I grew up in Flora Mississippi. After graduation, I attended Mississippi State University before joining the US Army and serving in the Vietnam conflict. as a 2nd Lieutenant with Bravo Company 2/7th in 1st Air Cavalry Division (Custer's Cavalry) before being reassigned as the Commanding Officer of a nuclear weapons in northern Germany. I was then promoted to Captain in a Green Special Forces Unit and finished my military service as a Military Police Captain. I started my first responder service with the City of Jackson Mississippi rising from a Patrolman, Sergeant and finished my public service as a Lieutenant. For over four decades, I have used my police training, military experience to defend those charged clients charged with crimes, including DUI , drug possession, domestic violence, and then to expunge arrest and conviction records of thousands of clients. My Green Berets approach to defending my clients' cases has led me to thousands of court room battles in my state and 23 other states. I am a founding Regent of the National College for DUI Defense (, serving as its Dean is 2001. I am Mississippi's only ABA Board-Certified DUI Trial lawyer. As a NCDD Fellow i continue to present at the summer and winter programs. In 2019, at the Summer Session conducted at Harvard University, I received the Erwin-Taylor Award, noting a lifetime achievement to the NCDD and bestowed thirteen times in the college's twenty five year history. I have been selected to Super Lawyers through 2020.I enjoy an AVVO 10 rating, and have a Martindale-Hubbell "av" (highest) and their preeminent rating. I was the original author of Mississippi DUI Law and Practice and Mississippi Criminal Law Practice Forms (both are Thompson/West Publications) and am now joined by Kevin Stewart and Lance Mixon in updating these treatises for more than a decade. I have recently undertaken the development of an additional treatise to address Criminal Law in Mississippi. View More ›
