About Me

I am certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law.  I have been practicing personal injury trial law exclusively since obtaining my license in 1995. I handle dog bite cases, 18 wheeler and auto collisions, work accidents where there is no workers compensation, slip-and-falls, motorcycle wrecks and other types of negligence cases.


I enjoy playing drums, taking my family to the beach and playing soccer with my kids.
