Biography

Like many of my clients, I was born and raised in Arkansas by a single mother. I went to high school, college and law school in Little Rock. While in law school, I developed a passion for criminal law and protecting the rights of the accused.

Since I began practicing law in 2007, I have represented hundreds of defendants from across the state of Arkansas. My clients have faced all type of charges; including, drug possession, drug trafficking, assault, battery, theft, burglary, sexual assault, rape, fraud, robbery, alcohol related offenses, fraud, domestic battery, murder and many others. I have taken criminal cases ranging from traffic tickets and misdemeanors to rape and murder to trial before both judges and juries. My client’s results included not guilty verdicts, directed verdicts, dismissals, and favorable plea deals.

My criminal practice has also involved post-conviction representation and probation and parole issues; such as, probation revocation, early release from probation, and parole hearings. Additionally, I have helped people seal their criminal records so that they can secure employment and enjoy many of the rights they enjoyed prior to a conviction. Guilty or innocent, I stand ready to be your voice.
