In sports, teams worry about the “big game factor” on their coaches. Litigation is no different. Companies need a lawyer who has done it before and succeeded. Dylan’s clients can report to their investors that they are aggressively defending their case with an attorney familiar with their court and the nuances of their industry. He has won many dispositive motions, taken hundreds of depositions, tried several jury and bench trials, and advocated in dozens of appeals.
Dylan has represented companies in a broad range of business, corporate, and commercial litigation, including: consumer financial services, products liability, professional liability (architects, engineers, accountants, and medical providers), shareholder disputes, toxic torts, class actions, title insurance defense, multi-district litigation, and structured settlement and annuity transfers.
Dylan has a national practice representing mortgage servicers, investors, loan servicers, credit card issuers, automobile lenders, and fintech companies in consumer financial services litigation. He is experienced in consumer protection statutes such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), Truth in Lending Act (TILA), and Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Dylan is also experienced in defending defamation actions filed by public figures, with numerous reported decisions in several states.
Clients also rely on Dylan’s unique experience as a trial attorney and an appellate advocate to serve as the “appellate attorney at trial” to ensure that the approach during trial results in a viable appellate strategy that preserves all issues for appeal.

Dylan is a proud Girl Dad who is gifted in the art of dad jokes. When he’s not turning off lights in empty rooms or mowing the lawn in grass-stained white tennis shoes, he enjoys heirloom vegetable gardening, smoking meats, craft beer, and 90s country music. He is a graduate of the Alabama School of Fine Arts (where he majored in vocal performance), a former law clerk to The Honorable Tom King, Jr., and a member of St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. Il parle un peu français.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has warned that Digital Mortgage Comparison-Shopping Platforms may violate the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act’s (RESPA) anti-kickback rules. At issue are digital platforms or “online marketplaces” that enable potential borrowers to comparison shop options for mortgages and other settlement services. These websites allow potential borrowers to enter limited information that is typically part of a mortgage application, and then the platform operator purports to compare various mortgage options based on the information. The provided options typically generate paid leads for the suggested lenders and the website operator often sells the potential borrower’s contact information.
