About me

I have been serving as Houston personal injury lawyer, a handling catastrophic personal injury claims across Texas for my entire legal career.  I am very hands on with my clients, emailing with them, speaking to them as often as they need me to.  My staff are all bilingual and we are proud to represent clients who are Spanish-speaking.  If you have been injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident or hurt while working on the job in any way, please contact my law firm at and if I can help, I will.  You can read more about our firm by visiting our Facebook page and our website.
