I was born in the Bay Area of California. My family and I arrived in Houston on July 4, 1970, right after High School. I attended Jr. College for two years before joining the US Navy. I was honorably discharged as an AW-2 (E-5) in July 76, having held down Full Lieutenant jobs in Classified Com-munications and Classified Material Control at Squadron, OX Div (USS Saratoga), and Air Wing levels in addition to my duties as an Airborne Anti-Submarine Operator. My security clearance was “Secret No Forn”.
I immediately restarted school, first at HCC to certify my auto mechanic expertise, and shortly went to work at Shell Westhollow Research Lab for four years, assisting in the conduct of fuels and lubricants testing. In May, 78, I restarted College at UH Central Campus, graduating with a 3.67 gpa (math! Ugh!) in Political Science in August, 1980. On September 1st, I started Law School at UH College of Law, graduating in Dec. 1983 with a Juris Doctoral Degree. I was licensed in September, 1984.
I have successfully practiced Criminal Law for nearly 31 years. I have been a Bar Leader and am recognized as an authority on Traffic Law, teaching the other lawyers practicing in that area almost every year since 1995. While we still accept traffic cases, we accept only those filed in Municipal and Justice Courts located in Harris County. Our emphasis has shifted to Felony and Misdemeanor Cases, which we happily accept in Harris, and the 7 Counties surrounding it.
