I grew up in Cleveland, Mississippi, in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. I’ve always had a passion for the law and might say I was born into it, as my grandfather and father practiced law together and since I wanted to follow in their footsteps. I interned for a Texas State Senator while attending the University of Texas in Austin prior to going to law school in Georgia.
