About me

I earned my Juris Doctorate (law degree) at the Univ. of Houston. While there, I was awarded a fellowship to work at one of the most the prestigious capital defense post-conviction law firms in the nation, the Texas Defender Service. My practice is exclusively devoted to federal and state criminal defense. I am licensed by the state of Texas and eligible to practice in all Texas state courts however; a substantial portion of my practice is conducted in various federal courts around the nation.
