I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and educated in the Catholic school system attending St. Andrew's School and Nolan Catholic High School. College was two years at Stephen F. Austin State University transferring to University of Texas at Arlington where I graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and a Paralegal Certification in 1986. After working through college at a candy factory for Christmas, horseback/camp counselor for the summer and restaurants during the year, I went on to work as a paralegal in personal injury law. During those years I was quite active in competitive soccer and bicycling. In 1994, I enrolled in Texas Wesleyan School of Law (now Texas A & M University School of Law) graduating in 1997.  There I continued my paralegal work and was a member of the Law Review. Following law school I had the privilege of working with my father's firm which I enjoyed. Having sufficiently learned the business side of a law practice, I opened my own office in 2007.

My philosophy in law practice is to get your problem worked out with the least amount of controversy. That is to say, attempt a resolution before we have to go to the courtroom. I have been successful in getting cases worked out by way of informal negotiation and formal mediation. I am no stranger to the courtroom and have had much success there when other methods failed. My practice includes cases in drafting of wills, power of attorney and other real estate planning documents, estate administration, guardianship and fiduciary responsibility in estates.
