About Me

I have been practice law for over 35 years.  For 30 of those years I have been practicing exclusively Bankruptcy Law.  I am Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in both Consumer and Business Bankruptcy Law.


 


Personally I have been married to my wife Kathy for over 30 years.  I have two sons.  Mike, who works with me as a debt relief lawyer and my other son Ryan who works for the Department of Justice.  I also have four grandsons who keep me plenty busy.
