About me

I grew up in a small rural community in Northeast Arkansas. After high school I attended Arkansas State University where I was member of the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society and member/ rush chairman of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. There, I obtained my B.A. in English in 2007 before receiving an academic scholarship to attend law school at Barry University in Orlando, Florida.

I completed my final year of law school in 2010 at UALR in Little Rock before being admitted to practice law in Arkansas in 2011. I began my career as a solo practitioner before taking a position in the foreclosure department of Wilson and Associates in Little Rock. In early 2014 I moved to the Fort Smith area to take a full-time position as deputy public defender in Crawford County. The majority of my caseload was in areas of felony defense and juvenile court where I represented over a thousand court-appointed clients. The experience gained from the countless bond hearings, motion hearings and bench and jury trials was extremely valuable in developing my skills and knowledge as a criminal defense attorney.

If you spend every day doing what you love then I don’t really consider it work. I started this office in the hopes of helping my clients get to a better place in life. We all go through times where we need a helping hand. Whether you walk into my office needing help in the area of criminal defense, maybe you have divorce questions or other legal issues, I’m here to help.

Throughout my years of practice I’ve been dedicated to my clients and devoted to helping them obtain the best possible outcome to their legal matters. I’m available day or night and will take the time to meet with clients after hours and on weekends. If you want an attorney who will represent you zealously and is available when you need him, please contact me for a free consultation.
