About me

     If you want a lawyer who will be loyal, honest, and dedicated to your cause, then contact me. 

     Results in any case depend on the facts, the law, and the circumstances of each. We have successfully obtained multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for many clients, most recently a $7,241,052.47 jury verdict on September 11, 2015 in Jefferson County District Court for Steven Hebert vs. Price & Co., an auto-pedestrian accident resulting in severe injuries, hospitalization and multiple surgeries.

     I am licensed in all state and federal courts and appeal courts in Texas, my partner in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.

     We are here to help you.
