Having practiced with midsize and larger law firms to begin my career, I have obtained vast experience in the tax and business areas, including business litigation in my more than thirty years of practicing law, previously licensed in Kentucky and Louisiana before settling down in Alabama. Before practicing law, I obtained my CPA certificate, successfully passing the CPA exam while attending Tulane Law School.
After practicing in New Orleans for two years, I then obtained a Masters of Law (LL.M.) degree in Taxation from the University of Miami School of Law in Coral Gables, Florida. I have successfully passed bar examinations in the states of Louisiana, Kentucky and Alabama, where i am presently licensed and practicing, and have called home for more than twenty-five years. (I do not practice in Louisiana or Kentucky, and have not practiced in years there. For several years after moving to Alabama, I maintained all three licenses, even though I did not practice there, and then decided not to continue those licenses, so please consider me for Alabama legal representation only.)
I have been fortunate to be able to teach budding lawyers Income and Estate Tax Law in law school for sixteen years, as well as business law at the university level for a number of years as well. I have often been found teaching seminars to attorneys, certified public accountants and others, and enjoy those endeavors.
But nothing compares to me being able to join forces with my clients and helping them in their business, with their taxes, their estate planning, asset protection, or other legal need. Being a solution finder to their issues is a special thing that gives me pride. As a sole practitioner, I often can pass cost-savings to clients who expect “big firm” quality representation, but need to be efficient with their legal fee expenses as well. In addition, I am affiliated with a larger firm in an “of counsel” relationship such that in the event that more resources are needed, I have those readily available.
