About me

Born in Houston, TX in 1981. Moved to Hallettsville, TX in 1988 where I lived until 1996. From 1996 till 1998 I lived in Estevayer-le-Lac, Switzerland where I attended L’Institut du Sacré Coeur. I achieved fluency in French and studied international commerce and law. I returned to America and enrolled at Texas A&M University where I got a BS in Agribusiness. I spent the next two years working in the banking industry, and then enrolled in Baylor Law School. While at Baylor Law, I did an internship with the law firm of Cabinet du Kap-Herr in Paris, France. I also served as the law clerk for the 54th district court in McLennan County, TX. I graduated from Baylor Law in 2009. I went to work in Beaumont TX For the Ferguson firm where I practiced Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Law. While at the Ferguson Firm, I tried several cases and obtained many favorable results including $825’000 settlement in an on the job closed head injury, $350’000.00 verdict in a slip and fall case, and a $500’000.00 settlement in a carbon monoxide exposure case. I then returned to Waco and joined Giles & Giles in 2011 where I practice Personal Injury, Criminal, and Family Law. I am married to Sabrina Braus who is the President of Purchase Escrow Services and we have one Daughter named Madlenne. I consider myself a sports fan, and I enjoy all sports, but there is a special place in my heart for College and Professional Football. I am also a very poor golfer. I am passionate about being a lawyer, and I especially love being in the courtroom. I am licensed to practice Law in Texas state court as well as in the Eastern, Southern, and Western Districts of Texas. I am a member of The State Bar of Texas, Texas Young Lawyers Association, Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity, McLennan County Bar Association, McLennan County Criminal Defense Lawyer Association, and The Aggie Bar Association.
