In addition to handling business litigation and appellate litigation, my practice focus involves solving problems for lawyers. Over the years, I have represented lawyers and law firms in disciplinary matters, litigation, and other matters involving professional liability. I have also served as an expert witness in matters in federal and state courts in Tennessee.
