Education and Background

I was born and raised in shadow of the Blue Ridge mountains in South Carolina. I went to college at the University of Texas at Austin, where I graduated with honors in 1998. As much as I loved Texas, I felt the need to continue west to law school at the University of California at Berkeley (Boalt Hall), where I received my law degree in 2002. During that time, I clerked for Chief Justice Veasey of the Delaware Supreme Court and co-authored “Computer Security Publications: Information Economics, Shifting Liability and the First Amendment” (Whittier Law Review, Vol. 24, No. 1).

Legal Experience

After law school, I worked at a large international firm defending corporate interests. While that was an invaluable experience, I also learned that the big firm lifestyle was not for me. During that time, I personally took on the role of lead plaintiff in three large (and successful) consumer class actions, which ultimately led to my decision to leave Big Law and devote myself to plaintiffs-side work.

Now my practice is dedicated exclusively to representing individual plaintiffs against large corporations, unscrupulous employers, and anyone who seeks to defraud members of the public. My career on both sides of the courtroom has given me the experience and perspective to confidently advocate for my clients. I am passionate about my work and the feeling I get working for the good guys and being on the right side of the law.
