Catastrophic Medical and Nursing Home Injury and Wrongful Death Throughout North Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee

I work for those who have been injured (physically, emotionally, or financially) by the wrongdoing of others. I am committed to my clients' catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, whether they arise from nursing home abuse/neglect, medical negligene and errors (including birth and brain injuries), or other accidents; and I am willing to take those cases to trial, if necessary and appropriate to achieve a fair result. My peers (including defense lawyers and judges) have rated me "AV (Preeminent)" through the Martindale-Hubbell peer review ratings process, and I am highly rated by my former-clients on You can also see client reviews on the Pleasant Law website. I provide personal and intense attention to my clients' matters. Whether an insurance law dispute, injury or death resulting from nursing home abuse, medical error, birth or brain injury involving cerebral palsy, surgery error, or a failure to diagnose a dangerous or deadly condition; I will do my best to help and resolve my clients' matters favorably.

Personal Responsibility

When those who hurt others (or their insurance companies) don't treat their victims fairly or take full responsibility, juries, courtrooms and arbitration hearing rooms may be necessary to ensure justice is done. There are safety principles and rules that apply to all of us in various situations, and accountability is important when those rules are not followed and someone is harmed. Accountability leads to increased care and responsibility. It leads to change. It makes medicine and health care safer. It makes dealing with insurance companies more fair.

Many doctors, nurses, and nursing homes do heroic things. We admire them for their care, skill and education. Insurance companies serve a critical function in our social and economic systems. In some cases, though, certain companies and people don't follow the rules and people get hurt (sometimes physically, sometimes economically, and sometimes both).  Many times, the hurt could have been easily avoided. Many times, unfortunately, the hurt is clearly due to systemic and widespread problems that are the result of blind devotion to profits over people.


I have recovered over $20,000,000.00 in settlements and verdicts for my clients in medical, insurance, and other cases since the opening of the firm in 2007, individually and through joint prosecution arrangements.
