About me

I graduated from Baylor Law School, passed the Texas bar exam and became a licensed attorney in 2005.  I have worked as both a plaintiff and defense attorney in State and Federal courts.  


I am a highly qualified and versatile attorney with substantial experience in multiple areas of the law, as well as exceptional litigation and appellate skills.  My qualifications also include excellent research, analytical, and writing proficiency.  My experience includes several areas of civil litigation, and I have worked on mass torts, construction defect cases, product liability, breach of contract/warranty, consumer protection cases, personal injury and wrongful death cases, motor vehicles and commercial trucking accidents.  I also do estate planning and trusts, as well as family law.  


 


I have managed cases in these areas from the initial stages through trial, prepared trial and litigation briefs and motions, drafted pleadings, conducted research, interviewed clients and witnesses, propounded and answered discovery, taken and defended depositions, negotiated settlements, presented oral arguments at hearings, acted as first and second chair at trial and written appellate briefs.  I have won arguments at hearings and summary judgments, at trial and on appeals.  Prior to passing the bar, I gained exposure to all areas of federal practice from my internships with the U.S. Federal Magistrate and also completed an internship with a State Title IV-D Court (child support cases). 


 


I make sure my clients know what is happening with their case at all times and work to develop litigation/trial strategies and workable solutions for a diverse range of clients.
