Born and raised near Detroit, Michigan, my journey south was through the five-string banjo. The bluegrass music has never stopped, and I found that helping musicians is one of the most rewarding aspects of working in Music City.
My practice is dedicated to representing individuals and businesses in a wide variety of legal matters. I cut his teeth in criminal courtrooms, defending individuals accused of everything from DUI and Simple Possession to First Degree Murder. This representation often requires purposeful courtroom advocacy, and I consider myself a trial lawyer first and foremost. As a graduate of the Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys Trial College, I view the ability to understand and convey a client’s story as one of the most important jobs of a courtroom advocate. This holistic approach to advocacy is present in all stages of a case, from the initial client meeting to the final closing argument.
My clients have many diverse needs, and my wide and varied experience serves them well. I have cultivated a substantial family law practice helping people navigate the difficult and often turbulent avenues of divorce, child custody, or post-divorce issues. Crisp attention to detail has also proven an asset in both simple and complex civil litigation–from landlord-tenant disputes to personal injury cases to real estate conflicts to business dissolution actions to corporate fraud claims. In plaintiff’s and defense work, I has found that creativity, communication, and diligence are the key ingredients to obtaining favorable results for my clients.
Through the years I have also honed my skills as a writer. I have extensive experience in complex motion practice and have maintained an active appellate practice, handling complex appeals of both civil and criminal matters, as well as requests for post-judgment relief. Most notably, I was part of the team that represented John Jay Hooker in his lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of “aid-in-dying,” or assisted suicide.
I also provides litigation support and assistance for attorneys and law firms who need additional “hands on deck” in large and complex matters. I frequently perform research, drafting, consultation, and other work as the needs of the case require.
I am licensed to practice in both State and Federal Court, and am familiar with courtrooms all over Middle Tennessee. I seek to help individuals and businesses address their legal needs in a wide variety of matters. Service is the number one priority of the Brand Law Office, and it is my goal to tailor solutions to the individual needs of each and every client.
