During my time as a criminal prosecutor, I gained invaluable insight into the way prosecutors and law enforcement professionals think. I even learned how to perform wiretaps and investigate a case the way a police officer would. As you can imagine, this kind of insider knowledge is extremely useful when it comes to defending people under criminal investigation. Still, I knew I could do even more to help others facing legal challenges, and so I decided to expand my practice to include civil law cases, as well.
Civil law is a huge field of practice, so it’s important for your attorney to be flexible. Although I can handle just about any kind of civil case you bring to my door, these are the case types with which I have had some of the greatest success in recent years:
- Products liability claims. As a law student, I took a strong interest in this topic and studied it closely under a professor who worked exclusively on these types of personal injury cases. Perhaps that’s why I’ve had so much success helping clients get paid for the harmful and defective products they’ve encountered.
- Wrongful death claims. To successfully resolve a wrongful death claim, your attorney has to be both empathetic toward you and aggressive toward the person or people responsible for your loved one’s death. My clients appreciate my ability to balance these two necessities.
- Whistleblower cases. People throughout Georgia and South Carolina have come to me after discovering that their employers violated the False Claims Act. I have been able to not only protect them from retaliation, but also to get them compensated for reporting the incident.
As I look to the future, I envision a wide range of other civil law cases coming my way. No matter how challenging or complex those cases may be, I look forward to each opportunity to make my clients’ lives a little easier.
As much as I love the Augusta, Georgia community, I decided years ago that I would do everything I can to offer excellent legal service to as many people in need as possible. That’s why I’m licensed to practice in so many courts throughout Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
