About me

I am a named partner who is board certified in Labor and Employment and have been recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer. I represent private and public employers in the areas of employment, labor, and immigration issues.

I help companies with any employment matter that may arise in the workforce, whether it involves human resources consulting, representation during a government investigation, or defending a client in litigation or arbitration. Based on my experience, I provide value to my clients by helping them implement best practices and resolve employment disputes in and out of court.

In addition to helping companies navigate the complex areas of employment law, I regularly represent companies during high stake ICE raids and investigations and help implement Form I-9 best practices. I help companies implement immigration compliance initiatives in conjunction with AUSA non-prosecution agreements and help companies manage the submission of Form I-9s and notice of suspect employees during an ICE investigation.
