About Me

Read my clients' reviews! I enjoy my job, work hard and take my clients' cases seriously. I'm Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law and my practice has been 100% personal injury for ten years. I was voted a Top Personal Injury Lawyer for 2013 and 2014 by Houstonia Magazine, and named a Rising Star by Texas Super Lawyers in 2014. I graduated magna cum laude from University of Houston Law Center in 2005 and was ranked 20th in a class of 387 law students. I started my career at Fulbright, one of Texas' premiere law firms. I don't over promise and I don't give potential clients sales pitches so they'll hire me. Instead I offer free consultations that are not rushed and that give folks a chance to ask questions.


I represent people in the Houston area and throughout Texas. I protect the rights of clients injured in truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, fall injuries, work injuries, pedestrian accidents, plant explosions, drunk driving accidents, injuries caused by dangerous productsdog bites and animal attacks, wrongful death claims and more.


My office is on the 610 Loop in Houston near the Houston Heights area. I work strictly on a contingent fee basis: no attorneys fee unless the client gets a recovery.
