Areas of Practice

With over 30 years of Experience

Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse have reached agreement on all issues, including child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution of property, and debt allocation, we offer an easy low-cost option to a prolonged and expensive adversarial divorce.

Contested Divorce

I encourage all my clients to exhaust every opportunity to amicably settle their divorce case if possible. An uncontested divorce is generally less expensive and less time-consuming. It is a simpler procedure.

Probate Estate Administration

Probate is a legal proceeding necessary to administer certain kinds of property owned by the decedent, to confirm that claims, expenses, and taxes are properly paid, and to ensure that the remaining estate is distributed to those entitled to receive it under the decedent’s will, or Tennessee intestacy law if someone dies without a will.

Criminal Law

Whether you have been arrested for a felony or misdemeanor offense, the stakes are high. Your rights, liberty and future are on the line. When facing the criminal justice system, the odds are stacked against the accused. An experienced defense lawyer can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. I work closely with each client to develop a defense strategy tailored to their specific goals and priorities.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

The majority of bankruptcy cases are filed under Chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code. Chapter 7 bankruptcy provides an opportunity for those experiencing serious issues to get a fresh start through the elimination of most if not all, debt. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is best suited for those who are having difficulty paying their credit card bills, or medical bills, or who are dealing with a wage garnishment or lawsuit.
