Summary

I represent plaintiffs who have been hurt. I am board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law and handle catastrophic personal injury cases, but I also practice construction, securities, and complex commercial litigation, for companies and individuals. I am a native Houstonian and attended St. Thomas High School where I currently serve on the board. I went to Harvard and graduated with high honors, magna cum laude, in 2004. At Harvard, I served as Historian of the Harvard Political Union, the College's debating society, and as Secretary of Harvard CHANCE, a group dedicated to mentoring and tutoring students from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. While participating in the leadership of CHANCE, I also helped two recently-immigrated students prepare for their English as a Second Language exam. After graduating from college, I came back to Texas for law school, finishing with Honors from the University of Texas School of Law in 2007. During my time there, I served as Development Editor of The Review of Litigation and as Chair of the Career Services Committee of the Thurgood Marshall Legal Society. In my final year, I participated in the school’s first Supreme Court Clinic. We convinced the United States Supreme Court to review our client's case during a term in which the Court agreed to hear only 78 of the 8,517 cases filed. After graduation, I returned to Houston to clerk for the Honorable Jerry E. Smith of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. During my time with Fifth Circuit, I worked on cases ranging from insurance law to administrative law to one of the most watched white-collar criminal cases of the 21st century. I then worked for two years at the Houston trial firm that pioneered contingent-fee commercial litigation, handling bet-the-company litigation.
