About me

i have an interest in Equine Law and am a frequent attendee at the National Symposium on Equine Law in Lexington , Ky. In addition, I am a member of the Animal Law Section of the Houston Bar Association.


I own a horse and  the equestrian discipline of dressage is an  interest of mine, one I have been pursuing for years!
