I went to college from 1983-1987 at SMU, then on to graduate school from 1987-1990 at Duke University (M.A.-English), and Duke Law School.
I clerked for a federal judge beginning in 1990, then practiced law in Washington DC until early 1998.
For a decade, I owned and operated a successful design/build firm (and still do the occasional project) and was licensed as a general contractor in several states.
I started practicing law in Texas in 2007. I work hard to preserve homeowner rights in HOA matters. I also routinely defend homeowners against improper and illegal foreclosures, including filing class actions when necessary.
In my free time, I am with my wife and three boys, and every morning before work, I write improbably long works of science fiction that have a great deal to do with sentient machines, genetically nonconforming humans, priests, and political malcontents.
I am honored to be a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation.
