I have served the Middle Tennessee area for 36 years representing people injured by the negligence of others and especially car and truck collisions.  I understand their needs, worries, fears, financial loses and most of all I understand the pain and suffering they are enduring due to the carelessness of someone else.  I understand their worries about losing their job, not being able to work, and bills piling up. That’s what motivates me to do everything I can to win their case
