I have a desire to help people first and foremost and that is the reason I decided to become an attorney. My practice areas reflect that desire. Whether someone needs guidance through a divorce or has suffered a terrible injury or a death of a loved one, I work tirelessly to guide my clients through these trying times. I am also a born competitor, and my competitive nature is evident when fighting for my clients.

Born and raised in Owensboro, I attended Owensboro High School and graduated from Georgetown College. At Georgetown, I was a Presidential Scholar and member of the football team, winning 2 NAIA national championships and serving as team captain my senior year. I obtained my law degree from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. I graduated Cum Laude from law school and was an associate editor of the Thomas M. Cooley Journal of Practical and Clinical Law.

While in law school, I met my wife, Meghan, who is also an attorney at Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP. After graduating from law school, Meghan and I decided to make our home in Owensboro. I have been with Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP since my admission to the Kentucky Bar.

My practice areas include family law/divorce, personal injury/wrongful death, debt collection, estate planning, criminal defense, and general civil litigation.
