About me

I was born
in McAllen, TX.  During middle school, my parents decided to move
to Plano, TX, for new and exciting work opportunities.  After
attending multiple years of high school at Plano West Senior High,
I dropped out and received my G.E.D. Though the odds of returning to school and completing my higher education were against me, I did return. I began taking courses in Community College
and after taking a criminal justice class, I knew my true calling
was law.  Immediately thereafter, I transferred to Texas Tech
University and began my quest to become an attorney by majoring in
Psychology and Political Science.

One month after graduating from Texas Tech, I moved to Michigan
to attend law school.  Throughout law school, I assisted a small
law firm with employment and criminal litigation.  Although the law
firm was small, the attorneys showed me that David could actually
beat Goliath.   I assisted in a wide array of cases, everything
from representing class action Fair Labor Standards Act claims to
general illegal criminal searches.   

After law school, I returned to Texas and began assisting the
Dallas City Attorney’s office in employment matters.  My job
responsibilities included investigating EEOC complaints filed by
employees, investigating City of Dallas employee misconduct, and
assisting in the termination procedures.  I then began assisting
in the misdemeanor division of the Dallas County Public Defender’s
office where I handled many types of misdemeanors charges for
indigent clients.
