About Me

image31

 Compassionate.  Caring.  Understanding.


I grew up a military brat, and moved several times before returning to my mother's hometown in Holly Pond, Alabama.  After finishing high school at Holly Pond High School, I moved to Tuscaloosa, where I attended the University of Alabama as a Telecommunications and Film major.  After graduation from the University of Alabama, I went on to have a successful career in television news working at stations in Alabama and Georgia.  In 2002, I married a soldier in the United States Army.  Shortly thereafter, my family and I moved to Huntsville in 2003 after my then husband was medically discharged from the Army due to the injuries he sustained during Operation Enduring Freedom.  I had to help my then husband fight for his VA disability benefits.  From my own experience, I understand just what military families and veterans go through when a soldier is injured.  I also understand the unique family issues that today's military families face.


For years, I was a stay at home mom of three who worked freelance jobs in sports media and publicity.  I wanted to attend law school, but the time just never seemed just right.  Shortly after the birth of my third child, I began to attend law school at Birmingham School of Law.  Shortly after starting law school, my then husband and I separated and divorce proceedings began.  I continued my legal education, driving to and from Birmingham three to five times a week.  With help from my mother, family, and friends, I was able to finish a four year program in three years.  I finished cum laude, and in the top 8 percent of my law school class.  I was certified by the Alabama State Bar shortly thereafter. 


I am committed to providing not only expert legal services to my clients, but I am very committed to providing excellent customer service.  I never want my clients to ever feel like they are just another file on my desk or that their problems do not matter, because they do.  I know what it is like for an attorney not to return an important phone call, and I am committed to making sure all of my client's calls and emails are returned in a timely manner.  I know just how difficult the legal process can be and I am there to help you through it every step of the way.  I have handled hundreds of cases.  Clients trust me with the most important things to them -- their families, their children, their financial well-being, and their freedom.  I do not take that trust lightly at all, and feel abundantly blessed that God has put me in the position to help people and to make a difference in someone's life.
