Gary began his career as a commercial litigator but quickly moved into product liability defense. He has represented automobile, building material, and construction equipment manufacturers. From 2005 to 2010, Gary was lead counsel representing a consortium of automobile manufacturers. He and his team successfully litigated and resolved over 20,000 product liability claims pending in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Louisiana.

In late 2010, Gary's practice migrated back to business and tort litigation. He has represented pharmaceutical companies, commercial construction subcontractors, venture capital groups, large law firms, non-profits, and insurers. He has represented individuals including white collar criminal defendants, professional athletes, entertainers, record labels, and personal injury clients. In 2019, Gary was engaged by Roc Nation, an entity owned by Jay Z, to pursue civil rights claims on behalf of inmates at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. He continues to work pro bono in support of reform efforts at Parchman. 

Gary is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and Mississippi College School of Law. In 1996, he was awarded one of two internships in the United States Attorney's Office (MSSD), where he prosecuted federal cases through trial. Thereafter, he served as law clerk to the Honorable Henry T. Wingate, United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. Gary is admitted to practice in Mississippi, Texas and Tennessee.

Gary holds a commercial pilot certificate with multi-engine and instrument ratings. He has been happily married for 24 years and has three sons, ages 22, 20, and 14.
