Profile

I defend individuals, businesses and insurers against lawsuits and liability claims, and assist clients in the development of strategic solutions to legal disputes and litigation risks. Since 2001, I have defended property and casualty insurers in direct actions involving large property losses, catastrophic casualty claims, complex insurance coverage questions, fraud and bad faith. I am licensed in Alabama, Mississippi and New York, and have also assisted in the assessment and handling of matters in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas and Tennessee. I have represented clients in nearly 100 mediations, arbitrations and trials.
