About me

I am a civil trial lawyer who has tried a significant number of cases to a jury verdict in both commercial and personal injury matters. In addition, I have handled a number of appeals in a variety of courts. After working as a briefing attorney for the Texas Supreme Court, I worked with a number of law firms, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in Houston, Texas from 1985 to 2010. In 2010, I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada for family reasons and am now practicing in Nevada.
