introduction: As an accomplished attorney with over 25 years of experience, I have represented individuals, businesses, and governmental entities with a special emphasis on property taxation. Focusing on this one area has allowed me to hone my legal skills to ensure the success of my clients involving their property tax needs.
Background: I am a native Texan being born and raised in Austin, Texas. After graduating from St. Edwards University in Austin with an Economics Degree I began work as a Property Casualty Underwriter before relocating to Houston. From here I obtained my law degree from South Texas College of Law Houston in 1996. This set the stage for my career as a Property Tax Attorney, courtesy of the Harris County Attorney's (HCA) office.While interning for the HCA, I assisted the Assistant County Attorney assigned to the Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD). And upon passing the bar I was offered the position of in-house counsel, which no major metropolitan appraisal district had at the time.
I am continually grateful for my service as a public attorney. For it provided clear insight into the inner workings of the property tax system in Texas. More importantly, this allowed me to long-standing relationships with some of the most well-respect professionals within the industry as well as some of my closest friends.
Personal Interest: The enthusiasm to do something one likes to do tells you a lot about that person's character and approach to life. My personal interest has always been fishing. You see my love for fishing isn’t founded on catching a huge fish … or even catching a fish at all. It instead allows me to be outdoors, enjoy the adventure and challenge presented, to experience the thrill of the chase ... to dream.
I go fishing I don't take the problems of the job with me, and I seldom contemplate deep legal issues when I'm out there.
