Legal Experience

I have over thirty (30) years experience in the practice of law and have tried numerous cases to jury verdicts, including lawsuits involving PERSONAL INJURY, WRONGFUL DEATH, MEDICAL MALPRACTICE, PRODUCTS LIABILITY, DIVORCE, CUSTODY DISPUTES, PROBATE MATTERS, CAPITAL MURDERS, FELONY and MISDEMEANOR CRIMINAL CASES, DECEPTIVE TRADE PRACTICES and CONTRACT DISPUTES. I have extensive appellate experience in numerous types of civil and criminal cases. I am licensed in Texas State and Federal Courts as well as Appellate Courts.

“My professional passion is fighting for the rights of injured people against the abusive practices of insurance companies.” I am Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in the area of Personal Injury Trial Law. Despite my Board Certification, I maintain a small town general practice of law which allows for continued representation of valued clients in all their legal needs. My staff and I provide personal attention to our clients. We literally get to know you and you come to know us.

Having been born and raised in Lufkin, Texas has allowed me to be familiar with all the courts and judges in East Texas. The respect I receive from the Judges who know my reputation for diligence, honesty and fairness has proven very beneficial to my clients.

I am past President of the Angelina County Bar Association. I have also been allowed the honor of being named a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. ABOTA is an organization of veteran lawyers and Judges with the common goal of affording citizens access to the justice system and promoting professionalism and civility among the members of our profession. ABOTA’s membership includes the most well respected attorneys in the United States.
