Travis was born and raised in Auburn, Alabama. After graduating from Auburn University, he attended Cumberland School of Law, where he took a particular interest in trial advocacy. He and his wife, who he met while in law school, now reside in Vestavia with their two young children and a mischievous Springer Spaniel. In his spare time, Travis gladly serves as both as a slow-footed defender/tackling dummy for his sports-addicted son and court jester to his infant daughter, who is the undisputed queen of the household. Travis has also long been dedicated to serving others in the Birmingham community. He has been honored to serve at varying times on the Junior Boards of two amazing non-profit organizations, Triumph Services and The Bell Center, both of whom provide assistance to hundreds of individuals with special needs.

Travis formerly clerked for the Honorable Tom King of the 10th Judicial Circuit of Alabama. He joined Gaines, Gault, Hendrix following graduation from Cumberland School of Law in 2008 and has remained with the firm at all times since. He became a partner with the firm in 2013, and has successfully tried dozens of jury trials to verdict. Travis has also achieved several successful results through dedicated motion and appellate practice.
