When it comes to my job/career I'm as competitive and driven as anyone I’ve ever met or known. I am known for taking a personal interest in my clients and their well beings, and zealously representing them, even at the cost of stepping on the oppositions toes. I had much success at an early age and was fortunate to have exceptional people around me, and to mentor me.
I am new to AVVO, so my page is still a work in progress. However it is coming together. Throughout the years I have been fortunate to represent some of the most popular and legendary professional athletes in history (especially from Texas-like Rodney Thomas and Quentin Jammer) as well as practicing law on a very high level. I was fortunate to be trained and mentored by the best lawyers to ever live after having been one of the youngest lawyers ever accepted and to be a graduate of Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College. From Gerry Spence to Johnny Cochran, Rikki Kliemann, Joe Jamail, Robert Shapiro, Garvin Isaacs, Milton Grimes, Richard "Racehorse" Haynes, Morris Dees, and many many others I was given nearly unprecedented access to their vast and cumulative knowledge and spent several summers at Gerry’s.
Currently I have the privilege of officing with some the elite criminal lawyers in Houston and am blessed to be in such select company, and be able to bounce ideas off each other, help each other, and at times try cases together. As a result of having success, I also made some powerful enemies who jumped on the opportuntity to try and slander my reputation and get me in trouble with the Bar despite it being my first complaint. However I used that time to better myself. Also after traveling and living around the world several years ago, I am fortunate and happy to have returned to the occupation in which I feel and was regarded to be at the pinnacle of my profession. Further I was considered by my peers and former clients to be as talented, gifted, and honorable as any of the other lawyers in my generation. Several lawyers and Judges referred to me as “the most gifted attorney to ever come out of Brazoria County”. I have the results, references, and accolades that firmly establishes me in select company - setting records and compiling over 15 years of not guilty verdicts, dismissals, and plea bargains as a Criminal Trial Lawyer with few blemishes.
Over the past two years I’ve listed every case I have handled as first chair, and am confident that there are few others that can claim a better body of work. Perhaps similar, but better? I would be pleasantly surprised. I was equally renowned and successful in one of the most difficult occupations/areas of Entertainment Law - as a NFL Sports Agent. However I have not commenced my come back in that area at this time. My time is spent solely on trial law, and 95% criminal trial law. My biggest issue with AVVO is that my rating is severely lowered bc of the Bar and how much weight AVVO places on having an issue with the Bar with no behind the scene facts or knowledge.
