My practice surrounds personal injury and death claims litigation, mostly from a defensive posture.  Litigation has included serious heavy truck, oil field operational accidents and LPG/NG explosions.  I have represented owners, contractors, and subcontractors in commercial disputes.  I commonly defend personal injury and death cases involving oil field operations, premises and product defects and have toxic tort experience.  I have represented clients/insureds in all stages of litigation and thus am familiar with most carriers' policies and procedures.  Between 1989 and 2001, I served as the Presiding Municipal Court Judge in the town of Palm Valley, Texas.  Between 2001 and 2003 I served as a member of the City of Harlingen's Traffic and Safety Committee.  I am a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and active in the San Antonio Chapter.  I am a life member of the Sons of the Republic of Texas, MENSA, and a former President of the Cameron County Chapter of the American Cancer Society.  Prior engineering experience includes design, construction, and operation of oil and gas well drilling and field operation equipment, which greatly helps in my oil field accident practice.  I have an active trial practice throughout South Texas.
