We Win Through Communication

Let’s cut through it.  You want a lawyer who is aggressive and will find a way to win your case.  I have a unique vision of what it means to be a lawyer.  We win through communication. Phenomenal trial results come the Perfect Lines of communication. What this means is that a lawyer should be talking to his client whenever possible. When we are talking, we are winning.

“You as a client know your case better than anyone else.  You tell me how to win the case.”

Texting as the Key

Technology has made it possible to have “fast food” instant contact with you lawyer.  So, that’s what we use.  As an attorney, Jamie is available by text whenever you need him.  This creates a line of communication which allows us to work as a team.

  1. Charged with misdemeanor assault in Nashville when the lady gave false statements to Nashville Metropolitan Police.

    There was an altercation and I DID PUSH the lady away after she attacked me. She grabbed my coffee cup and attempted to throw the coffee in my face. I responded by pushing her away.

    The lady told the Police that I hit her. The DA moved forward and I am awaiting trial.
    I believe my rights have been violated the police accused me of hitting the lady and submitted false documents to the DA. I will be suing all parties for false statements.
