Professional Experience
Associate Attorney
McCathern Mooty, LLP
- Current
I have a diverse practice including negotiations and litigation for both Plaintiffs and Defendants. My experience is primarily in General litigation, Tort, Civil Rights and Employment law, although my practice is versatile and includes a broad range of practice areas.
Assistant Attorney General
Office of the Attorney General
-
Extensive Litigation, Pleadings, Appeals, and Negotiations: I defend the State of Texas in civil litigation filed against it's law enforcement agencies, and occasionally actions in quo warranto against judges or other elected officials. My practice is primarily in Tort and Civil Rights, and requires me to handle every aspect of litigation from the moment a claim is filed, including the appeal if appeal is taken. Due in part to the number of pro se inmates filing 1983 actions against the state, my division currently handles roughly 1/3 of all cases filed in federal court in Texas. So, in addition to the Texas state cases on my docket, I am fortunate to have a great deal of exposure to the Federal courts in my practice.
