I have always been fascinated by the law and medicine. Like many, my first exposure was as a child watching television and reading books. I loved stories with doctors and lawyers – from crime dramas to medical thrillers. I especially those that combined both. The best part was seeing good triumph over evil in the end whether it was in the courtroom or the operating room.

As a child, I had the opportunity to be able to spend time volunteering at a nursing home where I grew up. My experience with the elderly there taught me lessons that I carry with me through my life. While getting my degrees in Law Enforcement and Political Science, I landed a job working in a hospital and got to see first-hand real medical drama unfold. I also earned my EMT certification. After a couple of years there, and after being encouraged by a lawyer I knew, I decided to go to law school where I graduated with honors.

From there, it was only natural for me to pursue a legal path that combined law and medicine. I have spent my career as a lawyer in civil litigation, much of my focus has been spent helping people injured as a result of the wrong-doing of others. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work on many different types of cases and help many different people – ranging from victims of nursing home abuse and neglect, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents (inlcuding big trucks), and other types of catastrophic injuries.

As a lawyer, there is still nothing as rewarding as helping people fight and win their legal battles. I still find the law challenging and rewarding. I look forward to each new case and see it as an opportunity to help someone in need.

 In addition to my bar admissions in the State of Texas, I have been admitted to practice on a pro hac vice basis in Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, California, and Virginia.
