My legal experience with Landrum & Shouse has been expansive and far-reaching, from defending individuals in simple car accidents to complex construction defect cases, bad faith defense and transportation defense. 

I am a member of the Trucking Industry Defense Association, which consists of attorneys, claims adjusters, and trucking industry professionals dedicated to protecting and bettering the trucking industry through understanding of evolving federal regulations and legal trends.

I have personally assisted in rapid response scenarios, arranging and attending accident reconstruction, vehicle inspections, and working with truck drivers to ensure that proper post-accident procedures are followed.  I have successfully practiced and tried cases in both federal and state court, and I have also negotiated settlements in mediations and federal settlement conferences. 

It is my goal to carry on the tradition of quality client representation here at Landrum & Shouse, LLP.
