About me: I was raised in a small town in East Texas then studied architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington. From there I went on to law school thinking that someday I would represent architects in a niche practice. In law school I realized I enjoyed the courtroom and would prefer to be in a general practice helping everyday folks. I like to describe our firm as trial attorneys. I decided to settle in McKinney in 1994. At that time McKinney was a small town that was the county seat of a large county. We’ve grown since then. I have raised two daughters in McKinney. I could go on all day about them, yet we’re here to help you, right? I believe that our firm has been widely accepted by the general and legal community here in McKinney, and we are very thankful for the acceptance. I currently serve as Mayor Pro Tem for the city of McKinney. I still wear a cowboy hat to the courthouse each day as I’m honored to be a part of this great state. I hope that my work will pay back some of what life has brought to me and my family. I also stay active in the community and church to give back to God and the community for all that I have received. My favorite weakness is children and our firm donates to local children’s charities, as well as, participating on the local scale in programs benefiting children. The special needs community, please check out Cornerstone Ranch.

Again, I thank you for the time you spent looking at our firm. I hope that we may be able to help you or find someone who can. If not I wish you the very best and should we ever meet, please take a moment to let me know who you are. I would enjoy that.”
