My mission is to put my clients in the best possible position to achieve their goals by out-preparing and out-working my opponent.
I am first and foremost a trial attorney. Much of my skill and craft were honed as a criminal prosecutor in the Denton County District Attorney’s office. I have spent countless hours in the courtroom advocating for my clients. While I am always courteous and professional in the courtroom, my clients will not be bullied.
I enjoy courtroom advocacy the most, but I emphasize a strategy that lessens resentment and hostility and focuses on creative problem-solving, goal setting for the future, and preserving dignity. I work hard with and for my clients to achieve their goals. It is crucial to determine what is most important for my client but also to know what is important to the other party or attorney.
I love my job, but I recognize that my clients come to me during the most trying times of their lives. The steps we take together are the difference between easing and undermining the transition into the next phase of life.
