Louisa is a small rural
community in the heart of central Virginia. I have practiced law
here since 1986. I find criminal law to be especially interesting.
However, I also have substantial family law clientele. In addition,
I do civil work that does not involve litigation, such as wills,
powers of attorney, simple deeds, etc.
I am also the attorney for one of the two incorporated towns in Louisa County. Although my practice is based in Louisa County, I also practice in Orange County Circuit Court and Orange County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
