I am a Plaintiff's trial lawyer, always fighting for the rights of injured people against insurance companies and corporations. I am a member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, having recovered millions of dollars for my clients.
I have been practicing personal injury jury trial work since 1968 in courts in Dallas, Terrell and East Texas. I graduated from SMU in 1965 with a BA in English after attending the United States Military Academy at West Point. I graduated from SMU Law School in 1968.
From 2004-2012 I taught American jury trial law at Marie Curie Law School in Lublin, Poland. I have been the president of the Jefferson Carnegie Library in Jefferson, Texas, and was one of the founders and the first president of the Friends of the Jefferson Carnegie Library in 1993.
I play golf badly and enjoy it more than I should. I would welcome the opportunity to be your lawyer.
