Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Over my eighteen years of practice, I have worked in all areas of business and commercial litigation at both the trial and appellate levels. This experience includes mass toxic tort litigation, products liability, admiralty, first-party and third-party insurance litigation, multi-million dollar commercial litigation disputes, personal injury suits and public law matters. My appellate practice includes representing plaintiffs and defendants throughout the Texas intermediate courts of appeals, the Texas Supreme Court, the Southern District of Texas, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

My representative experience includes attending to various commercial litigation matters; representing plaintiffs and defendants in breach of contract actions related to indemnification agreements; first party and third party insurance litigation; post-trial motion practice, appellate briefing, motions for rehearing, and representing clients’ interests in discovery disputes and mandamus proceedings; and representing clients in appellate litigation matters throughout the courts of appeals at both the federal and state levels.

From 2011-2016, I served as a proud member of the team of Godwin P.C. lawyers representing Halliburton Energy Services, Inc. in the BP oil spill litigation.

I am proud of my professional honors, including being named by Law & Politics as an outstanding young lawyer in 2009-2016 Texas Rising Stars magazine, a designation given to lawyers to the top 2.5 percent of Texas attorneys who are under 40 years old or younger who are viewed by their colleagues as preeminent in their respective practice areas; also published in Texas Monthly and online at superlawyers.com. I have also been recognized for five consecutive years as a "Top Lawyer" in Houston by H Magazine and again in 2019. More recently, in 2016-2019, I was recognized as a Texas Superlawyer for my work in appellate litigation.
