About Me

I graduated from the University of Houston Law Center in 1989, receiving a good share of those college credits from participation in legal aid clinics.  I felt, and still do, that it would provide good training for a solo practice.  Going solo might not have been the best financial decision I ever made, but it has turned out to be a fulfilling one.  By focusing my practice on criminal and family law, I believe helping people with the most personal and important of all legal matters is the best use of my education
