Description:
My Story
After graduating from Florida State University with a Juris Doctorate law degree, I became the Senior Staff Attorney to the Honorable Michael P. Baird in Clayton County, Georgia. While I was working in the Georgia court system, I had the opportunity to witness firsthand how far insurance companies would go to avoid paying those who were injured in the workplace. I thought that this behavior was disturbing. Because I wanted to use my experience and education in law to help people, I chose to defend the rights of injured individuals. In order to go to battle with big insurance companies, I’ve dedicated my practice to workers’ compensation cases.
