My approach to practicing law can be summed up as trying to help my client through a tough time. My legal career began working as a Landman for Exxon Company, U.S.A., based in Houston. I began attending lawyer events and decided I wanted to practice law differently, working for folks with problems that would most likely end up in a courtroom. I returned to Victoria, raised my family and with my partners, continued this fine law firm. My practice has taken me all over Texas and a few other states as well. If you need help, call us.
