I knew I wanted to fight for injured victims ever since clerking in my third year of law school with a plaintiff's personal injury firm in Lubbock, Texas. There, I cultivated an unwavering passion for helping victims and families navigate some of most difficult times in their lives. After graduating law school, I dedicated my professional career to advocating on behalf of the injured and the wronged, and using my experience and legal knowledge to protect their rights when they needed it most.
Over my career, I have tried numerous jury trials in Counties throughout Texas, including Tarrant, Collin, and Dallas County, and have helped numerous clients secure full and fair compensation for their losses in cases ranging from car accidents and trucking wrecks to serious injuries and wrongful death. I have also taken and defended in excess of 100 depositions, and have argued and appeared at dozens of civil hearings. I am proud of the reputation I've earned among the local and legal communities as a proven trial attorney who fights for their clients, and I believe it is a natural product of my passion for justice.
A native of Fresno, California, I grew up in a large family with a rich history of farming and worked in the fields of my family's farms since I was a child until I went to law school. This experience instilled in me the meaning of hard work, and it is something I draw from when fighting for clients in civil cases that have the potential to make real differences in their futures.
After earning a degree in Political Science with an emphasis in speech communications from Pepperdine University, I attended law school at Texas Tech University School of Law, where I was active in both inner school and national advocacy programs. This includes winning the Advanced Mock Trial competition, serving on 5 national trial teams and being a two-time national champion, national semi-finalist, and regional champion. I was also awarded 5 top oralist awards in law school and was inducted into the National Order of Barristers, earning the "hall of fame" award for advocacy" prior to graduation.
