About Me

I am a former Navy officer, with both active and Reserve service, now retired.  I handle all manner of trial, appellate, and post-conviction matters at the state and federal level, including complex white collar and drug cases.  I have been fortunate enough to have been the recent President of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, and am a Director of the Fort Bend County Criminal Lawyers Association.
