Before going into law, Alan had a career in banking and was an assistant regional supervisor. He then followed his love of the law.
With a wife and two small children, he pursued law as a member of the charter class of Campbell University’s School of Law (later the Norman A. Wiggins School of Law).
He began his practice in Greenville and then returned to his home, Fayetteville. He engaged in the general practice of law; including real estate, criminal defense, traffic, domestic, personal injury, bankruptcy until he chose to specialize in only litigation, mainly in Superior Court.
In 1995, Alan was a member of the pilot mediation project. Since that time he has devoted an increasing amount of time to mediating Superior Court cases, workers’ compensation claims, and federal litigation. He is a member of the North Carolina Academy of Superior Court Mediators.
Alan continues to practice law in the areas of personal injury, workers’ compensation and social security disability appeals. He enjoys water sports and great food.
