My practice centers on administrative law with a focus on alcoholic beverage regulation, and general litigation with a focus on insurance defense and employment litigation. I come by my interest in alcoholic beverage regulation honestly; even before I started law school, I worked at Brown-Forman, working a small role in compliance and supply chains. During my time there, I gained firsthand-experience over how complex and confusing alcohol regulation can be. This is due to the heavily-regulated nature of the industry, which are largely from the muddled laws that have been on the books since Prohibition. My experience in seeing the impact of this tangled mess of laws and regulations shaped my interest in the law. Now, I help people navigate these obstacles to help their businesses flourish.
My primary focus for my clients is to be a steady hand to guide them when they are trapped in a web of burdensome laws, regulations, or lawsuits. These moments can be some of the most trying times for individuals and businesses, and I understand that my job is to ease the burden as much as possible and guide them to the most effective outcome. I thrive on untangling legal knots and removing obstacles, and nothing provides me more satisfaction professionally than knowing that I’ve put my experience and education to work on behalf of someone who is working hard to achieve their dreams. My clients count on me to understand not just their goals, but their concerns, their fears, their hopes and their vision, and by doing that, I can best put them on the path to success.
I clerked at both the Lexington and Louisville offices of McBrayer, where I was given a wide variety of challenges and opportunities to learn more about different parts of the law. When I was given the opportunity to continue on at McBrayer during my last year in law school, I took it without hesitation.
