About Me

Prior to the practice of law, I spent ten years as a management consultant, first with a big six accounting firm, then as an internal consultant with a fortune 100 company.  Prior to starting my own law practice, I was a member, and Special Counsel with two prestigious law firms, serving clients across the country.  I was named a 2005 and 2007 Texas Rising Star by Texas Monthly Magazine and have been a frequent CLE speaker on employment law and litigation topics.   I have represented public and private entities, as well as employees of such entities in both state and federal courts, as well as before arbitrators and administrative agencies at the state and federal level.
