I grew up in South Georgia where I was raised on traditional values and southern cooking. It comes down to minding your manners and finding joy in the simple things, really. I was always near woods or a farm. Even as a child I found peace in those woods and being around horses, cows and dogs. I was trusted with firearms at a young age. Hard to imagine a 12 year old boy, alone in the woods with a rifle these days. I know what it means to take on a responsibility. I know the value of someone's trust.

Coming from a long line of musicians, I played in bands professionally, even doing a stint at Disney World. I still record from time to time. Music heals many wounds. And draws us together.

I have two children and two dogs. The wife decided to split, so I know what that feels like.

I went to law school in Alabama where I met some Texans. Texas and Texans struck me as different and my kind of people. So, here I am. I do love Texas.

In the past fourteen years I have practiced divorce, custody and criminal law in Texas. I have seen the good and certainly the bad. People make mistakes and people have mistakes done to them. Sometimes, you just need a little help. When you have a legal problem on top of an emotional one, it is mighty hard to sort through it yourself. That is where I come in. I know the law, and I know what going through a divorce feels like.

I don't believe in drawing a case out for no good reason. If you need to split the sheets, best get it done quick and turn the page. Problem is, not everybody feels that way. Most folks don't really want a trial. So, get the thing set, get ready, then settle up. The good news is, it will end. I will be with you. Do right by me, and I'll do right by you.

If you are having some legal trouble, give me a call. I can help you.

Q. How do I get my 21 yo daughter out of her dad's house w/her stuff safely?
A: If you and she are concerned about her safety, then she should get out of there and leave the stuff. Otherwise, you might be able to get a restraining order.
Q. My wife filed papers her self to divorce me. I have no problem with this however the vehicle she has in her possession
A: Your wife will have to agree to assume the note on the car. If refuses to cooperate, then you will need to call a temporary order hearing. In the hearing you will need to ask the judge to order her to assume the note if she is to keep the car. That will then need to reduce what the judge says to an enforceable order. So, if she does not willingly refinance the car into her name, a lawyer will be handy to take her to court to either take on the note or give the car back.
