I have practiced law in the southern counties of Mississippi for over forty years, have represented plaintiffs and defendants and insurance carriers in trials in County, Circuit, and Supreme Court of Mississippi, Federal District Courts and Fifth Circuit Court Of Appeals, and have a wide background in Chancery Court cases.

I have been on the Mississippi Bar's list of mediators since its inception and additionally on the Federal Court list for both the Northern and Southern District of Mississippi. Following Hurricane Katrina I was on the list of approved mediators for AAA and served as a mediator on the Department of Insurance Mediation Program for the State of Mississippi. I have also served the United States District Court as a mediator for "Katrina" litigation cases since the inception of that program. I have served as mediator in a combination of Katrina cases, state and federal litigation cases, and other private cases totaling approximately 2,000 cases. I have also served as Special Master for the United States District Court, Southern District of Mississippi.

The areas of my heaviest concentration for practice and mediation have been in the following fields: personal injury law; wrongful death; medical and hospital law; legal, medical, and other professional malpractice; insurance contract disputes; insurance law; employment law; nursing home litigation; and real estate, probate, and Chancery Court family law.
