My practice focuses on criminal defense representing citizens in many different jurisdictions.
I served in the Harris County District Attorney’s office for 17 years and I have practiced criminal defense since 2003.
I was a partner with Jim Lindeman for 10 years and together we tried many serious cases including Capital Murders, Murders, Aggravated Robberies, Aggravated Sexual Assaults, White Collar Crimes, Thefts, Drugs, DWI and many Misdemeanor cases.
Having worked both as a prosecutor and a defense lawyer, I feel I can provide my clients with the knowledge, experience and perspective from both sides of the criminal justice process.
Over the last 29 years, I have earned a reputation as a hard-working, ethical lawyer who will vigorously defend his clients’ rights both in and out of the courtroom.
I previously attended the United States Air Force Academy, received a B.A. in Economics from the University of Houston and my J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center.
