After 33 years experience in civil litigation with an emphasis on Landlord Tenant Law and Insurance law in Winston-Salem, N.C. , I've focused my practice on personal injury litigation and joined the Speaks Law Firm in Wilmington NC. According to Martindale.com, my peers rate me as having high legal ability with very high ethical standards. I am a member of the North Carolina State Bar and the North Carolina Bar Association. Beyond the practice of law I am a certified lay speaker in the United Methodist Church and serve as lay leader in my local congregation. I greatly enjoy hiking and kayaking and spending time with my wife of nearly 30 years, our two daughters, and two Maltese dogs.
