I attained degrees in accounting and agricultural economics from the University of Kentucky in 1985.  I worked for two years and then returned to law school.  I received my law degree from the University of Kentucky in 1990.  For two years I practiced in Lexington, Kentucky with a large firm.  In 1992 I moved to Muhlenberg County to practice with Bill Paxton.  I have been partners with Bill since that time.  My practice is a mix of banking, real estate, small business, personal injury and family law.
