Prior to launching my own practice, I worked for the fourth largest free legal aid provider in the United States. My wide-ranging cases included family, landlord-tenant, consumer, bankruptcy, foreclosure defense, probate, unemployment, contract disputes, Social Security, FEMA and public benefits cases.
I am admitted to practice before all Texas State Courts and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. I am a member of the State Bar of Texas, American Immigration Lawyers Association, American Bar Association, and Galveston County Bar Association.
I received my Juris Doctor from the University of Houston Law School, working in the Immigration Clinic under the supervision of renowned Joseph Vail. I obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Dallas, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
Through the Poole Law Center, I am able to offer professional, personalized legal assistance. Using current technology, I can provide flexible and accessible options for clients.
