I was born and raised in Sweetwater, Tennessee. I have a beautiful wife who has a superstar son. They are my world.
I come from a family of hard workers. When I was growing up, both of my parents ran successful small businesses. My maternal grandparents also owned a small business in Sweetwater. My father’s mother raised 6 kids while his Dad worked for the railroad. I was able to learn first hand the value of a hard day’s work. My family taught me important values that I use everyday of my life. I am who I am today because of them.
After high school, I attended Cleveland State Community College where I played basketball. I completed my bachelor’s degree at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. I graduated with honors from the Nashville School of Law in 2009.
I am admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Tennessee. I have been a member of the Tennessee Association for Justice since 2008. In 2012, I was appointed as a Presidential Nominee to the Tennessee Association for Justice’s Board of Governors, and I currently serve on the Board today. I have been a member of the Nashville Bar Association since 2007. Beginning in 2012, I served on the board of the Nashville Bar Association Young Lawyer’s Division. I have also been a member of the American Association for Justice since 2009.
I was fortunate to be recognized as “Best of the Bar” for 2014 in the Nashville Business Journal.
