For over 28 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.
I was Chair of the Federal Practice Section of the Birmingham Bar Association for the 2015-2016 term. I served as Chair of the Alabama State Bar Environmental Law Section for the 2010-2011 term.
I am AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell and a Senior Fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America Trial Lawyer Honorary. I am also listed in Mid-South Super Lawyers (Environmental Litigation) and in Best Lawyers in America (Litigation-Environmental, Natural Resources Law, and Commercial Litigation).
At Cumberland School of Law of Samford University, I was Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review, and, after graduation, I was inducted into Curia Honoris and received the Dean's Certificate of Appreciation.
