About me

I was born in Fort Worth, Texas on April 11, 1967. I graduated from Mansfield High School, Texas in 1985.  Then graduating from Southwest Texas State University (Texas State University) in 1990 with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science.  I then graduated from Texas Weselyan University Law School in 1996(Texas A&M Unversity School of Law), receiving the Order of Barristers Honor in the third year.

After completing an internship at the Tarrant County District Attorneys office I immediately opened my own law firm.  I primarily focus my practice on personal injury litigation, including wrongful death cases, drowning cases, and catastrophic injuries.

I am a member of the State Bar of Texas, Tarrant County Bar Association, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Tarrant County Trial Lawyers Association (President 2014)(President Elect 2013)(Director 2008-2012), American Association for Justice Bar Association, Tarrant County Criminal Lawyers Association, and American Bar Association.

I am licensed in the State of Texas and the Northern and Western Districts of the United States District Court of Texas. 

I have successfully represented clients in numberous other states and even one case in the Phillippines.

I am married with one daughter.

I run a small boutique law firm that handles cases with a personal flavor.  I invite you to visit my website for more information about me or my practice.  See
