Professional Biography

The value I bring to the client and the McBrayer firm is that I am willing to work hard to obtain the goals/objectives that the client wants to achieve with his or her particular case. Oftentimes, after lawyers have been involved in a case for some time, they lose sight of what the client seeks to resolve/accomplish through their representation. This is something I believe can be alleviated by maintaining an open dialogue with the client throughout my representation and by listening to their particular concerns and needs. Ultimately, the reason that we are here is to represent our clients’ best interests and to help them achieve their goals/objectives through our representation. 

As a member of the firm’s litigation department, I practice in a variety of areas involving civil litigation. However, a large part of my practice involves real estate litigation, contract litigation, construction litigation, and landlord-tenant law. These areas stretch across a wide spectrum that includes negotiating and preparing contract and lien documents, lease negotiations (both commercial and residential), litigation of lease disputes, construction and/or real estate contract disputes, and a variety of other issues that arise during the course of a construction project, a real estate transaction, or the term of the commercial or residential lease.
