I am an attorney licensed for 18 years in Texas and the last 4 years in Mississippi. I have been an insurance and asbestos defense attorney, an asbestos plaintiff's attorney, and a personal injury attorney. I have also worked with various unions and I am currently working with the Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA). I do a variety of things for TMPA and the 15,000 officer members around the state. I really enjoy helping people and with the role that I have now, I get to do just that every day!
