After graduating from law school from 1982 to 1983, after I Justice McGee of the Supreme Court of Texas' law clerk. After completing my clerkship, I joined Scott Hulse, a large El Paso firm.

I am Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in both Civil Trial and Civil Appellate Law, and a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates holding the rank of Advocate. I have a general practice focusing upon litigation matters of all types. I have tried cases in state and federal courts in Texas and New Mexico, and I have briefed and argued appeals as lead counsel before the New Mexico Court of Appeals, various Texas courts of appeals, the Supreme Court of Texas, and the United States Courts of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. In addition, I have arbitrated securities and employment-related disputes on behalf of member firms before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (formerly the regulatory arms of the National Association of Securities Dealers and the New York Stock Exchange), and represented individual registered representatives in regulatory and disciplinary matters.
