Chad was recently named a Mid-South “Rising Star” — a designation afforded to only 2.5% of lawyers in the state of Alabama who are under 40 years of age. Chad is also a graduate of the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum and was selected as a participant in the Alabama Leadership Initiative. Chad has served as head of the firm’s recruiting committee and multiple terms on the firm’s Board of Directors.
Chad believes in fostering client loyalty through efficiency, candor, and personal relationships. To that end, Chad works closely with clients to develop realistic budgets and explore cost-effective approaches to all types of litigation. If early resolution cannot be achieved, Chad advocates for an aggressive approach that will place each case in the best posture for summary judgment, mediation, or trial.
