I was working as a lawyer, representing whoever needed me for whatever they needed. I found that, well, people don’t like lawyers very much.
In fact, when I told my uncle I was going to law school, he stopped and stared at me. Then he said, “People don’t like those folks much. Why would you want to do that?”
I didn’t have an answer. You’d think I would have taken the hint.
After a few miserable years as a new lawyer, I decided enough is enough. If I am going to practice law, I am going to do it the right way — the way people like and can understand. Who knows? Maybe they will even like their attorney!
I wanted to help families and kids in a fundamental way. This meant focusing on the family finances and their legal safety. Even on such life-changing issues such as who is going to care for those precious babies after a car wreck takes mom and dad away? These are things as a lawyer I learned that I should worry about for a family.
Business Formation, Business Planning and Protection
Also, if the family has a business, I want to be there to help make it successful and well-protected. I want to use my creativity to ensure the entrepreneurs in the clan are successful and not have to worry about legal issues while they build!
My dad was too busy living to consider that he might die at age 53. He worked himself into a grave but did leave a decent estate; however, no will.
Having experienced personally how sad it can be to see a lifetime of wealth go down the tube — I now have a great deal of litigation experience.
In addition, I am now experienced in negotiating with passionate families to get their estate distributed quickly and with the least amount of legal expense possible.
Contested Probate (Will and Trust Battles, Inheritance Problems)
While you may read my story and think I am too soft, think again, I am a litigator.
When the family feud is on, I say bring it!
I have taken apart Trusts, Protected Trusts, stopped fraud dead in its tracks in estate battles. And against law firms in tall ivory towers and small militant law firms. Bring ’em!
I use every means ethical and legal to ensure the rights and property of my clients are protected and secured.
I work for you!
By the way — as a lawyer — I answer the phone and accept texts. Try finding that elsewhere! I dare you!
I graduated from Southern Methodist University with a double major, one in Accounting and one in Marketing. From there, I got an MBA at University of Dallas, and finished with a JD at Texas A&M University School of Law formerly called Texas Wesleyan.
My two kids keep me very busy with golf tournaments, concerts, and college life, topped off by a long list of other teenage activities.
