My first priority is to resolve the case for my client efficiently, ethically and effectively. From the first meeting through the life of the case, I always give you an honest opinion and believe that we are team working towards a resolution. I maintain a "court centric"
litigation focus so when or if the case is in litigation, I am ready willing and able to fight for you.
My greatest satisfaction comes from arguing in court and putting a case in front
of the jury. Attorneys from around Houston and Texas hire me to go to court to try their cases and argue motions. I handle all the paperwork quite well, and like it, but
for me the courthouse holds the most promise. What it boils is down to is this: I enjoy the fight but handle the
procedural and paper side equally well. I am not one to sit in my office. In the years since law school, I have worked as an assistant district and
county attorney trying criminal cases. Then I went in house with a large
insurance company to try civil cases. I topped that off by joining a firm that
specializes in workers' comp so I honed my administrative hearing skills while maintaining a litigation docket before moving to only litigation at a larger firm. This
experience results in someone who is happiest when in court.
When my cases go to trial, I put a heavy focus in to preparing for voir dire.
To me, jury selection can make or break the case while setting the tone of the
trial. Part of my preparation centers around reviewing the case law and
examining my case with a critical eye for flaws that need to be addressed. This
provides an excellent way to prepare the case. Furthermore, jury selection
provides an excellent opportunity to begin to argue the facts and build a
rapport with the jury. I really enjoy this portion of the trial.
ask me to get the money owed to them from a business transaction. I pursue the debtors and collect the judgments. Those cases
tend to get me to court more frequently then people expect. Family law cases also get highly contested and often require many trips to the courthouse to resolve disputes that arise during the process. When it comes to seek a final remedy, if an agreement cannot be reached, I argue for my clients to seek what is right and fair.
