I was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Growing up in the area, I was heavily involved in the community as an Eagle Scout and graduate of R.J. Reynolds High School. Following graduation from Reynolds, I attended college at Virginia Tech. A proud Hokie, I went on to earn two degrees with honors in Political Science and Economics and to become a Rhodes Scholar nominee. I returned home to attend law school at Wake Forest University, where I was the Symposium Editor for the Journal of Law and Policy. Upon graduation, I was inducted into the Order of the Barristers for excellence in courtroom advocacy due to my extensive Moot Court experience on the ABA National Appellate Advocacy and National Moot Court teams.I am the founder and managing partner of Greenwood Law. As a criminal defense lawyer, I practice state and federal criminal law in North Carolina. With a law firm in Winston Salem, I provide skilled defense counsel to clients throughout the state. If you face criminal charges in North Carolina, it is important to consult with a knowledgeable defense lawyer before making any statements to police or prosecutors. Even seemingly harmless statements can come back to haunt you. I can help you to understand the charges you face and guide you through the criminal justice system. I can be your strong advocate in negotiation or at trial, depending on the circumstances of your case. I handle a broad range of criminal defense matters, including DUI/DWI defense, white collar crimes, drug possession charges, gun violations, criminal appeals, murder, expungements, and traffic violations.In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, son, other family members and friends. We love to travel throughout the world. I also enjoy playing golf, and giving back to the community that has given so much to me.
