Attorney Profile

After being involved in the legal community for over 20 years as a senior litigation paralegal, I was finally allowed the opportunity to attend Law School and fulfill the lifelong dream of being a lawyer. I carried into law school two Board Certifications as a Paralegal, (Civil Trial Law 2004 & Personal Injury Trial Law 2002) and passed the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam in 1997.  I spent many years active as a member in the State Bar of Texas Paralegal Division and in the Dallas Area Paralegal Association as the Community Service/Pro Bono chairperson and chairperson of the Personal Injury/ Medical Malpractice Section.

I enjoy speaking to upcoming Paralegal students, presenting Continuing Legal Education seminars, and mentoring Paralegals.  I enjoy being a leader in this industry, with a firm that knows how to make things happen.  I have an extensive track record as a senior litigation/double board certified paralegal, and bring many years of dedication to the legal field, practical trial  skills, a keen ability to interact with clients, and extensive litigation experience, as well as the personal attention and interaction that clients deserve.
