About me

When I am away from the office, I am involved in all types of family activities with my beautiful wife, Kristina, and our four children. I enjoy just about anything golf or baseball related, and Texas Aggie football is an annual teaser, as I am always hoping 'this will be the year."

In the office I am a firm believer that my client's money and my time are best used when we focus on the issue(s) that could resolve the case as early and cost-effectively as possible. I do not believe that the lawyer that yells the loudest or sets the most hearings is best for every client. It's about creating a strategy that's right for the individual client.
