Practice/Organization Description

Although I take on a variety of cases and clients, I maintain a court centric litigation focus. I look for any kind of case with a "V" in it. Whether it be the State v Defendant, Husband v Wife or Plaintiff v Defendant, I like the cases that get me into court. My bread and butter comes from putting a case in front of the jury or arguing in front of a court as well as all that it takes to get there. Attorneys from around Houston and Texas hire me to go to court for them and to try their cases. I handle all the paperwork quite well and like it but for me the courthouse holds the most promise.

In the years since law school, I have worked as an assistant district and county attorney trying criminal cases. Then I went in house with a large insurance company to try civil cases. I topped that off by joining a firm that specializes in workers' comp so I honed my administrative hearing skills. This experience results in someone who is happiest when in court. Recently, I have taken a personal injury case to the jury as a plaintiff and defended a commercial case. I narrowly avoided going to trial in a criminal case the next week.

When my cases go to trial, I put a heavy focus in to preparing for voir dire. To me, jury selection can make or break the case while setting the tone of the trial. Part of my preparation centers around reviewing the case law and examining my case with a critical eye for flaws that need to be addressed. This provides an excellent way to prepare the case. Furthermore, jury selection provides an excellent opportunity to begin to argue the facts and build a rapport with the jury. I really enjoy this portion of the trial.

Lately, I have been doing more and more commercial litigation. The clients ask me to get the money owed to them from a business transaction. In fact, that represents most of my practice. I pursue the debtors and collect the judgments. I also help those who had default judgments entered against them. Those cases tend to get me to court more frequently then people expect. I also actively look for criminal cases and find myself in the criminal courts frequently.
