims through the years.
I am part of a family of five, and we have three children beginning to enter their teenage years. I spend most of my time having fun with them and their activities: dance, football, basketball, baseball, tennis, and golf.
In my spare time, I enjoy jogging, spinning, tennis, golf, movies, good food, travel, books, and relaxation. Most people don't know that I have an old football card collection - before there were 10,000 card companies, and I have Donald Trump's autograph with Herschel Walker on a USFL program before Donald Trump fired people on air.
Finally, I like to contribute to the community. I'm on the Board at the Downtown YMCA, and we annually participate in the Strong Kids Campaign to help children participate in summer camp and after school programs. I have been involved in raising money for several charitable organizations. I enjoy volunteering with United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Birmingham, and our firm regularly contributes a portion of our fees to Children's Hospital, Hand in Paw, Kid One Transport, and UCP of Greater Birmingham.
