    Attorney Profile

    I have been practicing civil litigation in Central Texas for 35 years.  While doing insurance defense in the 80's and 90's, I practiced with some of the best trial lawyers in the state. Since 1995, I have used those skills to represent parties on both sides of the docket with an emphasis on business litigation.  I am Board Certified in both Personal Injury Trial Law and Consumer and Commercial Law.  Since 2008, I have taught the Consumer Protection class as an Adjunct Professor at Baylor Law School.  Until recently I wrote the annual Supplement to the Texas DTPA Forms and Practice Guide (James Publishing).  I currently contribute the update on Consumer Protection in the General Practice Digest (State Bar of Texas General Practice Section) published three times per yearI maintain an active trial docket and continue to try cases to jury verdicts in Central Texas courtrooms.
