Practice/Organization Description

My practice focuses on civil appeals in the Texas Supreme Court, federal courts of appeals, and Texas intermediate courts of appeals. I have worked for a large corporate law firm, for a state attorney general, and as a judicial law clerk, giving me a solid basis for handling complex commercial or tort cases, as well as tricky procedural, statutory, and constitutional questions.

I also write the Supreme Court of Texas blog, which offers opinion summaries, practice notes, and updates on pending petitions.
