About me

I have been licensed in the State of Texas since 2003. My passion is fighting for my clients in the courtroom to obtain the best outcome as possible. I take great pride in defending my clients and protecting what few protections we have left from our Constitution. Thank you for viewing my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.
