In addition to his private law practice, he served as a city prosecutor and assistant city attorney for the city of Homestead.

Lynn and Ann have been avid supporters of Steps to HOPE over the years, and believe in its mission.

“Domestic violence, abuse and sexual assault must be addressed in a serious, frank and open manner and steps must be taken to educate families as to the issues and resources available,” Lynn said. “Prevention is the goal and offering help to those in need is crucial. My experience as a prosecutor of domestic assault cases has deepened my understanding and empathy for those families impacted by violence and abuse.”   

Steps to HOPE is the domestic violence and sexual assault treatment and prevention center serving western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina.
