About Me

Lawyer based in Corpus Christi specializing in wills, estates, trusts, probate and business organizations. Board certified estate planning and probate law since 1993. Licensed certified public accountant. 


I am a lawyer in a small office with prior big firm law experience. This means that I recognize two things. Number one, you are coming to me because you are looking for a more personal and responsive experience, and I will try to provide that. Most of my clients have had prior representation with larger law firms and prefer not to go down that road again. Number two, you are looking for someone who will have the same expertise as a larger firm, and I provide that as well, in my areas of practice. I only provide services in my specific area act of expertise and to South Texas and surrounding area clients.  


I love meeting and helping new people and am especially adept at assisiting widows and widowers through the grieving process. In my area of the law, people skills are many times just as important and legal skills.


My only hobby other than my work and my family is you may find me working out at some ridiculous hour in the morning before I go to work.
