I have been a practicing lawyer since 1997 and have been board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in the area of family law since 2004. Throughout my career, I have actively participated in a wide range of cases, including criminal, appellate, contempt, and personal injury matters. My dedication has been particularly prominent in the realm of family law, where I have been involved in countless lawsuits concerning families over the past 20 plus years.
I was born in Dallas, Texas and grew up in DeSoto. After graduating from DeSoto High School, I attended the University of North Texas. My parents placed a premium on education and made it clear that they would do whatever it took to support me through college both financially and emotionally. I enjoyed college tremendously, and after my second or third sophomore year, my folks determined that their emotional support was sufficient. With no money and no marketable skills, I enlisted in the Navy Reserves to serve my country, learn a trade, and get some discipline.
After boot camp and a temporary active duty stint, I returned to finish my degree at UNT and, subsequently graduated from Baylor Law School. I currently reside in Trophy Club, Texas with my wife of twenty seven years, Katy, and our two kids, Savannah and Drake.
