About Me

I am an attorney in Dallas, Texas focusing on criminal defense, civil litigation involving personal injury and business disputes and estate planning matters.  Before starting my firm, I spent the first part of my career learning from the brightest and most talented trial lawyers trying wrongful death cases around the country.  Now, I bring the education and experience I gained home to help those in the DFW Metroplex and the State of Texas defend themselves when they feel they are unable to.
