AS A BOARD CERTIFIED SPECIALIST IN PERSONAL INJURY TRIAL LAW, I receive twice as many hours each year of continuing legal education than attorneys who are not board certified. This allows me to maintain a high level of expertise in my trial practice. Although most cases settle without a trial, I have extensive experience in courtrooms around East Texas and love fighting for my clients to the maximum degree.

Martindale-Hubell is the rating system for attorneys throughout the United States. Attorneys are rated confidentially by their peers. My rating of AV “Preeminent” means that my peers have found my ability as an attorney to be the “Highest Level of Professional Excellence” and my ethical standards to be unquestioned. My overall client rating stands at 5.0 out of 5.0.
