Background and Current Law Practice

As soon as I could ride my bike across one of St. Petersburg, Florida’s busiest streets, I went to work. My first job was at Tyrone T.V. where I was the laborer carrying very heavy tube televisions up and down stairs as delivery or repair helper. At the same time, I started my own lawn mowing business which meant that I was mostly mowing sand and sand spurs rather than grass in my neighborhood on days with 90 degree temperatures and 100% humidity. I grew up in a 1500 square foot cinder block house 3 miles inland from St. Petersburg’s beautiful Gulf beaches. My dad was a career claims man for the Veteran’s Administration and my mom worked in retail.  They taught me the value of education and hard work. In high school, I worked at a seafood market selling fish to retail customers and later I was a cashier at Costco. Both jobs taught me the skills of dealing with people, team work and customer service. I also ran a solo weather station at The Science Center where I developed an early interest in evidence, data, and factual investigations.

 

Leadership positions throughout high school and college on the basketball team, school newspaper, and campus government improved my writing and advocacy while honing the importance of team work. Work during college for a Texas State Senator and the United Way gave me a passion for community service and outreach.

 

Today, as the head of the firm’s Houston, Texas office, I handle  matters involving trucking accidents, contract and business disputes, personal injury defense, products liability, premises liability, construction accidents and insurance coverage and property disputes. I have the privilege of being  AV® rated by Martindale-Hubbell which is recognition for the highest legal ability and ethical standards as evaluated by my peers.  My greatest privilege is the trust shown by my clients allowing me and my team to represent them all across the State of Texas.
