About Me


I have over six years experience assisting and protecting businsses. I can help you and your organization with formation and contractual needs. I will assure that you will be protected and get what you deserve. I began my practice in Memphis, TN in 2008. Along with starting my practice, I cofounded two organizations focused on developing the Memphis entrepreneurial community and stimulating the Memphis economy: LaunchMemphis (now StartCo) and FuelFilmMemphis.


While it was a difficult choice, I moved to Norfolk, VA, due to family needs and opened my practice in downtown Norfolk, VA in 2014. I am licensed to practice in both Tennessee and Virginia.
