I am committed to providing you with top notch legal representation.

I approach every client with a focus on integrity, advocacy, and understanding.

I strive to provide smart, sensible, and cost-effective legal solutions for my clients, and my staff provides exceptional client service.

I serve a wide range of clientele, and every client relationship is valued greatly. I am fully committed to exceeding client expectations.

I am proud that so many of my clients have repeatedly turned to me for counsel and representation, and I work hard to earn their loyalty every day.


I am a native of Carter County and grew up in the Stoney Creek community. After graduating from Unaka High School, I attended East Tennessee State University where I recieved a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice & criminology in 2003 graduating magna cum laude, and a Master of Arts degree in criminal justice & criminology in 2004. I then worked as a police officer for the City of Kingsport, Tennessee for approximately four years before returning to law school. I received a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the University of Mississippi "Ole Miss" School of Law, graduating summa cum laude and ranked fifth overall in my class in 2011. After graduation I returned home to Elizabethton and joined the law firm of Keith Bowers, Jr. & Associates and subsequently became a partner in the firm of Bowers & Hardin. I am now a solo practitioner in addition to serving as the County Attorney for Carter County, Tennessee, Delinquent Tax Attorney for Carter County, Tennessee, City Attorney for the City of Watauga, Tennessee and general counsel for the First Utility District of Carter County and the Watauga River Regional Water Authority.
