My Austin-based practice focuses on just a few areas: civil litigation involving real estate or mortgages; civil appeals; and HOA and real estate law. I do some debt collection, typically as a court-appointed turnover receiver to take possession of assets on the court's behalf.

I don't represent banks or HOA's, and I don't sue consumers.

I brief and argue state and federal civil appeals in the Texas Supreme Court, Texas appellate courts, the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
