Juris Doctor (Cumberland School of Law); Jefferson County (Alabama) Sheriff's Office Training Center/Academy; Basic SWAT; Advanced SWAT; High Risk Entry Planning
I am a lawyer who has been defending law enforcement personnel in civil suits for almost ten years. In 2006 I attended the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Training Center/Academy. Graduation and certification not only enabled me to do a better job defending my clients, but also enabled me to work part-time as a street patrol officer and SWAT operator (which experience also proved invaluable in my clients' defense). In addition to my patrol and SWAT duties, I advise my department on legal matters and am an APOST-certified instructor, teaching legal classes at the JCSOTC and various jail management classes around the state.
