My immediate family farms throughout New Mexico, West Texas and Oklahoma. In fact, my grandfather drove a tractor until the day that he passed at the ripe old age of 89. As they say where I’m from: "He died with his cowboy boots on."

I was in my first semester of law school at that time, and the probate process was so traumatizing to my family that I was sure the attorney had committed malpractice. As it turned out, he did exactly what most probate attorneys do. I knew then that I could do much better, and I've been doing it...

I tried over 50 jury trials and, as a trial lawyer, I loved every minute of it, but as a human being, I came to realize that a trial in a courtroom is no place to restructure a family who is having to go through a divorce. The courtroom will finalize a divorce, but the collateral damage done to a family, especially the children, in a trial, is something from which they (and future generations) many never recover. Even though over 95% of all cases are settled before trial, few people consider the difference in a case that is settled...

As a child who grew up with divorced parents I personally know the effects of the separation of the family. I attended Texas A&M School of Law (at the time Texas Wesleyan) and was a member of the Mock Trial team and a member of Moot Court. After graduating from Texas A&M School of Law with honors (top 10%), I began working with the Small Business Administration aiding disaster victims. While with the...

I love helping people! For me, it is a great honor to serve as a trusted advisor to my clients. Through years of listening and learning, I’ve come to appreciate the fact that when people seek an attorney to help them, they want someone who will listen, understand their problem and give them sensible, practical advice, based on a thorough understanding of the law. I have found that listening and understanding is foundational to delivering the right solution. I gave up wearing ties years ago. Mostly because I really don’t like wearing them. But also, because when a client...

I am an experienced attorney working primarily in Estate, Trust, Wills, Real Estate, and Collaborative Divorce.

The Collaborative Process is a new way to settle your divorce case without going to court. It is totally private, you may schedule your meeting to fit your schedule, you and your spouse have total control of the matter, and the process allows the parents to salvage their parenting relationship and put the best interest of their children first.

Planning your estate?

Estate planning arranges for the transfer of an individual's estate at the time of death. An estate consists of all property owned at death before it is distributed by will, trust, or intestacy laws. An estate may contain both real property and personal property. Estate planning allows an individual to decide exactly who will benefit from his or her estate, and to what extent. It can also reduce the taxes imposed on the transfer of assets at death.

An experienced estate planning lawyer can help minimize the amount of the estate surrendered to taxes as well as ensure that the management and distribution of the estate is carried out according to your plans. Particularly when your plans are complex and/or you have substantial property or assets, it is important to have an attorney who can ensure that your plan functions the way you intend. Depending on the complexity of your individual situation, your estate planning team may include attorneys, financial planners, bankers and insurance professionals. Some states certify attorneys as estate planning specialists, which means they have met certain requirements for experience, education, and testing in that field.


Fiduciary: A person or institution who manages money or property for another and who must exercise a standard care imposed by law, i.e., personal representative or executor of an estate, a trustee, etc.

Personal representative: The person who administers an estate. If named in a will, that person's title is an executor. If there is no valid will, that person's title is an administrator.
