I have been practicing law for more than 26 years. In those years, the
practice of law has changed dramatically. And so has America's workforce
-- especially in the oilfield. But the people's need for consistent,
dedicated legal advice has stayed the same. I pride myself on giving my
clients a thoughtful analysis of their situation, a seasoned evaluation
of their rights and remedies, and a tailored plan of action. But mostly,
I pride myself on communication. I strive to explain every aspect of my
client's legal concerns--good or bad--so that together we can chart
the proper and most efficient course to achieve your purpose.
I have considerable experience handling all types of employment disputes,
including minimum and overtime wage disputes, tip pool violations, breach
of contract claims, and claims of wrongful termination/discrimination.
I have helped thousands of oilfield workers, technicians, hourly paid
and salaried employees all recover the unpaid wages they were owed. I
also help to negotiate executive compensation plans for professionals
wanting to accept a new position, as well as severance agreements for
those seeking to leave their current one. In addition, I have more than
26 years of experience representing clients and their families seeking
to recover damages as a result of injuries sustained due to the wrongful
conduct of others, including personal injury claims, medical malpractice
claims, prescription errors, and other acts of neglect.
I enjoy the practice of law, and I enjoy helping people recover the money
they are owed. I was born and raised locally (i.e. Houston)--but I represent
clients all across the nation. In addition to my law practice, I frequently
lecture at local and national bar conferences and trade associations on
issues pertaining to wage and hour violations.
