Cost effective, favorable outcomes are a hallmark of his law practice.

  • Successfully defended client in federal court against breach of contract and unfair and deceptive trade practices act claim governed under North Carolina law.   The client’s Rule 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted resulted in the court dismissing both counts with prejudice. 
  • Successfully represented a ballot question committee (BQC) in an original action filed in the Supreme Court of Arkansas against the Arkansas Secretary of State challenging the sufficiency of a statewide referendum petition the Secretary certified for the 2020 general election as having satisfied Article 5, Section 1 of the Arkansas Constitution.
