Gary began his career as a commercial litigator but quickly transitioned to product liability defense. He has represented automobile, building material, and construction equipment manufacturers. From 2005 to 2010, he successfully litigated and resolved over 20,000 product liability claims brought against automobile manufacturers.

Since 2010, Gary has represented numerous businesses including pharmaceutical companies, commercial construction subcontractors, venture capital groups, large law firms, non-profits, and insurers. He also has represented individuals including white collar criminal defendants, professional athletes, and personal injury claimants. In 2019, Gary was engaged by Roc Nation to pursue civil rights claims on behalf of inmates at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. He continues to work pro bono in support of prison reform at Parchman. 

Since 2015, Gary has dedicated an increasing portion of his busy practice to mediation. He genuinely enjoys the negotiation process, working with litigants and their attorneys, and achieving resolutions. 

Gary is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and Mississippi College School of Law. He served as law clerk to the Honorable Henry T. Wingate, United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. He holds a commercial pilot certificate with multi-engine and instrument ratings. He is happily married and has three sons.
