Born and raised in Suffolk, VA., I have practiced law for more than 37 years since graduating from the Law School at the University of Virginia. My family and my faith are very important to me and I give back to the community via my church and other organizations as thanks for the wonderful life I’ve been blessed with. My loving wife Sally and my sons Matt, Stephen and Michael, along with my three grandchildren help keep me focused on what is truly important every day – helping people..
