About Me

I have represented thousands of individuals that have been harmed by the conduct of others. My practice areas have included securities litigation, asbestos litigation, product liability, aviation accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, mass tort and class action litigation.  I have recovered in excess of $200 million for clients I have represented.


I have tried cases in various state and federal courts, including Texas, Pennsylvania, Missouri and Florida.  In addition, I have argued appeals to the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in addition to appellate courts in Texas and Louisiana. I am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth and Tenth Circuits, U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western Districts of Texas and the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas. I have also participated in federal and state court discovery and pretrial hearings in over 25 states.
