Find a Top Rated Lawyer
I learned the value of hard work and sacrifice from the years of my youth spent as a laborer in the Steel Mills of Western Pennsyvania and working with a jackhammer in the concrete construction business. The virtues of team work and commitment became part of my identity as a two sport varsity athlete in both high school and college. My three years as a starting defensive back for The Duquesne University Football Team fueled the competitive passion for excellence that I have always brought to my courtroom practice.
Many lawyers claim to be litigators. I am a trial lawyer, pure and simple. I have tried over 110 cases to a jury in 23 counties across the length and breadth of our great state of Texas. I have tried many other cases to Judges and have argued before the Court of Appeals more than ten times.
I spent the first 20 years of my practice defending Doctors, Businesses and sellers of alcoholic beverages in bodily injury and wrongful death lawsuits. I was hired by some of the largest insurance companies in the world to defend these cases in every corner of the state.
Over the last 10 years, I have represented families who have suffered catastrophic injury or wrongful death against those same insurance companies. I also represent small and medium sized companies in business litigation, both plaintiff and defense. i am often retained by the food and beverage industry for the defense of dram shop, premises, assault and battery and non-subscriber cases. My practice is statewide and occassionally extends to neighboring states as well.
