Following my graduation from college I went on active duty and served as a finance officer in the army for a little under three years. Thereafter, I attended the law school at the College of William and Mary. After law school my wife and I moved to Durham, where I began practicing in a small firm. I established my own firm in 1982, and have been in private practice continuously since then.
When I first began, I worked as a general practitioner, and I handled a variety of cases, including traffic, business, criminal, real property, domestic, bankruptcy, and personal injury. For the last twenty years my practice has been primarily in the area of estate planning and estate administration.
I have served on the board of the Durham Bar, as a director and as treasurer. I have also served on the grievance committee of the Durham Bar.
I enjoy my work, and I look forward to meeting new clients and serving my current clients for many years to come.
