About Me

Hello, and thank you for viewing my information. I primarily handle bankruptcy and divorce cases in the Central Texas area (cases that are filed in courts located in McLennan County, Texas).  I also handle some business, criminal defense, family law, general civil litigation, personal injury, real estate, tax, and wills & estate planning cases in the Central Texas area. I hold 3 degrees, a doctor of jurisprudence, a bachelor of science in business management, and the police officer standards and training. I live in Hewitt, Texas with my wife, two sons, two dogs, and two birds.


I am a father of two sons.  My hobbies include working out, running, and playing golf and softball.  I coach the lawyers team in the annual doctors vs. lawyers charity softball game and have coached little league baseball, girls softball, and adult softball teams.
