I am a first generation American and lifelong Houstonian. My parents emigrated from Europe to the United States in the 1960's, and realized the American dream. Today, I fight to keep the American dream alive for my clients whose last resort may be a trial by jury.
100% of my practice is devoted to helping victims in injury and death cases. I do not represent insurance companies or corporations.
I am Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization ("TBLS"), a certification held by less than 2% of all attorneys in Texas. What does "Board Certified" mean? Click here for the answer provided by the TBLS. Why choose a Board Certified lawyer? The TBLS recommends hiring a Board Certified lawyer for several reasons. For example, the TBLS states Board Certification is a "mark of excellence" and a "distinguishing accomplishment."
I am a member of The Texas Association of Civil Trial and Appellate Specialists.
I author a blog on accident and injury issues which is updated on a weekly basis: www.the-houston-accident-attorney.com
I have obtained significant recoveries for victims in cases involving dangerous and defective products, offshore accidents including Jones Act claims, 18 wheeler and other commercial truck and vehicle accidents, industrial plant accidents and other work injuries, brain injuries, and paralysis.
Some of my more recent results include:
I began my law practice with the international law firm of Shook, Hardy & Bacon, one of the largest law firms in the world. At this firm, I worked on product liability lawsuits brought against the major tobacco and pharmaceutical companies, and worked on a wide variety of commercial matters.
I earned my law degree from the University of Houston Law Center, where I was an Associate Editor of the Houston Law Review. I earned my bachelor's degree in Finance, with Honors, from the University of Texas at Austin.
I live in Houston, Texas, with my wife Ofelia and my two children, Nikola and Isa.
