I’m proud of a trial that involved three African-American gentlemen who were injured in a car accident. The defense insurance company refused to pay, thinking a jury would focus on their troubled past. The insurance company hired one of the best trial lawyers in the state so I was extremely concerned. I knew my clients needed someone to fight for them. Against all odds, we took this case to trial and the jury came back with a verdict in our favor. It was a greater victory than many of the large dollar settlements I’ve obtained in the past.
Due to my science background, I started my legal career in the field of intellectual property. After getting some courtroom experience, I realized that being a trial lawyer would best fit my personality. I then searched for a field that allowed me to be in trial, use my science background and help real people. Personal injury turned out to be the perfect fit. I should have listened to my parents years ago.

I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. It was there I developed a love for family, friends and hard work. At 19, I moved to San Antonio, Texas where I developed a love for education, Texas culture and country music. At 29, I moved to San Diego, where I’ve met great people and had amazing experiences. I believe San Diego is an incredible city with the best legal community in the world. In my spare time, I enjoy being with family and friends, listening to all types of music and staying active with crossfit, MMA and hiking.
