About me

I  have practiced law continuously since 1993. I am admitted to practice law both in Florida (by the Florida Bar) and in Texas (by the State Bar of Texas). I am also admitted to practice law before the United States Supreme Court and numerous federal courts with jurisdiction in Florida and Texas. Since year 2000, I have been Board Certified, Labor & Employment Law, by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).

I graduated High School in Bradenton, Florida. I attended the University of South Florida, in Tampa, Florida, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A., 1986) and Master of Arts degree (M.A., 1987). After graduating, I worked for several years as an investigator for the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and as a compliance officer for the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP). I then attended the Southern Methodist University School of Law in Dallas, Texas and graduated with a Juris Doctor degree (J.D., 1993).


About My Law Practice
After graduating law school, I went to work for a boutique employment law firm and learned the employment law business from the ground up. In year 2000, I started my own law practice and have continued to concentrate my practice on the employment relationship to this day.


Why I became a Lawyer

My interest in being a lawyer was sparked early in my life as a result of a childhood illness that left me with a permanant  disability. As I came of age, I learned the power of the law to level the playing field as I could see how it helped me to overcome barriers not otherwise possible because of my disability. This is one the main reasons I decided to become a lawyer.
