Biography

I have been a lawyer for over 23 years. I first represented the other side of the docket for large corporate clients. I joined this firm over 15 years ago and began my life's work of representing working men and women. I am one of a small percentage of Texas lawyers who is Board Certified as a Personal Injury Trial Lawyer by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I am also a past chairman of The Texas State Bar’s Grievance Committee for District 4C. I have been named a Texas Super Lawyer by Texas Monthly Magazine, an honor shared by only 5% those practicing law in Texas for many years. I was also voted one of Houston's Top Lawyers for the People by H Texas magazine for multiple years.
