I will fight for your rights.
I specialize in the following:
* Personal Injury cases
* Criminal Defense (former assistant district attorney)
* Domestic Law
* Social Security Disability
I have a very large office (more than 4,400 square feet) on the main thoroughfare through Jackson, TN (my hometown). I've been in practice for well over 20 years. I've handled Tennessee's largest mass murder case, countless first-degree murder cases, including multiple death penalty and capital cases and have won many of the seemingly unwinnable murder cases. I have also won cases in all other areas I have described such as an injury case against the best insurance defense lawyer in this area who offered a nuisance value (twice) of $1,000 but left the court acting like a baby after the verdict was returned in my favor for over $50,000. It was not a lot of money; however, I think it is a good example of how the thousands of jury trials in criminal defense prepared me for injury cases which are far easier to win.
I offer attention to detail and application of strategic analysis to each element of each case while always attempting to appear (only appear) a bit behind the curve, so to speak, prior to trial and even, if applicable, during trial such as a scratch of the head and an appearance of bumbling a bit, shuffling through documents, etc., and then asking a question (but actually stated as my belief in what a witness stated, more like a statement of my recollection of what the witness said earlier, i.e. "I'm sorry, but I didn't catch all of what you said when you answered opposing counsel's question regarding , but if I am not incorrect, you said . It was restated with a slight, tiny twist of difference and presented in a way in which 99% of the witnesses will agree who will then, almost without error, fail to realize their contradictory answer, etc., and the significance of the impact of this difference until later.
All of these strategies I employ in trials and negotiations are to simply catch witnesses off guard, to catch attorneys by surprise (as they almost invariably also fail to realize the difference in my question and the witness' answer until it's too late) and to allow ego to not get in the way of accomplishing the best possible result for my client such as allowing the opposing party, attorney or witnesses to believe that they are getting the best of me, etc. but doing so with humility as a part of my completely intentional strategy to assist in winning the case for my client. I could go on and on, but I think I've said enough, and the results I've had speak for themselves.
Most attorneys never even try a murder case, but I've won numerous acquittals in the multiple murder cases I've trialed. I reference murder cases because the stakes are so incredibly high that trying other jury or bench trials are easy compared to the stress and what is on the line for my client in such cases. I have always believed, earlier in my career, that if I could win first-degree murder cases in jury trials, it would be easy to transfer the tasctics, knowledge, strategies, etc., to civil law such as injury law.Now, after well over two decades of practice, I've found this to be true repeatedly. Hopefully, I've said enough.
