I am a native of South Carolina, born and raised in Columbia. I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina Law School. While in law school, I clerked for the Fifth Circuit Solicitor’s office.
After graduating from law school I accepted a commission as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and served in the Miami, Florida division. In 1980 I moved to Charleston and accepted a position as an assistant solicitor with the Ninth Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office.
I was the Charleston City Prosecutor for three years thereafter, and during a period of time encompassing Hurricane Hugo, was the Isle of Palms Municipal Judge.
I was active in the formation of the South Carolina Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
During my career, I have presented lectures to other lawyers at Continuing Legal Education Seminars in Columbia, South Carolina; Litchfield Beach, South Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; Las Vegas, Nevada; Greenville, South Carolina; Hilton Head, South Carolina, and other locations. Click here for a list of speaking appearances.
I am founding member of the National College of DUI Defense.
I have represented clients in five death penalty cases. In those cases, I was appointed by General Sessions Court Judges in Dorchester, Calhoun and Beaufort Counties.
For a criminal defense lawyer, nothing is more serious than a death penalty case. Rarely does a person accused of crime punishable by death have the financial resources to cover the costs and fees of representation for such a serious trial proceeding. Fortunately, our state has established procedures for a lawyer to be appointed to represent persons accused of a capital offense.
I have argued before the United States Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the South Carolina Court of Appeals. Being certified by the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification, I am permitted to represent myself as a specialist in Criminal Trial Advocacy. There are currently only four attorneys in South Carolina who have sought and achieved that certification.
