In 1988, I graduated from Emory College with a Bachelor's of Science in Economics and Political Science. Like most college students, I didn't know exactly where my degree would lead at the time. All I knew was that I wanted to make a difference in the world in a big way. Following my heart and my head, I figured I could achieve that goal working in the public, private, or non-profit sector. Maybe business is where the road would lead (hence the double major), or even journalism.
During my time as a student, I learned life lessons that I never saw coming. Simple things like interacting in a diverse community, and analyzing research in a manner that challenged me to think critically about how society at large works — all became a big part of my educational experience. By the time it was my turn to walk across the stage and receive my diploma, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to be an attorney. For me, it wasn't only about finding a lucrative career that aligned with my passions and education. It was also about doing something that resonated with my core desire for helping others. As a personal injury attorney, there's nothing that fits me more.
After graduating from Emory, I went on to Mercer University School of Law and earned my Juris Doctor from the school in 1995. I was admitted to the Georgia bar that same year and began practicing law right away. I gained valuable insight and honed my skills by working with other firms and partners, but ultimately I wanted to open my own firm — which I did in 2005.
With me, love is spelled t-i-m-e. That means I’ll give you the one-on-one, personal attention you and your case need to receive optimal results.
