About me

It has been both exhilarating and challenging to build one of the premier law firms in Collin County. Our passion for representing personal injury victims as well as businesses and entrepreneurial owners drives us to higher levels of excellence in representing clients.


I enjoy speaking on all topics; sky-diving; sailing; and being with my family, including our first grandchild, Duke!


My Christian faith is very much a part of the way I practice law, and I make no secret about it. We are held to a higher standard.
