Please include all relevant details from your case including where, when, and who it involves. Case details that can effectively describe the legal situation while also staying concise generally receive the best responses from lawyers.

By submitting this lawyer request, I confirm I have read and agree to the Consent to Receive Messages, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy
Any lawyer can work you out a deal. Only a lawyer with experience and a reputation as a fighter can get you the best outcome. Don't plea bargain away your future.

I am first and most importantly - a trial lawyer. This means I actually argue cases in State, Federal and Military Courts. My focus is on fighting and winning at trial. I do not screen out or decline cases merely because they may be distasteful or complex. I will take your case if I believe that I can help you achieve a positive outcome.

I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. After attending school and my active duty service, I returned to El Paso. I am a graduate of Ysleta High School, the New Mexico Military Institute, and the University of Houston. I received my law degree from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

I am a solo practitioner and my primary office is located in El Paso, Texas. I am willing to travel to other states and even internationally when called upon. I am licensed and qualified to practice law by:

Supreme Court of Texas (State Bar No. 24010247)
The State Bar of Texas
The Federal District Court for the Western District of Texas
The Federal District Courts for the State of Colorado
The Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit
The Court of Criminal Appeals for the Armed Forces
The United States Supreme Court

After law school I worked as an Assistant District Attorney for El Paso County for nearly a year. I then resumed my career with the U.S. Army in the Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG). I retired from the Army in 2014 after 25 years of service. During my Army career I had the opportunity to prosecute and defend soldiers in cases worldwide. My career included deployments to Europe with the 1st Armored Division, and the Middle East, with the 1st Infantry Division.

It is not my practice to take on a high volume of cases and plead them out as quickly as possible. I also don't refuse cases because they are hard. Lots of lawyers cherry pick cases so that they can build stats. I don't keep stats - I represent individuals and everyone's case is different.  

Everyone's case is unique and what is best for you might not be the same as what is best for the next person. I look at your interests, the facts and circumstances of the case, and the realistic possibilities. My goal is to provide the best representation possible, tailored to your needs and objectives. Although I cannot guarantee any particular outcome (and nothing on this website should be construed as a guarantee of any certain result in any case), I do promise you will get my best.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Why You Should Be Very Careful What You Say After a St. Louis Car Accident
Here is why you should be careful and avoid saying anything that could be interpreted as admitting guilt after a car accident.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage: Don’t Leave Home Without (Plenty) Of It
While most people know that they must carry liability insurance coverage in California or risk losing their driving privilege, few people realize that while liability insurance protects you in cases where you are at fault, it provides you no benefit where, as is often the case, you are the victim of somebody’s else’s negligence. The coverage that will provide you with invaluable protection and in an amount you choose to purchase, is Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage.
Insurance Companies In the Driver’s Seat: How to Level the Playing Field And Improve Your Chances Of Recovering The Damages To Which You Are Entitled
In years past people injured in accidents could rely on insurance companies making reasonable offers for the losses they sustained. As the saying goes, those days are gone! In the last few years the long standing rights of injured people to receive fair compensation for their losses including compensation for their medical expenses, loss of earnings and for the pain and suffering they experienced have been severely limited by our Courts and a series of decisions that have diminished the rights of victims and emboldened the insurance companies to make offers of settlement that are not merely inadequate but often insulting.
