I am a civil rights, child abuse, employment law and criminal defense attorney in Nashville. My mom was born in Italy, so I am half Italian, part English, Irish, Scottish and a little American Indian. I grew up in a small town in western Pennsylvania. I am a passionate person who has taken many risks to reach personal and professional goals in life. I am motivated. I try to inspire those I interact with, yet I maintain humility. I love animals, especially dogs and it is a must that you love them too. I hope to balance my world by one day experiencing a loving wife and family. I am confident, yet down to earth. I try to slow down and relish the simple treasures in life. I lost my wife a couple of years ago in a tragic accident and have been reluctant to start something new, but I know that life was not meant to be lived alone. Oh the girl in one of my pictures is my niece, I do not yet have my own children.
