As a former journalist, I understand how important attention to detail is. The skills I learned as a journalist have helped me be successful as a lawyer. It’s my perseverance that helps me help others. I’ve been named both a Top 40 under 40 lawyers as well as a Super Lawyers Rising Star. Every day I’m motivated by my wife Victoria Charles who serves as Assistant Dean of the Birmingham School of Law as well as my two children. I serve on the Board of Directors for Easter Seals Birmingham.
