I grew up in McKinney, Texas and have spent most of my life in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. My family and I recently relocated to Lubbock, and we are extremely happy to be back in the Hub City. I attended Texas Tech University and graduated cum laude in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I subsequently received my Juris Doctor from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now “Texas A&M University School of Law”).
While in law school, I was inducted into the Elliott Inn Chapter of the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society. Law students must be in the top third of their law school class at the time of selection to be invited to join the Elliott Inn Chapter of the Phi Delta Phi Legal Honor Society.
Following law school, I obtained my LL.M. in Taxation from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. After starting my law practice in 2011, I quickly realized that I did not want to spend the rest of my legal career engaged in tax planning or solving complicated tax problems. Fortunately, at this time, I also discovered that my niche criminal law practice focused on expunging and “sealing” criminal records was very rewarding because I was able to make a real difference in my clients’ lives.
In 2013, while reading an attorney profile piece on a popular legal blog, I learned about a consumer protection attorney who sues abusive debt collectors under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (the “FDCPA”). I was immediately fascinated by this attorney’s work and his consumer law practice. In 2014, I found my calling as a Texas consumer protection attorney after attending Pete Barry’s FDCPA Boot Camp.
I am a regular attendee at the National Consumer Law Center’s Fair Debt Collection Practices Conference. I am also a past attendee at the National Association of Consumer Advocates’ Auto Fraud Conference and also regularly attend the national Fair Credit Reporting Act Conference.
When I am not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing tennis, road biking, traveling, listening to live Texas/Red Dirt music, and watching almost any Texas Tech sporting event.
