About me

I am Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.


My legal practice is primarily focused on estate planning, elder law, probate, business succession planning, and other matters involving family wealth planning and management. I also regularly advise clients with regard to nonprofit law, corporate and partnership formation and planning, commercial contracts, and acquisitions and dispositions of businesses.


Prior to law school, I held the position of Senior Associate in the Deloitte & Touche Corporate Finance Group, where my business consulting practice was principally focused on the valuation of business entities and corporate merger and acquisition advisory.  Thereafter, I was the Finance Manager of Intrinsity, Inc., an Austin, Texas designer of high-performance microprocessors, where I developed and maintained the company’s business plan financials and assisted in efforts to raise venture capital funding.
