As a Board Certified Family Law Attorney it is my goal to help people and their families in what can be the most difficult of times. I focus on the challenges of getting results for my clients and measure my success in terms of those results. I am determined to reach a beneficial resolution for my clients and creating a positive future to begin a new chapter of their lives.

After graduating from high school in Marshall, Texas, I attended Stephen F. Austin State University, where I received a bachelor’s degree in English.

Soon after, I enlisted in the United States Navy and entered the Nuclear Power Training Program. After completing Nuclear Field “A” School and Nuclear Power School in Orlando, Florida, I transferred to Charleston, South Carolina, and concluded my training aboard the MTS-635, Sam Rayburn. For my efforts, I was I was selected to serve on staff as an instructor.

In 1998 I transferred to the USS John C. Stennis, CVN-74 in San Diego California. I was deployed twice to the Persian Gulf, the last being in 2002, as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. During that final deployment, I earned the Navy Achievement Medal.

I completed my service in 2003 and returned to college at University of Texas at Tyler. I earned a second bachelor’s degree in history in 2004.  I enrolled in Texas Wesleyan University School of Law and graduated in December of 2007 with a juris doctor.

After graduation, I married my wife, Audrey. We have two children and now live in Hurst, Texas, and attend First Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth.

Serving my country, my community, and others has been my life in adulthood. Time not spent advocating on behalf of my clients, is spent with wife and children, camping, reading, and participating in the life of my church family.
