Attorney at Law
My inspiration for becoming a lawyer came from being sued by a debt buyer. I had no idea that I had any interest in law until I found myself learning how to defend a debt collection lawsuit. The legal process fascinated me, and this newly found passion led the way to successfully defending my case. After the conclusion of my case, I went on to graduate from Kennesaw State with a Paralegal Certificate with Honors. I then worked for several years for an attorney who handled a variety of cases, including consumer debt collection lawsuit defense cases and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) cases. As a paralegal for a trial attorney, I learned firsthand how to prepare cases for trial. While working full time as a paralegal, I enrolled in the part time evening program at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, where I graduated as Valedictorian of my law school class. In law school, I practiced under the Student Practice Act in Superior Courts of DeKalb County working on felony criminal cases. Today, I am a lawyer that defends Georgians against the same type of case that I once experienced. I know exactly what you are going through.
