David has been practicing in the areas of Elder Law, Medicaid, Guardianship, Probate and Estate Planning since 1999. He brings to this area of law a keen interest in issues surrounding the aging population and a desire to make complex issues easily understandable. The more a client understands the workings of the Medicaid system or how the Court handles a guardianship action, the better equipped the client is to make good decisions. David’s practice of law has also been greatly informed and enhanced by his experience in counseling courses, gained as he obtained a Masters of Divinity.
David obtained his Bachelor of Arts at Furman University in Greenville, SC, majoring in Political Science and French, and his Masters of Divinity at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville KY, emphases in higher education and world religions. He obtained Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law. He also participated in the Legal Clinic for the Elderly while at Wake Forest.
Every attorney licensed to practice law in North Carolina is required to obtain Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits every year. David has been an instructor at numerous CLE seminars, including guardianship law in such courses as Basics of Estate Administration, Estate Planning and Probate Law Survey Course, Practice Before the Clerk of Superior Court, and several Medicaid and Special Assistance seminars. He has also addressed small group seminars for the public sponsored by groups such as the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Greensborn NC Lawyer
