I was was born in the oil camp town of Phillips, Texas, close to Amarillo.  I graduated from Tascosa High School and attended Amarillo Junior College and George Washington University where I received my B.A. and M.A.  While in Washington, D.C., I worked as United States Congressman Patrick Caffery’s Legislative Assistant.  Prior to leaving GWU, I studied overseas visiting Portugal, South Africa, Thailand, and Japan.

I attended law school at the University of Houston Law Center where I interned in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office and United States Attorney’s Office.  I was also a member of the International Moot Court Team and the Order of Barristers.

Professionally, I was  a trial attorney for the Interstate Commerce Commission in Washington, D.C.  I was hired by U.S. Attorney John Clark in San Antonio and served in that position for three years.

Afterwards, I accepted a position as the General Counsel for the Coca-Cola Bottling Company in Guatemala City, Guatemala.  I facilitated the sale of the company and liaison with the franchisor.

Returning to Houston, I entered private practice and started my own firm that handled civil and criminal litigation.  During the last twenty-five years I have tried a wide range of criminal cases including sexual assault and drug conspiracy cases.  My expertise extends to ATV – recreational vehicles with jury verdicts of $8 million in Edinburgh, Texas and $30 million in Brownsville, Texas.  I also represent plaintiffs in legal malpractice cases.

In the last ten years, I have focused my practice on defending attorneys, doctors, and judges, along with other professionals.  On a weekly basis, throughout the state,  the other attorneys in my office and I are appearing before Evidentiary Grievance Hearings or Disbarment Trials.  I am also a frequent speaker on legal and medical ethics, professional topics, and the author of many articles.

In the community, I have served as a volunteer with Amigos de las Americas in Guatemala and on the Amigos Board of Directors.  I have served on the Board of Directors of the University of Houston Law Center Alumni Association, and as the President of the Association from 1992-1993.  Most recently, I have competed in USA Master Swimming competitions and Senior Olympics Swimming at the local and state levels.

You just received a letter from the Texas Board of Law Examiners' Director of Fitness and Character informing you that you do not meet the standards of character or fitness and will thus not be admitted to the State Bar of Texas. The letter further informs you that a finding of standards deficiency will become final if you do not request "...in writing, a hearing before the Board...." If you want to provide any additional evidence, you have to request a hearing. You being a law student, do you really need a lawyer? Here are some reasons that may help you.
