I have practiced law in Texas since 1999. My firm is a general civil litigation practice, with an emphasis on bad faith insurancepersonal injury, and long-term disability cases. I earned my J.D. with honors from The University of Texas School of Law in Austin, my M.A. in East Asian Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, and my B.A. in International Studies from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

Prior to starting my own firm, I was counsel at the multi-national law firm, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, LLP. I honed my litigation skills by representing insurance companies and corporations in a wide variety of matters in state and federal courts across the country. I am ready to put that experience to use in your case. My background in insurance defense allows me to anticipate how an insurance company will react to a claim, and the various tactics they utilize to deny benefits to victims.

I have significant jury trial experience, having tried a number of cases to verdict in Texas state court. I also maintain an active appellate practice, demonstrated by my roles as counsel in several ERISA cases before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth and Ninth Circuits.

If you are in need of high-quality legal services in San Antonio, TX, please contact my firm as soon as possible. My clients are my top priority, and I work my hardest to fiercely protect their rights both inside and outside of court. I accept cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you don't have to pay me a dime until I win your case.
