Overview

I am an attorney in Nexsen Pruet’s Charleston office, where I focus my practice on bankruptcy and creditors’ rights. 

If there’s one word you can use to describe my approach to developing legal strategies it would have to be pragmatic.  My clients benefit from a real-world understanding of financial issues backed by logical plans for resolving tough and complex fiscal situations. 

With a practice that spans nearly three decades, I have extensive experience in debtor and creditor representation and am a certified specialist in bankruptcy and debtor-creditor law, earning specialist distinction from the South Carolina Supreme Court.  I’m also well versed in the court system of the Carolinas and am licensed to practice in all of the state and federal courts of North Carolina and South Carolina.

I am not sure I always wanted to be a lawyer, but I sure feel like I found my calling when I went to law school and certainly after I graduated.

 

Actually, my first real jobs were in the Federal Courts - first for the Supreme Court of the United States and then for the U.S District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.  Those jobs allowed me to see the law at work.  At the Supreme Court, I watched attorneys argue cases and Supreme Court Justices interpret the law and perform their constitutional duties.  At the District Court, I got to experience the judicial process from a totally different perspective - watching how the system affected the parties. Those experiences not only helped me in law school, but better prepared me to enter the profession and become the lawyer I am today.

Outside of work, I enjoy our dogs Lily and Sam.  They are Grateful Goldens' rescue dogs - brother and sister from the same litter - the "Goobers", as we like to refer to them.  They are our third and fourth adopted Golden Retrievers.  I enjoy playing and walking with them.  I also enjoy golf and other outdoor activities, even something as simple as sitting on the screen porch or deck enjoying the outdoor fireplace. Like practicing law, it feels like what I was born to do.
