For over 27 years, I have represented clients in federal and state court trials throughout Alabama, in appeals, and in matters in the Southeast involving federal and state regulatory, investigative, and enforcement agencies.
My cases primarily involve civil and white collar criminal defense litigation, investigations, and contested administrative and professional licensing proceedings arising in environmental, health care, and business contexts. I have also had noteworthy success on behalf of corporate, institutional, and individual plaintiffs in business disputes, data security, fraud, environmental, and biotechnology cases.
