About me


I run a small, civil litigation firm in downtown Houston, representing individuals and corporations locally and internationally. Our clients include large corporations, including major Houston custom-home builders, small businesses, as well as international clients from countries as far as Lebanon, Qatar, and Syria.


I attended the University of Texas School of Law, where I received the Dean's Acheivement Award in 1999.


I am licensed to practice law in all Texas State Courts and the Southern and Western Federal District Courts. I enjoy oral advocacy and writing, and get involved in the details of each case, working solo or teaming up with other attorneys.


Meeting new people and new clients helps me set new goals. I enjoy playing squash, body training, dance and reading. I have two boys, Julian (12) and Anderson (6). I speak Arabic and French.
