I am a construction attorney who lives in Nashville, Tennessee with my wife Courtney DeVries.  We have seven young children (…and, yes, we know what causes it…)

The Same As You is my personal blog.  It is focused on juggling your family, work and life.  Since I am right there with you, experiencing the same challenges and losses as you, I write and speak about how to control the chaos, balance competing priorities, and having an enjoyable life.  My children inspire much of my writing.

I am also the author of Best Practices Construction Law, a construction-related blog that focuses on transportation, green building, technology and legal trends. I have published over 50 articles on various construction articles and I have spoken throughout the country. I have a successful national construction law practice.
