“The future has several names. For the weak it is impossible. For the faint hearted it is unknown. For the thoughtful and valiant, it is ideal.” – Victor Hugo

I am a native to the Dallas area having grown up in Plano.  I attended high school at Dallas Jesuit and subsequently obtained my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University in College Station.  I began my legal career in oil and gas practicing for a large producer with extensive operations in the Marcellus Shale.  I quickly transitioned into litigation where I have succeeded in providing my clients with favorable results that frequently exceed expectations.
