About me

I was born in Kirbyville, Texas and raised around the Houston area. I attended college at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Philosophy. After college, I attended South Texas College of Law.


I began practicing law in 2011 and also serve as an adjunct professor at South Texas College of Law. My entire legal career has been dedicated and restricted to civil litigation. I enjoy aggressively representing my client and work hard to make sure they get the best results possible.


My family and I live around the Houston area and enjoy all of Houston's sports teams.
