Cell 214-402-4364

It has been a very busy fall for me professionally. However, the work has been rewarding because not only have the case subjects been diverse, I have also been able to obtain some great case results for clients–for example:

DWI With Car Accident – Not Guilty Verdict

Assault Family Violence (client was ultimately the victim)– Case Dismissed

Theft of Service – Case Dismissed

Theft – Case Dismissed

Harboring a Runaway – Case Dismissed

Represented a Physician Assistant before the Texas Physician Assistant/Texas Medical Board for unprofessional conduct stemming from a DWI charge. — All charges were dismissed following an Informal Settlement Conference before the Medical Board.

Defended a dog that had bitten an employee at a dog kennel.  The city wanted to euthanize the dog and would not compromise on this in negotiations even though the person that had been bitten did not want the dog killed.  Following a hearing I was able to keep the dog alive and with his owner. ** This case I did pro bono for a friend—I hate to see animals in harms way!
