My passion for problem-solving and taking on difficult challenges lead me down an unconventional path to becoming a family law attorney. As a teenager, I was fascinated by the television show Law & Order, not for the drama, but because of the twists and turns in each case, advocacy for justice, and the idea that great attorneys could genuinely make a difference in the lives of others.
Before becoming a lawyer, I joined the United States Army Reserves shortly after the terrorist attacks on 9/11, and spent approximately a year on active duty. Afterward, I decided to return to pursuing education at the University of Phoenix while working full-time, allowing me to put myself through college. Once I graduated, I dove into the financial industry, working in retail banking and financial investing. After several years helping others achieve their financial goals, I was still drawn toward the law. I decided on a whim to take the LSAT, which opened up great opportunities for law schools. After being accepted into South Texas College of Law, I realized becoming an attorney wasn’t just a dream anymore; it was becoming my reality.
As a child, I faced challenges from my parents divorce, an experience I would later face myself during my divorce as a young adult. Today, I’m married to my amazing wife and am a proud father to 3 beautiful sons and a dog. Being a husband and father has impacted my life in ways I couldn’t even imagine. Facing challenges of all sizes and overcoming them as a family has allowed me to become a better advocate for my clients.
Practicing family law allows me to do all the things I love every day. I firmly believe I can make a positive impact on my clients’ lives, and enjoy the opportunity to use my personal experiences to contribute to the wellbeing of my clients and their families.
