I work with clients to help them succeed, whether this involves setting up a new business, working with them to understand and work within the requirements of complicated federal and state laws, resolving firearm legal issues, or preparing their wills, trusts (including firearm trusts), and other estate planning documents.
I can work with you to:
I am licensed to practice law in the states of Texas and California. I have also been admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the Northern and the Eastern Districts of California.
While my practice is not limited to firearm businesses and those owning firearms, my unique qualifications help businesses and individuals with their firearm-related, legal concerns. I have authored two volumes on firearm laws. Volume 1 explains federal firearm laws and Volume 2 explains Texas firearm laws.
I support the Second Amendment as it was intended and believes this right must not be infringed. Until these infringements have been removed, however, I work with clients to help them understand and comply with these laws so they can exercise this right recognized under the Bill of Rights. I am an Endowment Life Member of the National Rifle Association and also a member of the Texas State Rifle Association, the California Rifle and Pistol Club, the Second Amendment Foundation, and the U.S. Concealed Carry Association.
I began my professional career in 1985 after obtaining a B.B.A. in accounting. I immediately passed the national exam and worked as a C.P.A. for several years. During that time I gained a solid understanding of the financial and management issues facing businesses, as well as their tax and regulatory burdens. I earned my law degree in 1991 and began practicing law in California and later in Texas. During more than twenty-five years of practicing law, I have represented businesses and individuals in a wide range of legal areas, including tax and regulatory issues, civil litigation, estate and business planning, and pursuing appeals in state and federal courts.
