Summary

I have tried approximately 25 jury trials for personal injury plaintiffs, misdemeanor prosecution, and criminal defense. I graduated law school cum laude from SMU Dedman School of Law in Dallas in 2014. Prior to law school, played professional basketball in Europe for eight years in Belgium, Cyprus, Germany, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey. During law school, while clerking at a Dallas law firm, I helped represent professional basketball players and agents in international arbitrations, winning over half a million dollars in arbitration awards. I was also a student prosecutor for the Wylie Municipal Court where I first-chaired several trials. I am also an instructor for the Trojan Horse Method, a group that teaches lawyers from all across the county how to develop the emotional core of their case so the jury can experience their clients’ stories. The method is specific, detailed, efficient, and challenges trial lawyers to push themselves to the limit by intense training that is critiqued and videotaped. Trojan Horse teaches trial presentation skills combined with theory that works.
