About Me

I offer my business clients affordable and cost-effective solutions so they can spend money developing their business rather than paying legal fees. I am from a small town in East Texas and was raised to know the value of a dollar, which transcends into my legal practice.

I began practicing law at a firm specializing in commercial construction litigation. I developed a unique knowledge of the construction industry that general practitioners do not possess. Although I diversified my practice I continue to hone my construction skills and stay abreast of changes in the law. 

When I joined McCormick & Hancock in Houston, I brought my unique knowledge of the construction and business industry with me. By combining resources, I offer my business and individual clients solutions to a broader array of challenges.


 


Our firm also helps people that have been affected by catastrophic injuries or death. We know these matters can turn your life upside down and have experienced attorneys and staff to assist so you do not have go through it alone.

    Brent is an outstanding advocate for his clients. We worked on several pre-trial motions together where Brent proved to be an outstanding legal writer by being spot on with the legal issues in a very complex case. I am sure any client retaining Brent quickly feels confident in the quality of Brent's work.
