About Me

My Firm is located on the west side of Houston in the Katy area and we handle cases in Harris, Fort Bend, Galevston and all surrounding Counties.

If you are facing the prospect of being accused of a crime, you could
face the most stressful and challenging battle of your life. The
government at every level is a relentless opponent, and when you find
yourself coming under scrutiny from local, state, or federal
prosecutors, you only have one choice in terms of how to react.

You need to fight back aggressively by building a strong defense,
and this is your Constitutional right. Simply sitting and hoping that
the problem will solve itself is exactly the opposite of what you
should do.

As a former prosecutor and now a defense attorney, I have worked on
and have experience handling all kinds of criminal cases from
possession of drugs to DWI to assault and murder and everything in
between. My clients hire a professional with the experience to fight
for their rights and liberty. I negotiate hard with the State and I am
willing and capable of fighting hard at trial. I pride myself that all
of my clients receive an ethical and zealous defense.


I grew up in Rochester NY and graduated from St. John Fisher College.  I graduated from South Texas College of Law in 1998 and I was admited to the Texas Bar in 1998.  From 1998 -2000 I was an Assistant District Attornet in Henderson County, TX.  Then from 2000-2006 I was an assistant District Attorney in Harris County, TX.  I have run my own law office since 2006.  My law office is in the west Houston / Katy area.
