About me


I am a Texas native who graduated from Westlake High School in Austin, Texas.  From there, I went on to graduate with his Bachelor's in Plan II Honors and Spanish from The University of Texas; upon graduation, I attended The University of Texas once more to receive my Masters in Professional Accounting, as well as my Law Degree.


After earning my law degree, I spent the first four years of my practice working Fulbright & Jaworski, LLP.  I was actively involved in their litigation, health law and corporate law departments.  During my four years there, I helped to represent the firm's clients in a wide variety of cases – on both the state and federal level.  In the last year of my practice at Fulbright & Jaworski, L.L.P, I held dual positions as I also served the City of Austin as a prosecutor.  In this capacity, I first-chaired chaired over 35 jury trials.


As a trial attorney with extensive experience, I am committed to helping my clients in tough personal injury cases.  I am known for my dedication to my clients and my passion for pursuing justice in all types of injury claims – from mass torts to catastrophic truck accidents.  It is my goal to truly invest the necessary time and energy into helping my clients put their lives back together.  I know that this can be a trying time, and I want to be there to help my clients get through it.
