About Me

   I have been practicing law for over 29 years since being licensed in May 1985.  I worked for several law firms for 12 years.  I did trial work for every law firm I worked for in both federal, state district, and county courts at law in Harris, Brazoria, Fort Bend, and Liberty Counties in Texas.  In 1997, I was hired as an Assistant General Counsel for the Houston Independent School District, and I primarily was responsible for assisting the Human Resources Department with employment issues and for terminating certified personnel on written contracts.  I did this for 16 years until I left the District in March of 2013.


 


   My practice focuses on business collections and representation, consumer law, employment law, personal injury, and elder law issues.  I also provide assistance to business entities involved in personal injury litigation as a Certified Medicare Set-Aside Consultant ("CMSP") and Certified Medicare Secondary Payer Professional ("CMSPP").  I also assist individuals seeking social security benefits.
