Thank you for visiting. I hope the information here is helpful. Feel free to contact me or any of the lawyers in our firm for more information.
I joined Newton, Jones & Spaeth in 2010. Immediately after arriving, I began handling a wide range of complex litigation matters to include personal injury, wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, car accident, construction defects, bad-faith insurance, consumer fraud and deceptive trade practice act cases.
My primary focus has been upon representing Texans who have been harmed in their community. We are not afraid to take on big corporations, insurance companies and their team of lawyers. In the military, we protect those who cannot protect themselves. At our firm, we bring that same mindset in to the practice of law. We will never give up. We will never accept defeat. We will never quit. This is a promise we make to you, as your lawyers.
My successes in court, settlements and mediations, on behalf of my clients, is tightly connected with my diverse background as a psychological operation specialist, a commissioned officer and leader of Soldiers in the United States Army. Over the past decade, I have had the distinguished opportunity of serving this Nation during peacetime and combat operations overseas.
My military service began on April 23, 2001, as an enlisted Soldier in the United States Army Reserves. I completed basic training at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina, and psychological operations specialist training at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. Following training, I was assigned to the 307th Psyop. in St. Louis, Missouri. As a member of the 307 Psyop, I completed the Army Basic Airborne School at Ft. Benning, Georgia. In 2004, I commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army Transportation Corp. Following my completion of the Transportation Officer Basic Course in Ft. Eustis, Virginia, I was assigned to the 28th Transportation Battalion in Mannheim, Germany as a Platoon Leader in the 68th Transportation Company. In 2005, I deployed to Al Asad, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. While in Iraq, I served as a Platoon Leader, a Forward Logistics Element “Officer-In-Charge,” and a Supply and Service “Officer-In-Charge.” After returning from Iraq, I was reassigned to the 3-68th Transportation Company in Vicenza, Italy, where I served as the Detachment Commander. In July 2007, I transferred to the United States Army Reserves and assumed command of the 657th Transportation Company in Belleville, Illinois. In 2011, I completed the Logistics Captain’s Career Course at Ft. Lee, Virginia. Upon completion, I was assigned to the 1st Brigade, Southern Training Division, 75th Training Command, as the Brigade Logistics Officer. In 2012, I was promoted to the rank of Major.
