Biography

I grew up in Cleveland, Mississippi, in the heart of the Mississippi Delta.  I've always had a passion for the law and might say I was born into it, as my grandfather and father practiced law together and since I wanted to follow in their footsteps.  I interned for a Texas State Senator while attending the University of Texas in Austin prior to going to law school in Georgia.  After law school, I took and passed the Georgia Bar and worked as a real estate lawyer for a few years in Atlanta prior to moving to Houston, Texas.  In Houston, after passing the Texas bar in 2006, I worked for almost ten years representing injured workers' at a workers' compensation firm.  I saw many families torn apart due to clients' injuries and being unable to work and support their families. This sparked my passion in family law.  I took an active interest in assisting my clients during this trying time in their lives and making sure they received the best medical treatment possible and financial assistance for themselves and their families.  After becoming a partner at my previous firm, I was offered the opportunity to transition into practicing family law full time and jumped at the opportunity.  I am committed to diligently representing my clients in all areas of family law including divorce, property division, child custody, premarital and post martial agreements, adoptions, and child custody modifications.  Every case has its unique issues and challenges and I try find the ideal resolution for every client!
