I am a native Texan and huge sports fan (Mavs, Red Sox, Liverpool). I take every opportunity I can to get out and experience a new place, culture, or adventure. My quest to see a game in every major league baseball stadium is right on track and should be completed within a few years.

Almost everyone I meet is surprised when they learn what I do and tells me that I don’t strike them as a “typical lawyer.” I take a lot of pride in this because I try to bring a unique approach to my work and look at all of my cases in a way that is different from the norm. I have found that a fresh approach to an old problem almost always leads to favorable results for my clients.
