"I have always wanted to live in a close-knit community where my friends were not only my neighbors, but also my co-workers. Ever since I met my wife, Carrie Dale, she has raved about Eastern North Carolina and its friendly, comforting and vivacious environment. After having spent the past few weeks in Kinston, I now understand what my wife has been saying for all of these years. The opportunity to practice law in this growing community excites me. I am looking forward to setting down roots and establishing life in Kinston."
