A life long resident of Athens, Alabama, Debbie earned her Bachelor of Science in Business from Samford University in 1992. After working in purchasing and contracts at various corporations in North Alabama, she began her career in the legal field in 1993 as a paralegal at a law firm in Huntsville, Alabama, that served all types of people and various companies with litigation, workers’ comp, real estate, domestic, bankruptcy and social security needs.
Debbie entered law school at Birmingham School of Law in January of 2002. She worked full time at the law firm in Huntsville while traveling to Birmingham four nights per week to earn her Juris Doctorate in May of 2005. Debbie became a member of the Alabama Bar on September 30, 2005. Debbie worked for one year at a firm in Athens and opened her sole practice in Madison in June of 2007.
Debbie offers a very hands-on approach to taking care of her client’s needs. You will meet with her, not a paralegal or secretary. She not only understands the law, but takes client communication seriously. She takes great care to make sure each of her clients understand the process and what to expect. The legal world can seem very overwhelming to those who do not navigate it daily. Debbie answers questions and makes sure that each client is comfortable with the answers they get and the approach that is recommended. This saves the client both time and money.
Debbie is active in her community and attends The Rock Family Worship Center and volunteers at Manna House in Huntsville, Alabama.
Debbie is a member of the Limestone and Madison County Bar Association, Alabama State Bar, the Alabama Trial Lawyers, and American Association for Justice and National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
