Screenshot_33.pngI grew up in rural west Tennessee small towns. My parents divorced when I was very young and I moved to Memphis as a young man to finish high school and start Memphis State University. While I initially was an engineering major, I also ended up working in the legal department for an investment and banking firm as a litigation consultant. In conjunction with that experience, I had evolved into becoming a paralegal for different law firms and corporate legal departments. When I experienced the legal system as a party to my own divorce, my dissatisfaction with the family law process, along with my work experience, led me to naturally consider transition to becoming an attorney. With my being a child of divorced parents and going through my own divorce, I developed a particular empathy for and desire to help people going through those situations. I also answered a patriotic calling to serve in the U.S. Army Reserves. My military service included nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare noncommissioned officer training. I was a squad leader in both boot camp and advanced training, as well as a communications section leader with a top-secret military clearance. After I attending Crichton College where I earned by business degree in Memphis, I moved to St. Petersburg working for the City of Tampa’s legal department, with a hope of attending law school . Very shortly after my arrival, Stetson University College of Law initiated a four-year part-time evening program, of which I was part of the very first evening class. I worked during the day and went to law school at night, often joking that the hard work was like “doing time” that I finished in three and a half years.
