For almost 25 years, I have concentrated on business and employment disputes, which I have handled at all stages from inception through appeal to the Texas Supreme Court. These include contract issues, partner and shareholder disputes, non-compete covenants and trade secrets, real estate issues, employment litigation, and defense of workplace injury claims.
 
I have jury and non-jury trial experience in both the federal and state court systems, and I have handled a number of arbitrations and mediations and attended the National Institute for Trial Advocacy's intensive trial skills program.
 
I bring strong research and writing skills to my practice. While attending South Texas College of Law, I served as managing editor of the South Texas Law Review, where I was recognized for excellent writing, and I later became editor in chief of the Houston Bar Association's nationally respected magazine, The Houston Lawyer. I am a frequent contributor to the Houston Business Journal and have also published numerous articles and other local, state, and national publications.
 
I feel strongly about giving back to our community. I am active in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which I joined as a life member in 1996, and I am a member of its board of directors and serve on the International Committee and the Wine Competition and Auction Committee and the Magazine Committee. I also have volunteered substantial time to the Houston Bar Association and am a recipient of the HBA President's Award, given to a select few of the HBA's committee chairmen each year based on outstanding service. I also am active with Citizen's for Animal Protection, a Houston-based animal shelter that provides a wonderful service for wayward dogs, cats, and other animals in the Houston area.
