About me

I am a 3rd generation lawyer - our firm was started in 1930 by my grandfather.  Today, I practice law with my father and three other lawyers in our firm that specializes in personal injury and wrongful death litigation and all civil litigation.  I grew up in Beaumont, graduated from West Brook High School in 1988.  I attended Baylor University for both undergraduate studies (political science) and law school.  After graduation, I immediately began handling the cases of my clients - victims of wrongful and tortious conduct in a wide variety of areas including 18-wheeler, products liability, and dangerous premises cases, construction acccident cases, victims of burns, brain injuries and sexual assault, victims of professional negligence, including attorney malpractice and other types of fraud or commercial litigation.  When not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my three children, ranching and spending time promoting conservation and wildlife management.  I am a lifelong member of First United Methodist Church in Beaumont.
