The people who need you are underdogs. People who aren’t being treated fairly. People who need help from someone that truly cares and really understands rights and issues.
— Jennifer, a client

I don't need to raise my voice to be heard.

I have the credibility with adversaries and judges needed to get things done. 

I regularly appear in courts throughout the state and in front of the Supreme Court of Georgia, where I argue appeals in the most serious criminal cases. I am also an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law, host a podcast about appellate practice, and maintain comprehensive resources on this website for other lawyers.

I have a law degree from the University of Georgia, where I was one of ten students from my law school class inducted into the Order of the Barristers and was a pupil in the Joseph Henry Lumpkin Inn of Court.

I have superb reviews. I am rated 10/10 by Avvo, rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell, and have been selected as a Rising Star in Georgia SuperLawyers and a Legal Elite in Georgia Trend magazine. My professional accomplishments speak for themselves.

I devote substantial time to pro bono work, including representing prisoners under federal sentence seek reductions in their sentences with Clemency Project 2014, fighting charges filed against peaceful protesters in the Occupy Atlanta and other social justice movements, and litigating on behalf of indigent plaintiffs with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (where I won the largest verdict ever obtained by the organization).

I would love to see if I can help you.
