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.
