About Me

I am a native West Texan, who moved from Lubbock to Tarrant County to practice law  in 1987.  I live in southern Arlington with my wife and two children.  Prior to practicing law I worked as a CPA helping individuals, families, small business owners and  farmers with income, estate and payroll tax issues.   My practice  is focused on helping clients understand and work through  the legal aspects of the health care system in order to take care of themselves and their families. 


You may see me at various long-bow archery competitions around the State from time to time, including Chester and the State Long-Bow Championship in Fort Worth.
