I am a trial lawyer, with over 14 years of experience, mostly as a prosecutor in Brooklyn, New York and Dallas, Texas. I have prosecuted every type of criminal case imaginable: from Prostitution to Sodomy and Rape; from DWI to Intoxication Manslaughter; from Possession of Controlled Substances to Manufacture and Delivery Greater than 400 Grams; from Assault Family Violence to Murder.
In February 2016, after much consideration, I decided to turn in the badge that I had carried for nearly 6 years as a Dallas County Assistant District Attorney, and join my wife and partner, Monica Smith, in private practice.
I bring the same passion for Justice, that fueled me as a young prosecutor, to the table as an experienced attorney who now defends the rights of the accused. Put my training and experience to work for you.
