Practice/Organization Description

I am a business litigation attorney who is passionate about giving my clients strong and effective legal representation. I know the importance of smart, frank, and cost-effective counsel—I grew up in a family of business owners and over the years have run a few companies myself. From highly complex litigation to simple collection work, I have the experience and attention to detail that generates results. At Sodoma Law, I represent business owners in a range of practice areas, including contract disputes, collection matters, landlord tenant law, real estate disputes, new business start-up, contract drafting, and just about every type of civil litigation you can imagine.

In the past I have represented multi-national homebuilders against class action drywall contamination claims, assisted numerous clients with complex breach of contract claims, tried insurance coverage and damage claims, and represented hundreds of businesses in economic loss claims after environmental disasters. In addition to litigation, my general business practice includes setting up new businesses, drafting contracts including service and licensing agreements, and filing copyright claims to protect intellectual property rights.

If bringing a lawsuit is necessary, I will work tirelessly to fight for your cause. Through the initial filing of the suit, discovery, trial, and even appeal, I will keep you updated on the status of your case and what you should expect in the future. And even though I am a trial attorney by trade, I know not every dispute is best solved through litigation. If a settlement can be reached without a lawsuit, I will work towards crafting an agreement that makes you whole again.

While some attorneys are impossible to reach and seemingly always out of the office, I – along with my Sodoma Law colleagues – pride myself on giving each of my clients the individualized attention and personalized service they deserve. If your best efforts at solving a business dispute have failed, drop by the Sodoma Law office and we can talk about the most direct – and timely – path towards a resolution.

I found a home with Sodoma Law after moving to Charlotte to be closer to family. Previously, I practiced in Florida with a large firm and later opened up my own solo practice. Contact me at Sodoma Law today to discuss any legal questions you may have, and let our resources and dedication to client satisfaction work for you.
