I specialize in cases such as wrongful termination, employee discrimination, and recovery of unpaid overtime wages. I have tried over 100 cases to verdict and have specialized in employment cases for over 34 years. If you have a workplace problem, I can help.
I specialize in cases such as employee discrimination, commercial litigation, and violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). I am the only board-certified lawyer who exclusively represents employees in the Tyler/East Texas area and I am the only lawyer in the State of Texas who carries all three board certifications in Labor and Employment Law, Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Trial Law.
Choose a lawyer who is passionate about your situation and truly believes that there are two sides to every lawsuit. Get your day in court.
Providing Quality Service
I have 34 years of experience in representing employees and am dedicated to listening to your problems and making sure you receive the attention you deserve.
My clients appreciate my straightforward, honest attitude and desire to help others.
