Professional Life

I started Starling-Flock Law Office in 2021 out of a desire to provide a level of service I believe clients deserve: both protection from the IRS combined with tax issue monitoring, prevention and identifying value added opportunities. Today I enjoy meeting new clients, helping them in their time of need, and trying to make them better off than when we first met.

Prior to starting Starling-Flock Law Office, I worked at a regional professional services firm doing tax consulting in the credits and accounting methods area. As a tax consultant I earned for my clients over $7 million dollars in R&D tax credits, generated over $60 million dollars in lifetime cash benefits through cost segregation studies, and over $4 million in 179D energy efficient tax deductions. I continue that employment as a tax consultant. 

I also currently serve in the North Carolina National Guard as a legal advisor to the 449th Combat Aviation Brigade. It is rewarding to be able to continue to serve my state and country while primarily working a civilian career.

Prior to tax consulting, I served in the U.S. Army in the Judge Advocate General Corps. I served in Vicenza, Italy as a criminal defense attorney for the 173d Airborne Brigade and U.S. Army Africa. Before that at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, home of the Military Police Corp., Engineer Corp., and Chemical Corp. There I aided all Soldiers and their families on the base and local area as a legal assistance attorney. Then I transitioned to be an advisor to the Command and lead prosecutor for the 14th Military Police Brigade and the 92d Military Police Battalion. Before active duty I worked for the North Carolina National Guard.

Personal Life

I grew up in Connecticut, Texas, and North Carolina. My wife, Courtney, and I met at a country music concert in Raleigh, North Carolina and we married in Memphis, Tennessee. Fun fact, we married at the former home of the founder of the grocery chain Piggly Wiggly. It's called the Pink Palace. We have two young boys that bring us so much joy. I enjoy running around town, playing soccer on Sundays, cooking with my wife, and goofing around with the kids.
