My entire career as a lawyer has been spent fighting for plaintiffs in personal injury cases. I graduated from South Texas College of Law in 1995. In 1994, I started as a law clerk at Simmons and Fletcher in what was supposed to be a clerk-only position with no room for advancement. I was responding to motions for summary judgment filed against the senior partner in personal injury cases. After passing the Texas Bar in 1995, I continued to work for the firm gaining more and more responsibilities. That evolved into an associate’s position and eventually, I became a Shareholder.
In 2005, I became Board Certification in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in 2005. I have been recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer by Thompson-Reuters 2017-2022, and a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers Association 2017-2022. In 2020 I received the Outstanding Mentor Award from the Houston Young Lawyer’s Association for mentoring other lawyers and aspiring lawyers.
I have also taught CLE courses on Dog Bite Law online for several companies.
